I’m more of a savory than a sweet kind of cook. I was inspired to make this sweet tart by the British Pie week, that’s been trending on Twitter. Before you get too confused though, the Finnish name for this kind of thing is a ‘pie’, which is why I thought of making it, before properly considering that in fact it’s more of a tart. I would however say pies and tarts are cousins, and I think this is a good enough entry to the pie week from me. It’s very easy and simple to make, and you can easily change the filling ingredients to your taste.
1 dl sugar
2 dl plain flour
2 dl porridge oats
2 tsp baking powder
200g rhubarb (about 4 stalks, depending on size)
1 tbsp sugar
2 dl crème fraiche
1. Mix all the pastry ingredients together. Spread the mixture at the bottom and sides of your dish.
2. Chop the rhubarb and strawberries into small pieces. Pour over the pastry, to fill the tart / pie. Sprinkle the sugar on top.
3. Mix the egg with the crème fraiche. Pour the mixture over the strawberries and rhubarb.
4. Heat the oven to 200°C / 390°F. Place the tart into the preheated oven, and bake for 30 minutes.
