I have spent all weekend baking and have produced 8 different afternoon tea foods – muffins, cakes, tarts, brownies and slices, including the custard fruit tarts you see here. The others you won’t see just yet because I am preparing an e-book of afternoon tea foods which are grain, dairy, nut and refined sugar-free. I have a target of 50 recipes, the majority of which you will never see on this blog. I am having such fun doing this but it is damned hard work and the fridge and cake tins end up very full – not that my family are complaining. It is certainly a challenge to create the traditional fare but with no grain, dairy, nuts or refined sugar. It is a learning curve but only the successful recipes will find their way into the book so you can feel confident that if you attempt one of the recipes, it will work.
Meanwhile this fruit tart is a sample of what will be in the book. The pie crust has been adapted from the one Carol uses in her book, Indulge, which you can purchase on her blog, Ditch The Wheat.
