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.
