Vegan Fruit Tart

Vegan Fruit Tart

We love fruit tarts! You can play with the ingredients to suit the seasons and you can have them warm in the winter or cold with ice cream in the summer. They are also easy to make vegan, making them look beautiful or rustic and wholesome. Fruit crumbles are also so adaptable and a sweet treat that can be altered to suit the seasonal fruit available. We are already excited about the wild red currants we forage around our home at MoaAlm Mountain Retreat in July.

We hope these two recipes inspire you to treat yourself to a fruity dessert!

Apple and Berry Tart


• 270g All-Purpose Flour

•1 cup Icing Sugar

•Pinch of Salt

•Pinch of Cinnamon

•140g Non-dairy Butter

•2tbsp Cold Water

•5 big apples

•1cup frozen berries, thawed

•Pinch of Cinnamon

•1tsp lemon juice

•50g Brown Sugar

•2tbsp water


First, cut the apples into cubes. Then pour brown sugar, lemon juice, water and cinnamon into the pan and heat it on the medium heat for about 5 minutes. Once it starts to bubble, add the apples and cook it until they become soft and a little bit brown, then put to one side.

Next, make the tart dough by mixing flour, icing sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add the butter and with your fingers massage it into the flour mix. It should be crumbly, then add slowly the water. If the mix is still pretty dry, add more water, if too wet, add some more flour. Knead it for a few minutes until the dough is nice and moist. Make a dough into a ball, oil it and keep it in the fridge for an hour.

Then separate the dough into two and roll one part into a circular shape, take your tart tin and press it at the bottom, making sure that dough covers the sides too. Then add your apples and thawed berries on top. Spread them evenly. Now roll another part of the dough into long stripes and cover the top, joining the stripes to the edges. Be creative, you can make any design you want. 

Preheat your oven to 180 C degrees, sprinkle some brown sugar on top of the tart and bake it for 25 minutes until golden brown.
