Quick and easy raspberry tart with marzipan

We have a lot of raspberries in our garden right now.
We pick about 400 g of fresh berries every other day. If Christian didn’t share the berries with his friends – we would probably get a lot more.
I got two “Autumn Bliss” plants from a colleague 6 years ago – now we have 15+. Last year we bought some yellow raspberries; it gives pies, cakes, and tarts a nice twist.

This is an easy recipe for a quick raspberry tart, quick because the shortcrust pastry is purchased in advance.

Quick and easy raspberry tart with marzipan

60 mins
Serves 8

Ingredients:

1 Shortcrust pastry ready rolled (Preferably a brand that uses butter)
350 g fresh raspberries – red and yellow
2 eggs
50 g sugar (75 g, if the berries are tangy)
5 g vanilla sugar, vanilla seeds from a vanilla bean or vanilla extract
160 g marzipan
50 g sugar
30 g butter – soft
60 g Oatmeal – Rolled Oats/Coarse Oatmeal

Instructions:

 

Mix the eggs and the sugar in a mixer add the vanilla. Tear or grate the marzipan and mix it in with the eggs. Mix until it is thick and almost lump free. It is a big portion and I use a large springform – about 26 cm x 7 cm, so it is fairly high cake tin.
Mix sugar softened butter and oatmeal to a homogeneous mass – if you think that it is too much for one tart – then bake the rest and make a crumble.
Press the pastry into the bottom of a large springform cake tin and place the fresh raspberries on top.
Whisk the marzipan-egg mixture and pour it carefully on top of the berries. On top sprinkle, you oatmeal-sugar mass evenly.

Bake the raspberry tart at 175 ° C for 45 minutes. Baking time may vary so keep an eye on the tart, it is supposed to be golden – not dark.

Tips:

• Our raspberry has a very sweet taste so 50 g sugar is enough. If you buy your berries they might be tangier so you try 75 g of sugar.

• You can use other kinds of berries like blueberries or blackberries but you need to adjust the amount of sugar you add to the sweetness of the fruit.
