Ingredients for Cannabis-Infused Plum Custard Tart Recipe

Step 1: Make Infused Whipping Cream



  • 1 cup whipping cream (also called heavy or 35% cream)
  • 1 gram or more of cannabis


  1. Heat the Buds

As in most weed recipes, start by heating - i.e. “decarbing” your weed. Decarboxylation is a scientific term for heating your cannabis to activate its psychoactive potential. It’s simpler than it sounds.

  • Preheat your oven to 245ºF
  • Remove flowers but don’t discard the stems; they make excellent tea.
  • Place the buds on a non-stick tray.
  • Set the timer for 35 minutes and leave your cannabis buds to bake. Then let them cool for another hour. 
  1. Grind the Decarbed Buds
  1. Infuse the Cream
  • Combine the decarbed cannabis and cream in a saucepan. Place over low heat.
  • Simmer for 30 minutes, being careful not to let the cream burn
  • Strain the infused cream using cheesecloth, a colander or a coffee filter,  into a clean glass jar
  • Cool and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Step 2: Pat-In Sweet Pastry:

  • In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and cornstarch.
  • Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until mixture clumps together. 
  • With floured hands, press evenly into 9-inch (23 cm) round tart pan with a removable bottom. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.

Step 3: Fill and Bake

  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C)
  • Arrange plums, cut side up and slightly overlapping, in a circular pattern over pastry.
  • Sprinkle with all but 1 tbsp of the sugar.
  • Bake tart in centre of oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until plums are softened.
  • Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together cream, egg yolks, vanilla and remaining sugar; pour over fruit.
  • Bake tart for 25 to 30 minutes longer or until set, golden and knife inserted in centre of filling comes out clean. 
  • Let cool before eating. Refrigerate after three hours.
