steph's bakewell tart

My name is Steph and this is my tart, but I am not the Steph behind this recipe for Steph’s Bakewell Tart. A Bakewell is a classic British tart (any GBB fans out there?), with a layer of raspberry jam hiding under cakey almond cream, all baked together in a shortcrust pastry case. This particular version comes from Dorie’s friend, Stephanie, in Paris, who got it from her English mum. I’ve made Bakewell tarts before…first here years ago, and several times since, too. I like the combo of almonds and raspberries a lot, but you can use any jam you want. This is a pretty easy tart to put together, as you can make the components ahead of time, and of course you can buy the jam. Once baked, a drizzle of icing on the top is just, well, the icing on the cake (or tart)!

If you don’t have the book Baking with Dorie: Sweet, Salty & Simple by Dorie Greenspan yet, get it and join us as we bake through it every second and fourth Tuesdays! Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and all the other participation deets over on Tuesdays with Dorie!

  1. Hello Steph, even it’s not your tart, your tart looks beautiful

  2. Yours is (as always) perfection!

  3. I was absolutely certain this was your tart before I read the blurb in the book. You know, like all of Mary’s recipes in the books. 🙂 It really is beautiful, your photos both then and now do it justice. Raspberries and Almonds should be married, they are such a great couple.

  4. I love your jumble of tart slices.

  5. LOL – love your opening statement. This was a good tart.

  6. So funny…I feel like in this group you get the credit for the tart haha…I thought of you each time I looked at the recipe or baked. Yours looks absolutely perfect!

  7. When I first got the cookbook I was wondering if it was you:) This was my first time making this kind of tart but it won’t be my last. Yum.
