Lemon Bakewell Tart

Parish Church Bakewell

The Bakewell Tart, or indeed Pudding comes from the town of Bakewell in Derbyshire, England. There is some argument as to just who and when the first one was created. It has probably been around though since the first half of the 19th Century.

My recipe comes from my Great Aunt. I fondly remember going to my Great Aunts as a child at Christmas. The extended family would be there and she would put on a magnificent spread.  After lunch we kids would be left in the front room to play with our toys and to pester Uncle Alan who often tried to take his repose in the same room. The rest of the adults would clear the large dining table and get down to some serious card playing.

The original recipe uses raspberry jam so it stands out as a separate red layer in the tart. Using lemon curd one can’t see the jam layer quite so well, so perhaps it is not as visually appealing….. but it does taste fantastic.
