I recently discovered Festive Marmalade and came up with this Marmalade and Apple Tart as a way to use it in baking. However, you don’t need to use a festive marmalade for this recipe – any marmalade will work well.

I absolutely love a good tart and using a ready made shortcrust pastry case takes so much of the work out of this festive bake. However, you can make the pastry dough for the tart case the traditional way – in a tart tin with all purpose flour, granulated sugar, unsalted butter and a tart pan with a food processor to help if you feel like it. The choice is yours!

It doesn’t take long to make this easy orange marmalade tart and is great to enjoy for dessert or as part of an afternoon tea spread. The festive flavour makes such a refreshing change to orange marmalade too with all the flavour of the festive season but a standard marmalade could be enjoyed all year round and it’s perfect for the autumn and winter.

Can you make individual marmalade tarts?

Individual marmalade tarts would be a great alternative to jam tarts and could be made simply by following the recipe but using a sheet of ready made shortcrust pastry in a 12 hole muffin tray or yorkshire pudding tin instead of using one ready made pastry case.

The combination of apples and marmalade in the filling compliment each other perfectly and this marmalade pastry tart recipe feels like such a warming alternative to a traditional apple tart or pie with such a lovely crust to it. It’s the sort of dessert you could serve to grandparents and they’d love it but the children love it too – a dessert that spans generations.

How do you serve this marmalade tart?

The tart is great of its own, with cream, ice cream or custard and is one of our simpler recipes. It’s lovely as part of an afternoon tea spread but we love it warm for dessert too especially when we have family round for a special occasion.
