Simple 5 Ingredient Fruit Tart


A quick and simple 5 ingredient fruit tart – Flakey puff pastry topped with jam and fresh fruit, served with ice cream. Perfect if you’re in a hurry!

Catering for anyone with an allergy is hard; I know a lot of my friends over the years have worried about how and what they will cook for me, and one meal still seems to flummox the best of them – dessert! So far the desserts on my blog have catered more towards someone who has had to give up dairy – to show them the impossible is possible – however not everyone has the time or inclination to make them. Sometimes you just want a quick and simple dessert whether it’s to make for yourself or for someone else.

And so it is this dilemma that has inspired this post; here I present a simple 5 ingredient dessert, which only features 1 dairy free ingredient! How have I done this, I hear you say? Well, with one of my shop-bought-dairy-free-life-savers – pre-made puff pastry. I remember the first time I realised that most pre-made puff pastry didn’t actually have any milk in it… it was like a world of possibilities opened up in front of me. Along with the pastry, the other ingredients are jam, fruit, sugar and dairy-free ice cream.


The ingredient list might seem a bit vague but this is the beauty of it – so simple, and so versatile. The hardest thing you need to do is work out which fruit and jam combination you want to use! The flavour combinations really are endless; Pear & raspberry, apricot & rhubarb, apple & berries, peaches & orange marmalade, even banana and dairy-free chocolate spread would work!

So next time you need to bake a dairy free dessert for someone and get stuck, remember the puff pastry magic and get creative!


Serves 6. Takes 5 – 10 minutes (depending on how much preparation is needed for your fruit!), plus baking time.


  • 1 sheet pre-made, pre rolled puff pastry (check the ingredients to ensure it is dairy-free)
  • 4 tbsp jam, marmalade or spread
  • Fruit, prepared into bite size pieces (I used 1& 1/2 eating apples).
  • 2 tbsp sugar (you might need more or less depending on the tartness of the fruit)
  • Dairy free ice cream to serve (I like Swedish Glace, Vanilla)
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Line a large baking tray with grease proof paper.
  3. Cut the pre-rolled puff pastry into 3 equal sized rectangles.
  4. Score 1cm around the outside of each rectangle, being careful not to cut the pastry all the way through, and then prick the inner rectangle all over with a fork.
  5. Spread the jam evenly inside the rectangle.
  6. Neatly spread your fruit on top of the jam layer.
  7. Sprinkle the sugar all over the fruit and pastry.
  8. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes, cool slightly, then serve with ice cream.
