Bakewell Tart

I absolutely love a cake but I love a cake that’s lovely with a cup of tea but also as dessert and for me, Bakewell Tart pretty much sums that up. The combination of jam, cake and almond work so well together and it’s a classic bake for a reason – if you want to try something new, bake this wonderful tart.

You can use homemade pastry or for convenience buy a ready made pastry case – the choice is yours.
