Blackberry, Browned Butter, and Almond Tart Recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups (12 oz.) unsalted butter, plus more for greasing pan

  • 8 large egg whites

  • 3 1/4 cups unsifted powdered sugar, plus more for dusting

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour

  • 1 cup plus 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour, divided, plus more for pan

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blackberries


Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease and flour a 12-inch round tart pan with removable bottom; place tart pan on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high, and cook, stirring often, until butter releases a nutty aroma and milk solids are golden brown, about 8 minutes. Immediately transfer butter to a bowl; cool slightly, about 10 minutes.

Step 2

Beat egg whites with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer on medium speed until frothy, about 30 seconds. Gradually add powdered sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Gradually add almond flour and 1 cup of the all-purpose flour; beat on medium-low speed until incorporated. Add vanilla bean paste and browned butter; beat on medium-low speed until incorporated. Spread batter in prepared pan. Toss blackberries with remaining 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, and sprinkle over batter.

Step 3

Bake in preheated oven until golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, 42 to 45 minutes. Cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes. Remove sides of pan, and cool 30 more minutes. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
