maybe in these hot summer days you are not really in the mood for baking, but preparing a blueberry tart is a real pleasure!
obviously the best choice would be to pick up the blueberries by your own but as it's not always possible you can also get some from the greengrocer.
the blueberry tart is a classic summer cake, tasty and good-looking, perfect for every occasion.
you will need:
- shortcrust pastry (better if home made) for the bottom
- 300 ml of milk
- 3 eggs
- 2 spoons of flour
- 1/2 glass of white sugar (also icing and vanilla sugar)
- 300 g of fresh blueberries
roll out the pastry in the previously buttered cake pan (preferably pottery). make small holes with a fork and put in the preheated owen for 10-15 minutes (or until the pastry becomes gold). take off from the owen and leave aside to cool.
in the meantime prepare the custard: put together milk and eggs with sugar. boil and add the flour. leave on the fire for 3 minutes after boiling and take aside.
spread the pastry with the custard. add immediately (when the custard is still hot) the blueberries. leave for cooling for at least 30 minutes. before serving you can sprinkle with icing sugar.
