PREP TIME 1.5 hours
COOK TIME 30-45 minutes



  • 155g margarine
  • 240g plain flour + a little more for rolling
  • 80g granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 20g flaxseed flour
  • 25g OGGS® Aquafaba
  • ½ tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence


  • 100g OGGS® Aquafaba
  • 80g caster sugar
  • 40ml sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 100g ground almond
  • 40g plain flour
  • 1 tsp milk


  • 2 x 400g tinned apricot halves
  • 40g apricot jam glaze
  • 30g flaked almonds


  1. Method - Preheat the oven to 170°C/160°C fan/Gas 4. Grease a 20cm tart tin with a loose base.
  2. Chop the margarine into small chunks and rub with the flour, sugar and salt to form flakes.
  3. Mix the flaxseed flour with the OGGS® Aquafaba, lemon zest and vanilla.
  4. Mix all together (by hand or in a food processor) and knead well. You should have a well-formed ball of dough. Wrap in cling film and pop in the fridge for 1/2 - 1 hour.
  5. Roll out your pastry dough between two sheets of baking paper with a dusting of flour until just under ½ cm thick. Using the rolling pin, pick up the dough and place into the tart tin. Prick the pastry with a fork.
  6. Blind bake with beans and baking paper for 30 minutes, removing the beans and paper after 20 minutes.
  7. Frangipane - whisk your OGGS® Aquafaba with an electric whisk, until you reach stiff peaks. Slowly add the caster sugar and continue mixing ‘til the mixture is thick and glossy.
  8. Add the oil, lemon zest and almond extract and whisk slowly for ten seconds.
  9. Fold the ground almond, plain flour and milk into the Aquafaba mixture, then pour into the pastry tart shell. Don’t fill it too high – allow a ½ cm space at the top.
  10. Strain the apricots from their liquid, pat dry with kitchen paper and arrange on the mixture in a circular pattern, then bake in the oven at 180°C for 45 minutes until the surface is nicely golden.
  11. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  12. Heat the apricot jam with a splash of water and brush over the tart and sprinkle your almonds on top.
