Easy Rhubarb and Apple Tart

Sweet, tart (pardon the pun), fruity and very easy to make, this dessert is a great one for high teas, parties or any occasion that needs a bit more sugar. You can experiment with flavours, fruits and how much jam or sugar you add, and prepare all of the elements in advance to save time before a big event.

Ingredients for the tart dough:

  • 250g plain flour
  • 100g almond meal
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbs caster sugar
  • 100g vegan butter
  • 2 1/2 tbs water

Ingredients for the topping:

  • 370g apple, peeled and diced (any apple type you like!)
  • 200g rhubarb, sliced
  • 1 tbs lime juice
  • 2 tbs caster sugar
  • 1/3 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tbs raspberry jam
  • Extra jam and water (about 3 tbs jam with 1 tbs water)
  • Flaked almonds, optional
  • Freeze dried raspberry powder, optional

Instructions for the tart dough:

  • Preheat oven to approximately 180 degrees Celsius, line a baking tray with baking paper. You can make this with or without a tart tin (my preference is to make it with a tin that has no base, just the structure). 
  • Place flour, almond meal, salt and sugar and blend for 30 seconds.
  • Add butter and blend until the mixture resembles thick breadcrumbs. 
  • Add the water and blend until mixture comes together.
  • Press mixture evenly onto prepared tray, forming a rectangle. 

Instructions for the topping: 

  • Combine all ingredients minus the almonds and powder in a large bowl and leave for 30 minutes while dough rests. 
  • Pour mixture (including juice) onto prepared dough.
  • Cover and place in the oven for approximately 1 hour, or until the apple is cooked through.
  • Remove from the oven and brush with extra jam (water it down to create more of a sauce).
  • Leave to cool before serving.
