so, i thought about sharing a couple more (proper) facts about me in the course of the time, in kind of an (unofficial) series. today’s (embarrassing) fact: i like to read shitty novels. chicklits. trashy, female literature. you know, the kind that bookstores hide in the back most corner? and i admit, i’ve read them all… all the twilight books. in fact, not only have i read them, but i actually pretty much loved them. and, ahem, i might or might not have all the dvds at home, too, and watch them all the time occasionally. for your information, i was team edward, of course. ain’t no other undead like him.
blueberry almond tart
adapted from donna hay (mainly, i switched up the pears for blueberries – fresh ones, omitted the lemon zest and substituted the flour for more almond meal)
90g butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 cups blueberries, washed and patted dry
more sugar, for sprinkling
greek yogurt, to serve
preheat oven to 160°c / 320°f. place the butter and sugar in a bowl and mix well to combine. add the eggs, almond meal, flour and baking powder and process until just combined. spoon the mixture into a lightly greased tart pan. place the blueberries on top of the dough. bake for 35–40 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. sprinkle with the remaining sugar and allow to cool in the tin. serve with greek yogurt.
