The weather was bloody awful today. Rainy and cold. But it was summer in my fridge which was stacked with blueberries, gooseberries and red currants (my absolute favourite berries!).
I ate half of them fresh and the other half I worked into a summer berry tart using a recipe from a German website called mamas-rezepte.de (i.e. mother’s recipes).
For the pastry I mixed 150g flour, 50g sugar, 80g butter, a pinch of salt and 1 egg.
Next you need to prick the bottom with a fork and cover it with 2 tablespoons of nuts or bread crumbs. I added one tablespoon of cornflour to prevent the berry juice from soggying up the bottom.
Now you add the berries and bake the tart in the oven for 25 minutes at 200C before adding the custard filling.
