Step 3: Fold the ground almonds and flour into the mixture with a spatula. Don't forget to lick it!
Step 4: Heat your oven to gas mark 4, 180 degrees, 160 degrees fan.
Step 5: Spoon the frangipane into the pastry base, smoothing the surface. Half, pit and then slice the plums into eighths. Then arrange the plum slices, slightly overlapping, over the top, pressing slightly into the frangipane. I think I could have actually used more plum slices because they do shrink a little once baked, so don't hesitate to really pack them in! I also think it might be good to sprinkle some sliced almonds on top before baking - I think I'll do this next time to add some crunch.
Tesco, which where I found this recipe!

I'm now in the depths of a five month trial, and Greece has become a distant memory. Unbelievably, we were sunning ourselves in paradise just six weeks ago. Time is a funny thing. I often find myself scrolling through my calendar and counting back how many weeks it was since...I had a curry in Brick Lane...I went to an art exhibition...I cut my hair...and I'm always surprised at how fast time goes. Then when I think back to holidays, they always seem so far away. I think there is only one answer to this conundrum: more holidays...
