    Seriously Chocolatey almond and lemon no flour tart

    No flour is used in this delicious, slightly lemony tart; important in this day and age, as many people are wheat intolerant; but everyone I believe would love to eat this utterly wonderful tart. Fairly easy to make, eat with or without some compot. Can be eaten warm/cold

    What makes it the ultimate summer Seriously From Waitrose dessert?

    It is fresh and light, can be eaten with or without compot, is lovely with coffee or tea, it is truly delicious. Adults and children will enjoy it equally. It can be sold in individual portions of course and would be a great hit!!
