Hands Up! Who Likes Bakewell Tarts?

I love Bakewell Tarts, yet l canít stand marzipan.
I made the ones pictured at midnight last night because l didnít have time in the day! They were the second batch from the mixture l made on Sunday.
I make the pastry and the sponge mixture but l only use half and keep the rest in the fridge. I make 9 Bakewell Tarts at a time, as 18 is too many! They also taste nicer when fresh.
These donít look great as l made them quick and browned them too much and the jam started to escape!
They taste lovely though!

It set me wondering. We can access recipes via books, television and the internet but if there were no televisions or radios back then and travel was really only for gentry. How did these regional recipes get passed on to other areas?

I even took a detour to buy the real tarts in Bakewell when we were going to visit my Bro & S-I-L, if we lived nearer I'd buy them often. I think the genuine Bakewell tarts recipe is secret.
They are actually called puddings & are different to the tarts.

I love Bakewell tarts and I'm not fussy either but there does seem to be various types. There's the ones by Mr Kipling, then there's the bigger ones with icing on, then there's Art's. Art's Look nicest but I don't think there are enough to go round.

Re: Hands Up! Who Likes Bakewell Tarts?

I do like Bakewell Tarts.


And yes, I must admit that out of all the processed cakes on the shelves, the ones I am a bit addicted to are Mr. Kipling's Trifle Bakewells.


They aren't true bakewells, but they are, for some reason, rather moreish, and a carton of 6 doesn't last very long.

In fact, I'm ashamed to say that I bought a pack at lunchtime today, and there aren't any left now.

They are quite small, though.



A nice homemade Bakewell tart with custard is yummy, though!
