      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31).

This recipe makes a large tart so you can either use a deep (5cm) tart tin 20cm round or a larger shallow tin. If using the shallow tin I suggest reducing the cooking time for the filling by 5-10 min.

You could replace the cherries with raspberries for an alternative topping.
