How to make the perfect bakewell tart

In Bakewell itself, it's definitely a pudding, the name by which it was apparently known until the 20th century, though, as Alan Davidson's Oxford Companion to Food observes, truth be told it's "more of a tart", wherever it's baked.

Although, according to this incredibly comprehensive article on its origins, the first recorded recipe dates from 1836, its medieval precursors came in two main forms: flavoured custard tarts with candied fruit, and Lenten almond-paste tarts.

I found that for me tart fruits like raspberries work best with frangipane. Raspberries have a nice sharpness that combines perfect with the sweetness of the frangipane.

A Cake for Autumn – Spiced Pear, Blueberry & Almond Shortcake

I must say I love all the scenes shot in and around Notting Hill. We lived near Notting Hill for about four years and watching these episodes makes me hanker to go back for a visit.
