Nectarine Frangipane Tart features as a “top of the list” bake when I’m meal planning for late summer visitors here at the Kitchen Shed; it’s an easy bake which freezes well.

The pastry I use is my go to rich butter pastry and you can make the pastry case in advance or buy a readymade case if you prefer. The frangipane is an all in one mix spread over the pastry base and topped with sliced nectarines.

Once baked, the fruit and frangipane filling is glazed with sieved apricot jam. Serve the tart warm or cold and if you really want a treat, add a dollop or two of creme fraiche.

I tend to wait for the bargain trays of nectarines or peaches on sale at our local supermarket – this year I got 2 trays for 8 euros, I call that a proper bargain!

It’s been a nectarine marathon cooking session this year, two tarts, one Peach Streusel Traybake and some Slow Cooker Peach Jam.

Equipment

  • 1 x 23 cm ( 9 inch ) loose bottomed flan / tart tin.
  • ceramic beans, rice or dried beans for blind baking
  • baking parchment

Ingredients

Pastry:

  • 200 g plain /all purpose flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 100 g chilled butter, cut into small cubes
  • 4 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 1 egg yolk freeze the white for later
  • 2 tablespoons water

Frangipane:

  • 110 g softened butter
  • 110 g caster / extra fine sugar
  • 110 g ground almonds / almond meal
  • 35 g plain flour / all purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 beaten eggs

Fruit Topping:

  • 4 nectarines or peaches sliced

Glaze:

  • 4 tablespoons Approximately 3 – 4 tablespoons sieved apricot jam

Instructions

  • Make the pastry case by sifting flour and salt into the mixing bowl of the stand mixer. Add cubes of butter and mix on slow with a paddle attachment until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the icing sugar and briefly mix.
  • Briefly whisk egg yolk and water in a small bowl before adding to the pastry mix. Mix on slow until the pastry forms. This shouldn’t take long at all, less than a minute – you don’t want to overwork the pastry.
  • Wrap the pastry in cling film and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes until firm but not hard.
  • Grease 1 x 23 cm ( 9 inch ) loose bottomed flan tin.
  • Roll out your pastry to about the thickness of a £1 coin ( ⅛ inch ) making sure the pastry circle is large enough for the diameter of your flan tin plus twice its depth.
  • Carefully line your tin with your pastry. Prick the bottom of the case with a fork and pop in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 200℃ / 180℃ fan /400℉ / Gas Mark 6.
  • Line your pastry case with baking parchment and fill with ceramic beans, rice or dried beans and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and carefully set aside the paper and beans. Pop the pastry case back in the oven for 5 minutes.
  • Leave to cool before preparing your fruit and making the frangipane.
  • Make your all in one frangipane by placing all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and beating together for a couple of minutes.
  • Spread the frangipane into your pastry case and arrange the nectarine slices in concentric circles on the top of your frangipane, pressing them gently into the frangipane slightly.
  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until the frangipane is golden brown.
  • Brush with warmed and sieved apricot jam. Leave to cool before removing from the tin.

Notes

  • Serve warm or cool with a lovely dollop of creme fraiche and enjoy.
  • Peaches or plums can be substituted for nectarines.

    Sarah, i almost always learn something new when I come on your blog you have the most amazing deserts and pastries and this nectarine frangipane-tart is no exception. While I was going through your post I was imagining myself have a slice with a cup of tea.

    • Thanks for the lovely compliment Fred, a slice of frangipane tart is delicious with a cup of tea.

  • Wow – that is just stunning!! I just love nectarines. They are my favorite stone fruit. I’ve been gobbling them up like crazy the last couple of weeks. I’ve never made a tart- but I may have to try now that you’ve inspired me!

  • I love how tart nectarines are when they’re fresh from the tree. I tried using apricots for the same reason, and they were delicious, so I bet they make a great dessert!

  • I love frangipane Sarah but it is so long since I baked anything with it in – a few years in fact! I would definitely love this tart and think it would make a great dessert to make for guests too!

  • You had me at frangipane. I am SUCH a sucker for an almond croissant. But this pie sounds like the perfect summer pie for me because I also adore ALL OF THE STONE FRUITS. And it looks so easy!

  • Thanks Fred and it’s a pleasure to share the recipe. Philadelphia in the snow with a slice of frangipane tart sounds a great idea.

    • Thanks for popping by Lynn, I can’t resist frangipane, I love almonds and it’s my go to dessert, we even have a frangipane tart with mincemeat at Christmas.

    • Thanks Marie, I must admit a few slices only go into the freezer so I can’t eat them, desserts are my downfall.

    • Thanks Sarah, frangipane is a real favourite here, nuts and fruit go so well together. I’m looking forward to apple season so I can make a Tarte Normande.

    • Thanks Gloria, my nectarine frangipane tart is my go to easy dessert if we have last minute guests.

  • Sarah this is one beautiful tart! I love nectarines and eat more of them than I do peaches even. Congratulations on being featured on FF!

    • Thanks Julie, the nectarines seem so much sweeter than the peaches this year so they’ve been a real favourite here. It was a lovely surprise to see my Nectarine Frangipane Tart featured on FF.

    • Thanks Angie, I bet a mini version was so cute! I know what you mean about peach hairs, my son won’t eat peaches because of them.

  • So so pretty, I adore desserts like this and am definitely bookmarking this to make the next time we have people over for Sunday lunch. Thanks so much for hooking up with August’s round of Simple and in Season 🙂

    • Thanks Katie, let me know how you get on and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do here at the Kitchen Shed. A pleasure to link up with Simple and in Season 🙂

  • Oooooh this is so my cup of tea! In fact, I believe this yummy tart goes perfectly with a cup of tea 😉 Pinned and saved for later!

    • Thanks Juliana, it would be a good idea for a party or a picnic, thanks for the suggestion, I’ll add it in my post 🙂

  • Absolutely love the sound of this Sarah, it looks so pretty too with how you’ve arranged the fruit. Frangipane is one of our favourites here and I can imagine that with the nectarine it would be amazing. Scrummy 🙂
    Angela x

    • Thanks Angela, the nectarines are so sweet this year and they go so well with the frangipane. x

  • Ooh yes please! I do like a frangipane tart – reminds me of my own go to pudding for visitors which is my raspberry bakewell – similar sort of idea, only with raspberries instead of peaches. May have to have a go at a nectarine version as I really love nectarines – I have pinned this for future reference! Eb x

    • Thanks Eb, a raspberry bakewell sounds delicious, a frangipane go so well with fresh fruit x

  • Oh wow – this looks absolutely heavenly! We just got back from a week in Spain and the nectarines were enormous and totally delicious. But I couldn’t convince my fruit-hating son to try them. I wonder if a dessert like this would tempt him. Thanks for linking up with #CookBlogShare

    • Thanks Mandy, what a shame your son doesn’t like fruit, hopefully as he gets older he’ll change his mind & you never know a Nectarine tart might just tempt him to try.
