Nectarine and Almond Tart

Nectarine and Almond Tart

This tart recipe is great with most fruits but I have teamed it up here with nectarines as they are in abundance at the moment.


For 8 people


  • 250 grams plain flour
  • 125 grams caster sugar
  • 125 grams cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 125 grams butter (room temperature)
  • 125 grams caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • 250 grams almond meal
  • 3 tablespoon(s) plain flour
  • 8 nectarines cut into 1cm slices

Nectarine and Almond Tart Directions

    1. For the pastry, blend flour, sugar and butter in a food processor until it resembles breadcrumbs.  Add the egg and blend again until the mixture starts to come together.  Pour out onto bench and bring together to form a dough being careful not to over work the pastry.  Flatten into a disc and allow to rest in the fridge 1 hour.
    2. To make almond paste, cream butter and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer. Add eggs 1 at a time, along with vanilla extract, scraping down sides occasionally. Add flour and almond meal and beat well until well combined.
    3. Line a  23cm (base measurement) tart tin. Fill evenly with the almond paste mixture and arrange nectarine slices on top. Allow to rest in fridge 30 minutes.
    4. Preheat oven to 160C. Cook tart for 40-50 minutes or until golden and cooked. Allow to cool, dust with icing sugar and serve.
