Tips for the Perfect Sultana Tart:

  1. Use high-quality ingredients: The quality of the ingredients you use will greatly affect the taste of your tart. Use good-quality unsalted butter, fresh eggs, and high-quality sultanas for the best results.
  2. Chill the dough: Chilling the dough before rolling it out will make it easier to handle and will result in a flakier crust.
  3. Roll out the dough evenly: When rolling out the dough, make sure to do it evenly so that the thickness is consistent throughout the tart.
  4. Don’t over-bake: Overbaking the tart will result in a dry crust and burnt sultanas. Keep an eye on the tart while it’s baking and take it out of the oven when the edges are golden brown.
  5. Let it cool: Letting the tart cool for a few minutes before serving will allow the filling to set and will make it easier to slice.
  6. Serve warm or at room temperature: The Sultana Tart is delicious both warm and at room temperature. Serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or at room temperature with a cup of tea.
  7. Adjust the sweetness: If you prefer a sweeter tart, add more brown sugar to the filling. If you prefer a less sweet-tart, reduce the amount of brown sugar used.

Following these tips will help you to create the perfect Sultana Tart every time. Whether you’re serving it for breakfast, dessert, or as an afternoon snack, this tart is sure to become a favorite.
