A delicious late summer tart made with a melt-in-mouth buttery spelt-pepita crust, filled with a mildly nutty pepita frangipane cream and topped with a mixture of mirabelles and ederberries (or any fruit you have on hand).
Mirabelle is another delectable European heirloom plum. Small round yellow fruit with yellow red dots. They’re the smallest of the more than 2,000 plum varieties found worldwide, weighing only about 10 g each. The ripe mirabelle plums are delicately aromatic, juicy, sweet, low in calories and rich in vitamins. The mirabelle was probably named after plums grown in Southern France where they were cultivated under the name of mirabel, which means look (mira) and, of course beautiful. Mirabelle plums are very good for compote, jam or cakes and tarts.
Elderberry is dark purple fruit from the elderberry shrub. It's a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins. It has long been used in traditional medicine and appears to have some medicinal benefits. According to Webmd, elderberries could help tame inflammation, lessen stress, and help protect your heart, too. Some experts recommend elderberry to help prevent and ease cold and flu symptoms. Raw and unripe elderberries contain a poison called cyanide. So they should always be cooked before they're consumed.

CrustFilling
  • 150 g White spelt flour #630
  • 50 g Ground pepitas
  • 25 g Coconut sugar
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 120 g Cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 Egg, medium
  • 60 g Unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 100 g Homemade vanilla sugar
  • 120 g Pepita, finely ground
  • 15 g White spelt flour #630
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • 2 Eggs, medium
  • 300 g Mirabelle
  • Some elderberries
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine spelt flour, ground pepita, coconut sugar and salt. Rub in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add in egg and mix until a ball starts to form. Dump the dough into a 23-25 cm / 9-10 inch tart pan with a removeable bottom. Press the dough evenly into bottom and up the sides of the pan. Prick dough all over with a fork. Place the pan in the fridge for an hour. Rinse and stone the plums. Make sure not to half them. The plums should keep their shape.
  2. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Put the tart pan on a baking tray and bake until the edges are set and lightly golden, 18-20 minutes. Set aside to cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 180C/350F. Cream together the butter and vanilla sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the ground pepita, spelt flour, salt, and eggs and blend again until well combined.
  3. Spoon the pepita frangipane into the tart crust. Top with mirabelle plums and elderberries. Bake the tart in the middle of hot oven until the top is puffed and firm to touch, 35-40 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool. Dust the tart with powdered sugar and slice into wedges to serve.

This all looks amazingly good. I think I have eaten and drunk elderberries in about every way possible, other than as shown here!

I do have some elderberry chews when I feel something nasty coming on. And your tart looks good and is an interesting combination of ingredients.

I did have to check out what 'Pepitas' are, but the whole recipe looks and sounds delicious. I might swap out the elderberries for another fruit, but only because after what you said about the cyanide, which I never knew, I would be too cautious about using them.

Beautiful and delicious looking tart. I had read something about the elderberry plants, that the whole plant is poisonous. I don't know whether it applies to all types or only to certain types.

It does not look very appetizing with that dark filling and sploshed mirabellas but I do love elderberry! We make juice from it here and tea from the elderflower.

DEZMOND 12/8/22 13:30

@Nancy Chan The plant itself is very healthy, especially flower, but berries are poisonous when they are not ripe and it is better to cook them.

This tart looks so beautiful and abundant - just like when late summer and early fall meet each other in one recipe. Terrific!

Mirabelle is a typical fruit of my region, I love it. Your tart looks wonderful!

Ooh my, another gorgeous recipe. I'd never have thought to make frangipane with pumpkin seeds, but what a fabulous idea. Mirabelles are only occasional and usually unexpected finds for me. I usually make clafoutis with them, but now I'm thinking I'd really like to try this.

So envious that you can get fresh elderberries. But I'm unaware of the cyanide presence in raw elderberries. Another glorious mirabelle creation!
