Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 3-4
Ingredients
  • For crust
  • 125 g (1 cup) spelt flour (or other flour you choose)
  • 85 g (6 tbsp) cold butter (I used vegan 'butter' spread)
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (or raw cane sugar)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • For dough glaze: 1 egg yolk + 1 tbsp water
  • Note: Recipe for dough crust slightly adapted from Bon Appetit
  • For filling
  • 7-8 larger plums, pitted and sliced
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar (or raw cane sugar)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ground almonds
  • Note: 1 cup = 250 ml
Preparation
  1. In a large mixing bowl add flour, sugar, salt and stir. Add cold butter (previously cut in smaller pieces) and rub with your fingers until mixture gets crumbly and there are only very small pieces of butter left.
  2. Add beaten egg and mix with fork until dough comes together. If it's too soft, add 1-2 tbsp of flour.
  3. Turn out dough on lightly floured surface and knead with your hands until it's mostly smooth.
  4. Form a ball, wrap it in plastic foil and place in fridge for at least 2 hours.
  5. Prepare plums by slicing them and putting into a mixing bowl. Add sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and ground almonds and stir. Set aside.
  6. Remove dough from the fridge.
  7. Preheat oven to 180 C / 356 F.
  8. Lightly flour the surface and roll out dough into a circle (you can do it in between two plastic foils to make it easier).
  9. Place it on a baking tray previously lined with baking paper. If it breaks slightly when moving to the tray, just fix it using your fingers.
  10. Arrange plums on top of dough leaving edges free so you can fold them over the filling.
  11. Brush dough with beaten egg yolk + water.
  12. Bake for about 30 min or until crust gets golden brown.
  13. Leave it to cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!
