  • ground mace ½ tsp
  • ground nutmeg ½ tsp
  • lemon 1, zested


  • Step 1

    In a food mixer, whizz the flour, sugar and butter and bring together until it looks like breadcrumbs. Add enough egg to bring together to form a pastry. Remove and chill for at least 1 hour before using.

  • Step 2

    Heat the oven to 190c/fan 170c/gas 5. Line a 20cm tart ring or tart tin with the sweet pastry. Fill with baking paper and baking beans and bake blind for 10 minutes. Take out the beans and paper and cook for another 5 minutes.

  • Step 3

    In a mixing bowl, stir all the filing ingredients together then pour into the tart case. Put the tart back into the oven and bake for a further 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Serve slices with a dollop of crème fraîche.
