Daring Bakers: Bakewell Tart

I had never heard of this dessert before this Daring Bakers challenge.  After reading the recipe I knew it would be delicious.  A shortbread-like crust, a layer of jam topped with an almond filling and baked until golden topped with cream.  How can this combination NOT be delicious?  It was, by the way, delicious.


The June Daring Bakers challenge was hosted by Jasmine of Confessions of a Cardamom Addict and Annemarie of Ambrosia and Nectar. They chose a Traditional (UK) Bakewell Tart… er… pudding that was inspired by a rich baking history dating back to the 1800’s in England.
