Final Notes for the French Cherry Tart Recipe

➡️ Fruit tart cake is one of my favorite cakes. As a result, I make such desserts quite often, especially during the summer when fresh fruit is available in large quantities. However, fruit tarts can also be prepared with frozen or canned fruit, so I bake fruit tarts all year round.

➡️ Some of the fruits I use to make tarts include pineapple, peaches, raspberries, blueberries, and, of course, cherries. Black cherries are best when it comes to making a cake with this summer fruit, but other types of cherries can be used too. In addition to fresh fruit, frozen or canned cherries are also good for the French tart recipe.

➡️ My black cherry tart cake is based on a classic French tart recipe. You can make a traditional French-style tart crust by following the recipe I recommend. However, tart bases from the bakery or store can be used instead if you do not have the time to make a tart shell at home.

➡️ Even though I prefer to make the base for my tarts, sometimes I also use the commercial version when I have to make a lot of cakes and I don’t have enough time to bake the base at home.

➡️ As for the cream, the classic cherry tart is made with French vanilla cream. This takes some time and quite a bit of experience, so I replaced it with a simple vanilla pudding that goes very well with the sweet taste of black cherries, their combination results in a very delicious cherry pie.

➡️ This homemade cake recipe is very versatile, as you can replace black cherries with other fruits such as sour cherries, raspberries, strawberries, and so on.

➡️ In conclusion, using this fruit tart recipe, you can make an excellent dessert in a very short time and with just a few ingredients. Try this recipe once and you will probably use it several times this summer!
