Cherry Frangipane Ramekins - Dish of the Month

Nigel Slater might not recognise this recipe as one of his, but it is an adaptation of the Plum (or greengage) and almond tart from the July chapter of The Kitchen Diaries II.

I was planning to have some homemade icecream for dessert (more of that in a later post) but my ice cream machine bowl appears to have a leak and is not working properly, so it needed longer to freeze.  I had about half an hour before I needed a dessert, so had a quick look through The Kitchen Diaires for inspiration and found this recipe.

I didn't have time to make pastry and had no plums or greengages, but I thought I could bake the frangipane in a ramekin and had a punnet of lovely ripe cherries that would do in place of the plums.

Frangipane is a mixture of butter, sugar, eggs, ground almonds and a little flour.  I've posted other recipes that include frangipane before such as Rhubarb Bakewell TartPear and Blackberry Frangipane Tart and most recently the Belleau Kitchen Rhubarb Frangipane Tart.

I can certainly recommend this recipe, it was quick, easy and very satisfying, especially served warm with a big scoop of Madagascar Vanilla Icecream.

As well as being my Dish of the Month, I am also entering this for Tea Time Treats as this month's theme is Fresh Fruit.   Tea Time Treats is a monthly blogging event that showcases treats from our favourite meal of the day: teatime! Hosted alternate months by Karen from Lavender and Lovage and Kate from What Kate Baked. 
Karen is hosting this month and you can read all about in her blog post Fresh Fruit Treats.

Frangipane also begins with F so fits with the Alphabakes Challenge run by Ros at The more than occasional baker and Caroline at Caroline Makes.

This month Sue at A little bit of Heaven on a Plate is hosting Dish of the Month.

 If you would like to take part, then please:
  • Make a Dish of the Month from ANY recipe by Nigel Slater

  • If you use twitter, tweet your post with @serialcrafter or @Heavenona_plate and #DishoftheMonth and we will re-tweet it to our followers. 
  • If you own The kitchen diaries II please do not publish the recipes on your blog without permission, they are copyright.
  • If you are using recipes from the BBC Food website, please link to the recipe on BBC Food rather than publishing the recipe.  Likewise recipes on the Guardian Lifestyle website.
  • One entry per blog.
  • Recipes must be added to the linky by the 28th of each month.

Thanks for sharing these Janice, they look super. Such a pretty way to present Frangipane I think I like it more than the usual slices of a larger tart.

Do you have the recipe for the Cherry Frangipane Ramekins...I couldn't locate it anywhere on your site.

Thanks Nazima.
Gemma - the recipe is from The Kitchen Diaries 2 by Nigel Slater and is copyright. I've linked to other similar Frangipane recipes on my blog, just make the Frangipane and bake inn buttered ramekins, adding some stoned cherries on top, it's that simple. Or you may be tempted to buy Nigel's book!

LOVELY recipe and a very seasonal entry for Tea Time Treats too, thanks! Karen

Oh yes please - they look fantastic Janice. Nice idea to put them in the ramekin dishes.

Lovely -not sure I've ever eaten frangipane, that will have to change! Thanks for sending these in to Alphabakes.

Oh looks so good Janice.

Perfect with a cup of tea!

I think Nigel would thoroughly approve! And as much as I love greengages, I love cherries even more. The combination of cherries and almonds is absolute perfection!

Frangipane in a ramekin - what a great idea! Thanks for entering AlphaBakes and sorry for the late comment!
