Strawberry Sponge Tart Recipe

by Food Like Amma, April 19, 2012

Now that summer is looming there seem to be strawberries everywhere! I can’t resist the temptation of having them –not just because of the lower seasonal price but mostly because of the memories associated with them. The only downside to buying strawberries is they to need to be consumed within a short period of time or they turn bad. I am contemplating Strawberry Chutney! - but my sister J would say ‘Eew! …you just don’t mix fruit and chillies’ - so for now this Strawberry Tart is the first recipe in my quest for 101 ways to use strawberries before the end of the summer.

Dubbed ‘ a work in progress‘ mainly because I am not quite satisfied with the results…yet! The tart base tastes good but should look less sponge like - minus the holes. For this I recommend an electric beater or unwearied arms when whisking the eggs...even batter equals less air pockets equals less holes!

Jam Tart Recipe

To make Jam Tarts follow the Pastry Recipe in the previous post . The only other ingredient you need is Jam. Choose the jam flavor of your choice. Another suitable pastry shell recipe is the one I use for mince pies. This is a soft flaky texture which literally melts in the mouth!

Jam Tarts were the only Tart ever made by Amma. I still use this Tart Pastry Recipe for the base of all my tart recipes.To make Tart Pastry you will need flour butter, salt, sugar and ice water. These are basic ingredients found in almost any kitchen but the secret to perfect pastry lies in the method of making it.
