Peach Frangipane Tart

Peach Frangipane Tart.  Another delicious French Classic! Combining seasonal Peaches in a sweet flan case with a deliciously light and fluffy custardy Frangipane filling. And yes! You can use canned peaches!

Frangipane is a delicious Almond-mealy custardy filling, very quick to whisk together, combining this with the peaches it’s like the easiest baked tart recipe providing you already have the flan case.

This recipe uses a Margaret Fulton flan base recipe combined with the Martha Stewart Frangipane filling. You could try Nectarines too- equally delicious!

I suggest cutting the peaches into no thicker than 1.5cm thick. Also not overloading with too much fruit (normally the more the better- however in this case you want to see some of the frangipane filling rising up around the peaches).

  • Approx 3-4 peaches, halved, stone removed and cut into wedges 1-1.5 cm thick. (alternatively canned peaches, drained and patted dry)

  12. Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.
  13. Remove from oven, remove beads and baking paper. Reduce oven heat to 180 degrees Celsius
