Sharing a bit of Tart

For all you dessert lovers out there I thought I’d follow up my last post with the recipe for my Peach and Raspberry Tart.  This is a first for me, posting a recipe and I don’t have any elaborate step by step pictures to guide you but it’s super easy and such a favorite amongst my family and friends that I simply had to share the love here.

Peach and Raspberry Tart

What you need:

125g butter, softened

1 cup castor sugar

1 tsp vanilla essence

2 eggs

1.5 cups self raising flour, sifted

3 peaches , halved and cut into wedges (I often use sliced peaches from the can)

150g of your chosen berries (blueberries, raspberrries, blackberries, whatever you fancy.  I often use unthawed frozen ones if fresh aren’t in season)

I tablespoon icing sugar

What you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius.
  2. Grease a 9 inch normal cake tin or a quiche dish (which is what I use).
  3. Place butter, sugar and vanilla in bowl of electric mixer and beat until light and creamy. Add eggs and continue to beat well.
  4. Transfer it to a bowl then fold in the flour (with a metal spoon) and add mixture to the quiche dish.
  5. This is the fun part.  Top with peaches, berries and icing sugar.
  6. Bake for one hour until cooked.  I usually test it after 55 minutes with a skewer


So there you have it.  Easy and delicious.  Hope you enjoy.

It’s great served with a dollop of double thick cream.


And no need to feel guilty afterwards.  Put on some music and dance it off!

  1. Yay, you posted the recipe! I was hoping you would! My husband loves peaches, and when we cheat and have a sweet treat, it would be nice to make him something like this. Thanks! It looks so tasty good. 🙂

    Don’t you just love a good recipe?

    A few weeks ago I saw that a blogger friend, Miriam, shared a recipe, which was a new thing for her to do. It sparked an idea for me, and I think I am going to try it.

    After all, my Iowa roots are deep in homemade cooking and I think it’d be a fun subject to write about. My hope is to post recipes from cookbooks that my grandma’s have recipes published in and also some recipes I use and love. If I stumble across anything yummy, I’ll try to share it here as well.

    I thought I’d kick off this new recipe adventure with Miriam’s tart. It looks refreshing and delicious at the same time.

    I especially love how she put in that last phrase about putting on some music and dancing it off! Now that’s what I call celebrating dessert!
