Preheat oven to 200°C.

Brush a layer of pastry with butter. Cover with another layer. Repeat until you have four layers. Line a baking tin with the pastry and trim the edges to fit.

Cover with a piece of baking paper and then place baking beans onto the paper.

Bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and remove the paper and beans. Bake for a further five minutes, until crisp.

Put the plums onto a baking tray and sprinkle with the sugar and cardamom. Drizzle with a little melted butter. Bake for 15 minutes, or until some of the juices begin to run. Remove from the oven. Cool.

Mix a third of the berries and the flesh of two of the plums and the honey into the yoghurt. Spoon into the pastry case. Top with the remaining fruit and sprinkle with the almonds. Serve immediately while the pastry is still crisp.

Tip of the day

White pepper
Use white pepper when making pale, creamy sauces or clear stock because it won't discolour the sauce.
