Fresh Fruit Slice

This Fresh Fruit Slice is a lovely and very easy dessert to make – perfect for taking to a BBQ along as you have someone to hold it in the car 😉

Have a slice and let me have your comments – I love to receive your comments

Thanks Clare

Ingredients

  • Puff Pastry Sheet – I use the ready rolled from Jus-rol (EPLS :-) )
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 150g Chocolate, milk or plain
  • 4 tablespoons ready made custard
  • 1 nectarine, sliced
  • handful grapes – seedless and halved
  • 1/2 punnet strawberry, washed and sliced
  • (really whatever fruit you want)
  • 2 tablespoons Apricot Jam

Preparation Method

  1. Preheat oven 220c/ 450F / gas 7 (200c fan assisted)
  2. Roll out or unroll the puff pastry rectangle on a piece of greaseproof paper (helps you to lift onto baking tray)
  3. Cut the edge of each side and use this to build up an edge, using milk secure the edge (see pic)
  4. Using a fork dock the pastry all over
  5. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes until golden brown – keep you eye on it
  6. Remove from oven and leave to cool on a wire rack – transfer to serving plate now
  7. Melt you chocolate in a bowl over a pan of hot water
  8. Brush a thin layer of chocolate over the pastry base – leave to set
  9. Then spoon the custard on spreading to the edges with a knife – thin layer
  10. Layer you fruits however you want!
  11. Warm apricot jam in microwave and brush over the top of the slice using a pastry brush, makes it nice and glossy
  12. You can lace with chocolate piping if you’re feeling fancy or leave plain
  13. Serve and enjoy
