Fresh Fruit and Custard Tart

Recipe Image

Preparation facts

Yield: 6 servings


2–4 cups (260–520g) of ripe, fresh fruit to use for topping the tart.


One 10-inch (25cm) tart-shell

1 3/4 cups (420mL) vanilla-flavored soy drink

4 egg yolks

1/4 cup (50g) fruit sweetener

1/4 cup (30g) cornstarch

Yellow glaze:

1 cup (340g) unsweetened jam

1/4 cup (60mL) water


Place soy drink in a heavy bottom saucepan over medium heat and let simmer.

Whip yolks, sweetener and cornstarch with an electric mixer until fluffy. With mixer at low speed, pour 1/2 cup (120mL) of hot soy drink into the mixture.

Pour yolk mixture into remaining soy drink on stove, whisking constantly. Raise heat and use both whisk and rubber spatula to keep the custard free of lumps as it comes to a boil.

Reduce heat and simmer custard for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Immediately pour hot custard into a bowl; directly cover its surface with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled.

To make the glaze:

In a small pan bring your favorite jam and water to a full boil. Lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Strain the mixture through a sieve. Use while still hot.

To assemble the tart:

Brush the inside of the baked and cooled tart-shell with hot yellow glaze. Let the glaze cool 5 minutes before smoothing custard in bottom of the tart-shell.

Arrange fruit in concentric circles over the custard working from the outside towards the center. Place the fruit in overlapping layers or close together so that as little of the custard shows through as possible.

Brush remaining hot glaze over fruit for shine and to hold fruit in place.

Chill the tart for at least 1 hour before serving.
