Traditional Scottish Queens Tart Cake Recipe

This is a recipe for a jam and sultana tart. I have seen this recipe referred to under several names such as Queen Mary's Tart, Royal Tart or simply Queen's tart.

Queens Tart Cake

8 oz puff pastry
2 tablespoons jam (raspberry is traditional but most flavours will be fine)
2oz sugar
2 oz butter
2oz chopped mixed peel
1 tablespoon sultanas
2 beten eggs


Pre heat oven to 425F. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface and line a 7 inch (greased) flan dish. Spread the jam over the pastry. Melt the sugar and butter in a saucepan over a gentle heat. Add the mixed peel and sultanas. Remove from the heat then add the beaten eggs. Pour this mixture into the pastry case. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the filling is set.

The cake can be served hot (cooled slightly-obviously) or cold.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
