Method

  1. Roll out the pastry and line a 27cm x 19cm (11in x 7in) loose-bottomed tart tin. Prick the base and line with foil and baking beans (push the beans right to the edges). Chill for 15 mins.
  2. Bake for 15 mins at 190°C (375°F, gas mark 5). Remove the beans and foil and return to the oven for 5 mins until the pastry is a pale biscuit colour.
  3. Melt the butter and sugar in a pan, pour into a bowl and beat in the eggs and almonds.
  4. Spread the tart case with a little jam and the blueberries, then pour the egg mixture carefully over the top. Bake in the oven for 20 mins until the mixture is golden, risen and springy to the touch.
