Fruit Tart


Yes you can cook pastry on your cabin BBQ, but you will need a BBQ dome. The one I use is from my wok, but you can buy them from Amazon or Ebay, just ensure that it is big enough to cover your dish. Soft fruit or frozen fruit is best, even better if you find some reduced in a supermarket, this one I used wonky strawberries and wonky blueberries.

Serves 4

1 roll of premade puff pastry
Soft fruit
1 tablespoon of light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
drizzle of vegetable oil
sprinkling of flour
1 metal dish

  • Oil the dish and sprinkle on some flour, this will hopefully stop it sticking
  • Mix the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl
  • Drap the pastry over the dish, don’t worry if it isn’t wide enough
  • slice the fruit if required and place in the middle of the pastry
  • Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the fruit
  • Fold the pastry over the edges of the fruit. If it is too long, just trim it off and use the excess as decoration
  • Loosely fold up some silver foil and place on the grill. This will reduce the direct heat on the bottom of th dish
  • Place the tart on top of the silver foil and cover with the BBQ dome
  • Swing over the direct heat and cook for around 30 minutes
  • Carefully lift off the lid and check the pastry, it should be golden brown
  • If you have any scorched bits spin the dish round and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes

Slice and serve with cream or ice cream – bon appétit

PS> It is inevitable that you will end up with a soggy bottom, but it’s still delicious.
