Bakewell Tart

Bakewell Tart

A real Bakewell Tart recipe from Around Britain cookbook.

Bakewell Tart


Puff pastry 250g (9oz), thawed if frozen

Raspberry jam 75g (3oz)

Ground almonds 110g (4oz)

Caster sugar 110g (4oz)

Butter 50g (2oz), softened

Eggs 3, beaten

Almond essence ¼ tsp



Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6 and place a baking tray in the oven. On a lightly floured surface, roll the pastry into a square large enough to line a buttered 900ml (1½ pint) shallow pie dish.


Transfer the pastry to the pie dish and trim off any excess. Knock up the pastry edge with a knife so the pastry layers rise well during baking. Brush the base of the pastry case with the jam and chill while making the filling.


In a large bowl, beat the almonds with the sugar, butter, eggs and almond essence. Remove the case from the fridge and spoon the mixture on top of the jam. Smooth the top.


Place the tart on the hot baking tray and bake in the oven for 30–35 minutes, until the filling has set. Serve hot with custard or cold with cream.
