Bakewell Tart is a popular dessert in England. It’s made with raspberries and flaked almonds, in shortcrust pastry. Make your own palm-oil-free pastry and keep fresh dough away from pets. Try this recipe from Lazy Cat Kitchen.
It’s reported that the tart was invented in a pub in the town of Derbyshire, although others say the dates don’t match. However, what is believed is that a chef mixed up instructions and instead of putting the almond paste into the batter, put the almonds on top, and a new dessert was born. Today most add flaked almonds on top and sometimes add powdered sugar (a good brand is Suma, find it in health stores).
