Bonjour à tous,

Raspberries  are a favorite of mine and it is raspberry season here in SW France. Note if you cannot get fresh raspberries, frozen will be fine.

Raspberry Frangipane Tart

Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 8-10

for the pastry
  • 200g flour
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 125g cold butter, diced
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3-4 tablespoons ice water
for the filling
  • 150g butter, room temperature
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 2ml almond essence
  • 2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
  • 150g ground almonds
  • 50g flour
  • 200g raspberries
  • 5 tablespoons raspberry preserves/jam

  1. To make the pastry, combine the flour, icing sugar and butter in a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles chunky breadcrumbs.
  2. Add the egg yolk and with the motor running, add the ice water, spoon by spoon until the pastry comes together and forms a ball.
  3. Remove from the processor and wrap in cling film. Place in the fridge and allow to chill for 30 minutes.
  4. Pre-heat the oven to 180°c.
  5. When the pastry has chilled, roll out to fit your tart dish and line the bottom and sides.
  6. To make the frangipane filling, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  7. Add the essence, eggs and egg yolk and mix until combined.
  8. Fold in the ground almonds and flour and set aside.
  9. Spread the raspberry preserves over the pastry (to cover the bottom surface) and dollop on the Frangipane mixture.
  10. Spread and smooth the creamy filling and dot the surface with the fresh raspberries.
  11. Place the tart in the oven and allow to bake for 30 minutes.
  12. When the tart is baked, remove from the oven and allow to come to room temperature before serving.

très bon vendredi à tous, Leeann x


  1. Beautiful. Raspberries are my favorite also. I especially enjoy them with chocolate, or mixed with vanilla yogurt. My husband and I plan to move to Southwest France next May. I'm afraid I may miss raspberry season. Maybe I'll move the date forward to April.
    Each Monday, I post a blog meme called Dreaming of France. I'd love it if you played along. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme
