Blackberry tart recipe

I once had way too many fresh blackberries (and they were not even that sweet), and this blackberry tart was a perfect recipe to use them all to bring out the best in berries! The tart turned great, with fresh berries bursting in color and flavor in all of their glory, and with the lemon zest adding just the right amount of “oomph”.

This blackberry tart becomes even more exceptional when served warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Blackberry tart recipe

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

Blackberry tart recipe

Ingredients

  • Tart crust (9 inch)
  • 5 cups fresh blackberries (not frozen)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cold, chopped thinly
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons white sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 Fahrenheit.
  2. Prebake the 9 inch or 9.5 inch tart crust at 400 Fahrenheit for 20 or 30 minutes according to detailed instructions here. Let the tart shell cool slightly.
  3. In a bowl, toss 4 cups of blackberries, sugar, flour, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
  4. Spoon this mixture into the cooled tart shell. Top with the remaining 1 cup of blackberries. Sprinkle 1 or 2 tablespoons white sugar over the berries, and then sprinkle thinly chopped cold butter on top, too.
  5. Place the tart on a rimmed baking sheet (to catch any juices) and bake for 30-40 minutes until filling starts to bubble. If crust starts to brown too much, place a piece of aluminum foil over the tart.
  6. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!

Notes

use 9 inch or 9.5 inch tart pan

    This tart with a scoop of ice cream….Heaven! Love it so much.

    5 cups of fresh black berries would cost quite a bit over here…
    The tart looks heavenly!

    Packed with fruit…just the way I like it! Beautiful, Julia!

    That is BEAUTIFUL Julia. The berries, pastry, natural light… just gorgeous. I love the addition of lemon zest. Oh how I wish I had too many blackberries right now (I have none. Sad face. We’re heading into winter!) x

    Thank you spring! Welcome summer!

    What a gorgeous tart – love the burst of color!

    too many blackberries? unheard of! what a great tart recipe :)

  • John@Kitchen Riffs May 21, 2014, 2:41 pm

    Funny, we were talking about how we needed some blackberries in our life just today! We had something else in mind, but this looks wonderful — just a great tart. Love the light on the top picture. Thanks for this.

    I don’t understand. Too many blackberries? How is that possible?
    One always needs more blackberries!

    Super pretty. Love it! :)

    Julia, this looks amazing. Fruit desserts are by far my favorite, especially served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You took some beautiful shots of this too!

    This tart looks divine! Would love to try it but I agree with Angie. I will have to wait until we go to countryside to pick some berries ourselves. Never had a tart warm before, sounds intriguing with ice cream.

  • Erin @ Texanerin Baking June 17, 2014, 10:37 am

    Prettiest tart ever! The pictures are gorgeous, too. :)

    I’ve seen blackberries on sale once in my life so having too many blackberries has never been a problem for me. But if I ever move to the Pacific Northwest where I hear they grow next to the road, I know what I’m making first! ;)

    Hi Julia

    Why is this tart baked at such a high temperature. Also, how long does this tart keep and should it be refrigerated.

  • Jackie July 20, 2014, 5:31 pm

    Hi

    Is this tart baked on the center rack or bottom rack of the oven.

  • Shelley September 27, 2014, 11:59 pm

    Beautifully simple recipe! Have made this with fresh blueberries and mulberries. It was a huge hit! Fresh blackberries aren’t readily available to me, but I’ve used frozen blackberries, which I defrosted overnight, removing extra juice before making recipe. Worked perfectly.

    • Julia September 30, 2014, 2:56 pm

      Shelley, thanks so much for stopping by! I am glad you liked the recipe! I never see mulberries where I live so I am jealous! I also would love to try this tart with currants but can never find them anywhere.
