Plum Tart

I have a new dessert recipe for the fruit lovers among you! The strong plum taste combined with lots of cinnamon makes this tart sooo delicious. The recipe has two particular features:

  1. I don’t use fresh plums, but dried ones that I soak overnight. As dried fruits are naturally very sweet, I don’t need to use a lot of other sweeteners. Besides the plums, I add only 5 dates to make this tart sufficiently sweet. No sugar or honey is needed. Furthermore, I always have dried fruits at home. Whenever I want, I can make this tart without planning a grocery shopping for fresh fruits in advance.
  2. Below the fruits, there is a wonderful thick cream made out of cashews. If you regularly read my recipe articles, you know how much I love cashews. Of course, I also like to experiment with other nuts and seeds (like for ex. for the vegetable quiche). Though, my absolutely favorite ingredient to make vegan and soy-free alternatives for dairy products are cashews.This plum tart is not only a great dessert, but can also be enjoyed as a healthy snack. You can eat some dried fruits, some nuts and a slice of wholegrain spelt bread. Regarding the ingredients, there wouldn’t be a big difference. But for the taste, I recommend you choosing the slice of plum tart! 😉

Slightly cover the dried plum halves with water and soak them overnight.

You need about half of the soaking water to make the dough. Pour it into a big vessel and add the spelt flour, the ground almonds, the oil and a pinch of salt. Knead this into a dough.

Put the dough on a round baking tin of 28 cm in diameter covered with baking-paper. It should have an edge of 2 cm in height.

Now you can prepare the cream layer. Blend the cashews wit the rest of the soaking water, the dates, a pinch of salt and the cinnamon. The result should be a viscous cream. You might need to add some more water to reach the right consistency. Spread the cream on the dough.

Place the plums on top of the tart.

The tart needs to bake in the oven for 35 min at 170C/338F.
