Bake for 15 minutes, then take out the paper and beans and cook for another 2 minutes to dry the pastry out. Turn the oven down to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5.

    Beat the butter with the sugar, then beat in the eggs, almonds, flour, baking powder and lemon zest. Scoop this mixture into the tart case and level the top. Add the pineapple rings. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the mixture around the pineapple is puffed and golden. Put a cherry onto the centre
    of each pineapple ring while the tart is still warm.
