BWD: Stephanie’s Bakewell Tart

Stephanie’s Bakewell Tart

This week’s adventure in baking is a tart! But not just an ordinary tart, Stephanie’s Bakewell Tart. It has a tart shell crust (I cheated and used a store bought crust), a rounded cup of raspberry jam, and a almond flour cake top. The sliced almonds are optional and so is the glaze.

A few months ago Koegel came to my area. My mom asked me to go get her some hot dogs from there because they are her favorite. While I was in line I saw they had Amish made jam from Michigan. It happened to be the town my grandparents were from so when I saw that I almost burst into tears right there in the hot dog line. Was it from the Amish farm across the road from my grandparents? I don’t know, but I did know I wanted to use it for something special. Along came this tart and wa-lah.

We’ve already established that my hubs doesn’t like cooked fruit. I didn’t tell him anything about this tart except that it was from Baking with Dorie. I pulled it out of the oven and he said “that smells like cooked fruit”. Stinker.

I liked this tart, my son liked it. I took it to share with friends at dinner last night. If you would like to see how other bakers liked this tart check out Tuesdays with Dorie!

  1. Does not like cooked fruit…I’m in line to have his share…that is so interesting. Just across the board like that, no cooked fruit? Surely he gave in and had some of your lovely tart? It looks wonderful.
