I have a special weekend recipe for you all! This is my frangipane tart and it is simple and vary versitile. You can replace the berries with figs, nuts, poached pears, orange, stewed apple, honey and pistachio and even chocolate!
Today I have used raspberries, blueberries and some flaked almonds with a hint of lemon using zest in the frangipane mix. Hope you have fun with this recipe and enjoy!
