Manchester Tart Recipe

Updated on February 16, 2015

This is another of my mums great recipes. Yes I always steal them off her!

I'm not usually much of a custard fan but paired with the coconut, jam and bananas it tastes so yummy! It is a really simple recipe, as we use frozen pastry but you could make your own if you feel confident making your own shortcrust pastry.

It is also pretty cheap to make and would be great for a kids party if their not a fan of sponge.
