    I can’t wait to try this recipe. Would you be so kind to confirm if you pre-bake the base before adding the jam and topping, or is everything “raw” when the tart goes into the oven? I ask this because you mention preheating the oven once at 170 C for the base, and again to 160 C for the topping.
