I love to bake with seasonal fruit, I suppose that is why I have been making so many tarts and simple buckle cakes. I do use chocolate and nuts as the basis of some of my cakes and tarts, but it is summer and there is so much beautiful fruit to celebrate. All I feel I need is a fresh fig , a handful of blueberries or a strip of rhubarb and I have a hero, no need for food colouring or fancy cake decorating techniques just a reliable cake batter or tart shell to fill or top and I am all done.
Fruit curds are another favorite, I have been lucky; the little lime tree I planted three years ago has given me such a huge crop of limes that I have been making a very popular lime and white chocolate tart. I just didn’t expect it would sell so fast. What will I do when I finally work through the crop? Lemon and white chocolate, or leave the tart in the season it belongs, and try a lemon and dark chocolate combination?
