{db}Bakewell Tart

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.

I wasn’t going to bake the tart. I just had too much on my plate (metaphorically and literally). After seeing the tarts pop up all over the internet yesterday and seeing how good and delicious they looked, I decided to jump on the baking bandwagon.

Instead of baking one big tart, I baked 12 cupcake-sized tartlets (better to take to work that way) using a muffin pan. I topped the tart with powdered sugar and a mix of blueberries and gooseberries.

All packed-up for work

  1. Those look really cute! Those gooseberries look really cool. I’ve never had them before. I don’t think I’ve ever seen them sold either.

  2. I love your mini tarts – they look delicious! I’d give my eye-teeth to find some gooseberries; I’ve come across recipes that call for them, and I don’t think there’s a close substitute.

  3. When I saw your tarts at the DBK, I was wowed! They are stunning, as are the photos. Love the gooseberry, and your presentation is awesome :)

  4. i’m glad you decided to go for the bakewell, even if it was late :) it’s definitely worth the wait and your pictures came out gorgeous! i’m jealous since mine came out tasty but would not photograph well for the life of me. oh well, yours makes me happy :)

  5. Oh wow! Your bakewells are so cute, and I love the gooseberries and blueberries dusted with icing sugar on top. So glad that you were tempted and made these – you did a fab job.
