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.
I love the minis–very cute. =) Glad you decided to make this one after all.
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.
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.
Love your mini tarts! The gooseberries look like little gems sitting on top. Beautiful job!
Minis were a great idea. I haven’t seen fresh gooseberries in years – you must have found them at Whole Foods!
Well those look fabulous! Just not fair that we can’t hit a key on the keyboard and one would instantly appear before me to eat!
Your little tarts look great! I’m not a member of the Daring Bakers, but I really want to try this recipe sometime soon!
I love your mini tarts. too cute!
Wow..look so adorable….I could eat the screen 😉
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 🙂
What wonderful tarts and what great pixs you have done for this challenge. Great work bravo and cheers from Audax in Australia.

Well done, and the mini tarts are really cute . Also the jam flavour sounds yummy and the pictures are fantastic.
These look amazing. Your co-workers are lucky people! Great photos!
Your tarts look so yummy! I love the minis, wish I had done mine that way!
These all look fantastic. You are so talented!
Those little mini Bakewell tarts look absolutely divine.
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 🙂
Those are beautiful and they look so good! I have to add these to my baking que (which is getting longer and longer…)
These are beautiful! So pretty!
Your tiny little minis look so great! I am glad to see they turn out so nicely. I think I am going to make them this way next time.
Glad you found a good way to use those gooseberries! The tartlets look amazing!
Well done for making them on such short notice then..! I love your mini’s. I also opted for making smaller ones. Always better then a large version, at least in my experience.
Really lovely, and cute at the same time! That dusting of powdered sugar makes them look like delicious snow-covered mountains. 🙂
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.

Lucky coworkers! Those look absolutely adorable, so I’m glad you were guilted into making them 🙂
I made mini tarts too, they were so cute.
