1
Prepare the creme patissiere. Heat the milk in a pan until just boiling. In a bowl, use the hand blender to whisk together the egg yolks, plain flour and caster sugar. Pour the hot milk into the eggs/flour mixture and continue whisking. Pour the entire mixture back into the pan and cook over medium heat while stirring constantly. The mixture should thicken as it just comes to a boil.
2
Remove the creme from the heat and transfer to a bowl to cool. Sprinkle a little icing sugar to stop a skin from forming on the surface of the creme. Leave to cool.
3
In a bowl, pass the jam through a sieve to make it smooth. Transfer the apricot jam to a saucepan and add 2 tablespoons of water. Stir and heat until fully combined. Leave to cool.
4
To assemble the fruit tart, spoon a little of the cooled creme patissiere into the tart shell. Arrange your desired fruits on top and brush lightly with the cooled apricot jam.

Top-Tip

Allow the fruit tart to chill a bit in the refrigerator before serving to ensure that the filling and toppings are set and will not run.
