<p>We always get so excited for plum season. We love every plum related dessert and my mum makes the best plum marmalade ever, truly. We were thinking about making a plum tart for quite some time now and when we got a large box full of fresh, sweet plums last week we rolled up our sleeves and created this treat. This recipe super easy to make, it doesn't take long and you don't have to be a masterchef to get it right. Walnuts, plums and honey are a match made in heaven. It's a comfort food kind of tart that you share with your friends and family. For an extra kick serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a generous dollop of sour cream. Deliciouuuus. </p>

Blend the walnuts to a fine powder. Add sugar, pinch of salt, 1/2 vanilla bean seeds, softened butter and flour. Mix well. Transfer to a large bowl, add two eggs and honey and combine well. Place in a fridge for 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355 °F. Pit the plums and slice them thinly. Spoon the walnut filling into the prebaked tart shell, spreading it evenly over the bottom. Arrange plum slices over the walnut filling and place the tart in the oven. Bake for 50 minutes at 180°C / 355 °F or until golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy.
