Daring Bakers June 2009: Bakewell Tart
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 admit, I had a lot of fun with this. I hated doing the shortcrust pastry, as always. I just can't seem to roll out pastry, no matter what. It doesn't matter though, because I don't much like eating it, either. I make pies sometimes, but they're really not my favorite thing to eat. However, I really, really liked the filling on this one, so I was quite happy to make it anyway!
I used a homemade strawberry-rhubarb jam that I dug up from a dark corner of my freezer - I can't really tell you a recipe for it, but I don't think it was very complicated... (Mostly strawberries, a little rhubarb and vanilla, and a bit of jam sugar, I bet.)
I will most definitely post the recipe for this tart eventually, as it's something I'll be doing again, but since my tiny chef wants my attention now, that will have to wait for another day!
You can find the recipe here, the blogroll here, and the discussion forums - open to everyone! - here.
