Lovely for afternoon tea with a cuppa .

Ingredients (makes 1 tart)

  • 500 Grams Plain flour
  • 250 grams Butter
  • 200grams Sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1- 1 1/2 cups jam ( any flavor )


  1. Grease a 30 cm flan tin well with butter or cooking spray. Set oven to 180 degrees
  2. Mix flour and sugar in a bowl, Work in butter with clean dry hands
  3. Add eggs and ,again, mix in with hands. At this stage the eggs don't need to be mixed in 100 %. When a thick dough has been reached you are ready to use.
  4. Break off a small handful of dough to be used for decoration, Place the rest on the prepared tray and push all over the base and sides evenly.
  5. Spread the jam over the base .
  6. Break off pieces of the reserved dough and roll out into thin sausage shapes. Place them on top of the jam to form a lattice effect
  7. Bake for approx 30-40 minutes or until pastry is light golden

Notes... This pastry is the same i've used in my "festive fruit flan" recipe. Its a good way to use any left over pastry. I don't always do the lattice, sometimes i cut shapes out of the pastry and put those on top of the jam. Any flavor jam can be used, but i love any berry jam on this .

  • yum, that looks pretty amazing.


  • This looks great to serve with a cuppa for morning or afternoon tea. Loving the idea with plum jam.


  • Thanks for the recipe. Looks good.


  • mmm yummo, i think i will use plum jam!


  • This looks amazing – I imagine it with halved apricots.


  • A lot of butter and sugar but I must admit it will be nice with a cuppa for morning or afternoon tea.


  • Easy to make with puff pastry or short crust pastry as well !


  • Looks delicious


  • This looks so pretty! Almost too good to eat…almost!


  • Love the idea of this and the pasty looks easy to make.


  • A dessert everyone would love,just add cream or vanilla ice cream! Delicious!

    • We usually just eat is as is … but I like the way you think !


  • This is one of my favourite tarts. I haven’t made it in a while. You are tempting me. :-)


  • I love the look of lattice tarts – so traditional and perfect for a full afternoon tea. Lattice tarts are so much fun to make, bake and eat.

    • A good way to use homemade strawberry jam too.
