A German bakes British: Bakewell Tart

It seems there is a world wide problem: The traditional dishes are dying out. I miss the „Kieler Semmel“ from Bäckerei Koll* or the „Kieler Franzbrötchen“ which is different from the one 100 km south in Hamburg.

Andrew from spittonextra 03.11.2019 ** started a-one-off blog event 03.11.2019 for the Bakewell Tart

The Independent reports according to the The Bakewell Tart & Coffee House that the recipe for the Bakewell tart

Bakewell Tart

Bakewell Tart

was a „mistake“ from an unexperienced cook of the White Horse Inn in Bakewell. She made a tart instead of a pudding. The ingredients butter, sugar, eggs, almonds and strawberry jam are unsuitable to lose weight, but sound very yummy.

Billions of kalories to die for!

1. Combine the flour and salt in a large bowl. Rub in the butter
until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

2. Stir in enough iced water to bring the mixture together into a
smooth dough. Roll the pastry out to line a 23 cm tart tin and chill
for 30 minutes, or until required.

3. Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6. Spread a layer of jam generously
over the tart base.

4. Melt the butter and continue to heat until it smells nutty.

5. Whisk together the sugar, ground almonds, egg yolks, egg whites
and almond extract.

6. Pour in the hot butter and whisk until smooth.

7. Spoon the mixture over the jam.

8. Transfer the tart to the oven and bake for about 30 minutes,
until lightly browned and just set, scattering the flaked almonds
over the tart after 25 minutes so that they get a chance to brown

9. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for about 20 minutes.
Serve warm with fresh cream.
