Daring Bakers June - Better Late than Never!


I must apologise for the lateness of my Daring Bakers challenge for June! The funny part is that I actually made the challenge a few weeks ago! But I was in Christchurch over the weekend and while I had every good intention of posting on my sister’s computer, time got away on me. This posting is also going to be a bit brief!



The June Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Jasmine of Confessions of a Cardamom Addict and Annemarie of Ambrosia and Nectar. They chose a Traditional (UK) Bakewell Tart... er... pudding that was inspired by a rich baking history dating back to the 1800's in England.

I have always wanted to make a bakewell tart ever since I tried a mini bakewell tart in a small village in yorkshire. Bakewell tart is a tart filled with jam (traditionally raspberry I think), a frangipane (ground almond mixture) and then topped with flaked almonds. I used my own home made peach and vanilla jam to fill the tart. The peach jam went really with the almond frangipane filling. We had the tart at a dinner party with friends in early June and I served it with the honey peach ice cream I made for the TWD challenge a few weeks ago – a perfect combination.



I really loved this tart and loved the opportunity to make it! See if the other Daring Bakers loved it here.

Great combination! I wish I would have made the ice cream and tart at the same time as well. Your tart looks scrumptious.

We loved it too - I'd never had a bakewell tart, even though I had heard of it. A lovely dessert, and I really like the jam that you chose.

Jacque said...

Mmm, sounds like the perfect dessert.... I would have been happy skipping dinner and going straight to dessert.

I can see where peach would taste good in a Bakewell tart. Good call!

Your tart looks lovely. And the vanilla peach jam sounds delicious! Making jam is one thing I haven't tried.
