TWD - Steph’s Bakewell Tart


What is a Bakewell Tart, you might ask.  Apparently it all began in Derbyshire, England.  I had no idea it was popular with The Great British Baking Show.  This classic combines a buttery shortcrust pastry with a filling of raspberry jam, (or in my case blackberry jam), topped with an almond spongecake and almond slices. I think there are probably many different versions of the Bakewell.

On my first attempt, my crust totally fell apart in the oven.  At that point, I went to plan b and made four mini tarts.  These worked perfectly for us.  I have a very thin layer of the jam and wish I had used a bit more.  We enjoyed this and it was a breeze to put together.

Great idea to make small tarts, I found them a way to sweet for my palate, so I skipped it this week

Love your mini tarts and your jam substitution. I substituted mine with strawberry. Glad I wasn't the only one to make changes.

ooh I love your little mini. I also made some changes here and there too; mostly because I wanted to use what we had in our pantry. Great photos :)
