Cherry Bakewell Tart Recipe - a classic British tart; top a shortcrust pastry case with cherry jam, spoon over a layer of frangipane and finish with flaked almonds and a generous drizzle of simple white icing. And it's not as difficult as it looks!
Deliciously rich and dark but not too sweet, this is a properly luxurious pudding ideal for a special occasion. If you back yourself in the pastry stakes, do make the chocolate pastry; alternatively, a simple sweet shortcrust works well.
This delicious recipe is taken from Great British Bake Off 2014 Finalist, Luis Troyano’s recipe book; ‘Bake it Great’, published by Pavilion. “The Bakewell tart got me into baking. I live fairly close to Bakewell in the Peak District and would frequently take a visit there to stock up on the famous tarts, as well as the lesser-known Bakewell pudding.
