This special occasion fruit tart is baked in a 25cm/10” dish or tin although you could make two smaller tarts with these ingredients. It is a lovely treat when apricots are in season. Serve slices of the Apricot Frangipane Tart either warm or cold, as they come. For an extra treat, a little custard, cream or mascarpone will complement the flavours of the wholemeal flour and apricots.
