Plum Crumb Tarte

Is it a cake or a tarte? This simple, moist and fabulous dessert can be either!


11/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
3 tbsp white sugar
11/2 tsp cinnamon
11/2 sticks salted butter, melted and cooled
1 – 11/2 cups New Canaan Farms Texas Red Plum Jam

Vanilla Ice Cream


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Lightly grease an 8″ round metal tarte pan (with a removable bottom)
  • Mix together your dry ingredients: flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut in the butter and mix in with your fingers until you get a crumbly mixture
  • Add half of the mixture to the base of the pan, and top with half of the plum jam, dolloping it in as best you can (it’s pretty much impossible to spread evenly!)
  • Top with the remaining crumb mixture, then dollop in the remaining jam
  • Bake for 30 minutes until the jam is bubbly and the crumb mixture lightly browned
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before cutting into slices while still in the pan
  • Serve while still slightly warm, with vanilla ice cream

Refund Policy

We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and stand by every product we ship to our customers. Please contact us for any product or shipment

We do not accept returns of product we have shipped. However, we have a limited 15-day refund policy, which means you have 15 days after receiving your item to request a refund or exchange if the product we shipped to you is defective, damaged or not what was ordered. Please note that refund requests will need to include a description of the defective product with photos.

We will notify you once we’ve received your refund request and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be refunded on your original payment method within 10 business days. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too. If more than 15 business days have passed since we’ve approved your return, please get in touch with us so that we can help you find out what’s going on

Shipping & Refunds

For orders over $60, we offer free ground shipping to a single delivery physical address in the contiguous United States (shipping to PO Boxes incurs a $5 surcharge). For all shipping, we use the best solution available for your address, and get your order out as fast as we can. We will never take longer than 3 business days to process your order and prepare it for shipment, and if you pay the premium for overnight shipment we strive (but do not guarantee) to prepare it and put it in the carrier’s hands within 24 hours. Very occasionally, we may experience delays due to supply chain constraints or other forces beyond our control. If we are not able to ship your order within five days of receipt, we will contact you to explain the timeline and offer you a refund if you prefer. Unfortunately, we are unable to hold individual orders for future ship dates.

We also provide the ability to break your order into multiple shipments and enter individual shipping addresses for those.  Please note that the free shipping offer applies to each individual address, so you would need to spend more than the minimum in each separate shipment to qualify for free shipping.

If you have any questions or concerns about your order, a shipment, or a refund, we encourage you to call or email so we can handle it personally for you!
