Rhubarb Frangipani Tart

Updated: Mar 12


For me any recipe with almonds in is a winner and this recipe will not disappoint. I have paired the almonds with my homemade rhubarb jam in this recipe and topped with more rhubarb and flaked almonds.


This is a delicious almond tart with a nice thin buttery pastry case which not only looks great but tastes it too!!!


I have made it in an oblong flan tin as it makes it easy to slice but you could use a round flan tin if you prefer.




Start by making the pastry. You can do this by hand or in a food processor. You need to rub the butter into the flour and sugar until you have fine breadcrumbs.



Then add the egg and combine using the pulse function (if using the food processor) so you do not overwork the dough. Keep pulsing until a ball of pastry starts to form. If making by hand mix in the egg and use your hands to form the dough.



The pastry then needs to be wrapped and placed in the fridge to keep cool for at least 30 minutes.


Next to make the filling put the flour, soft butter, sugar, almonds, eggs and almond extract into the bowl of a stand mixer or you can use a hand mixer. Mix until it is pale in colour.



Take the pastry out of the fridge and lightly flour the work surface and roll out the pastry and line the tart tin.



Trim the edges and spread an even layer of rhubarb jam on the base. Jam recipe


Then put the filling on top of the rhubarb jam and level.



Finally arrange some sliced rhubarb on the top then add the blanched almonds.



Bake until golden brown.




Brush with apricot jam to glaze.



Leave to cool before slicing and serving.

Sarah's Extra Slice........


I do not blind bake my Bakewell tart case as the pastry always bakes well without needing to.


Always try to use a good quality almond extract

My rectangular fluted edge tin measure 36 x 12cm (14” x 4¾”).


You can easily make your own Rhubarb jam but if you don’t have time to make it then always buy a good quality one with a high fruit content.
