Despite the name - Pasta flora - this is not a pasta dish! Pasta flora is actually a well loved Greek jam tart, made with whatever jam you fancy. Greeks aren't big on breakfast, but a slice of this is a favourite mid-morning. Instead of the vanilla, you can use brandy for an authentic Greek touch. Jams that work well for pasta flora? Try apricot, plum, strawberry or fig for starters!
Using warmly spiced, zesty pastry for this yummy tart transforms an old favourite into a modern treat.
