Fresh Fruit Tart

Summer Fruit & Custard Tart

The fresh fruit tart is always a winner in the summer time!

So refreshing with all the flavors of summer packed into every bite!

Every time I make a fruit tart I pretty much use  different fruits every time.

Mixed berries like raspberry, blueberry and blackberry or sometimes I just use all strawberries!

Summer Fruit and Custard Tart

This time I didn’t use any strawberries because I had so many other great fruits like Mango, Kiwi, Raspberry and Black Plums!

The Star Fruit (carambola) made it’s starring appearance this time too!

Whatever fruits you decide to use  you cannot go wrong with these base recipes to tie it all together!

  2. Dear Gretchen,

    I stumbled on your blog just at the time when I was beginning to get interested in baking last December. And it has been a fabulous journey since. It seems you are always there to help and guide, and that’s a blessing (what with so many disasters lurking in every cake; it helped tremendously when you posted the comment on FB about masters failing more times than the amateur even tries). My biggest project till date has been a two-tier, red velvet cream cheese anniversary cake and it just would not have been possible without your tutorials.
    And the latest e-book I received last Sunday was a cherry on top!! I really really appreciate it. Thank you ever so much for being the happy, cheerful, generous, and lovely person you are.
    Wishing you luck and success and eagerly awaiting the next recipe. Sorry about the length of the comment 🙁
    Much love

    1. AWesome! Im so glad that you have found a haven here! I do try to help as much as I can.
      I am happy to hear that you have had success & a 2 tier anniversary cake is no small feat! Congrats!
      Thankyou for the comment and for being a part of my pastry family! 🙂

    You are definitely a “kitchen rock star”! I used to enjoy making cakes as a sort of hobby, but you’ve turned it into more of a passion with your incomparable videos and tutorials. Thanks for all you do! Rock On Gretchen!!

  4. Just downloaded your free Ebook on quick breads. I’ve been a subscriber for a while but am wondering if I have missed many of these great books?

  5. My culinary students made round sugar cookies with your recipe, added a lemony cream cheese frosting and decorated them with fruit for individual fruit pizzas. They were a huge hit at a wedding shower. Thanks!

  6. Hey Gretchen!
    I want to know if there is a substitute for using baking beans when blind baking the tart shells?
    Can I use any other beans like the “Channa” Chick peas instead?

  7. Gretchen,

    Firstly, thank you for sharing all of your great recipes and tips. Love, love, love them!

    Secondly, just wondering if I can make this recipe for fruit tarlets?

    Many thanks,
