This tart recipe is bursting with the flavours of summer and delightful enjoyed with a dollop of ice cream. Be careful with the lavender as the perfumey flavour can be a little overbearing, we just sprinkle a few flower buds on at the end for a floral hint and pretty presentation. If lavender isn’t available to you, try sprinkling with some thyme leaves instead.

Most pre-made pastry brands are naturally vegan, but double check on the packaging if you are catering for vegans.

Method

1
Place the almond milk in a pan with the sugar and the vanilla, and heat until the sugar has dissolved
2
Mix the cornflour with a drop or two of water and mix until it forms a paste. Stir the cornflour into the warmed almond milk. Whisk to prevent lumps and cook for a few minutes until thickened. Take off the heat and leave to cool
3
Preheat the oven to 190°C/gas mark 5 and place a tray in there to heat up. Placing the tart on a hot tray to cook will ensure the bottom cooks nicely
4
Half the peaches, remove the stone and slice into 4mm slices
5
Lay the pastry out on some greaseproof paper and prick all over with a fork to prevent it from puffing up too much
6
Spread the crème pâtissière over the pastry, leaving a 1.5cm border (you may not need to use it all)
7
Next arrange the peaches overlapping and in rows across the tart. Sprinkle with icing sugar and carefully transfer to the hot tray in the oven
8
Cook for 20–30 minutes or until the tart is nice and caramelised and cooked all the way through – the bottom should be nice and crisp
9
Sprinkle with lavender flowers and serve up hot or room temperature
