I’ll freely admit – I have a bit of a sweet tooth..
Ice Buns, Chocolate Eclairs, Apple Pies, Chocolate Pudding – I’ll try the lot – if its a pie its even better with custard
However – My favourite pudding is Bakewell Tart
A Sweet Tartlet Base with Thick Raspberry Jam at its base and covered in an Almond Cake or sponge. Really nice pudding that finishes off a meal wonderfully…you could add cream or custard but I like it as it is. Full of almonds and lovely and moist
There are those who prefer the cherry variation of the classic – this is on sale from a well known baker, and covers the top of his tarts with fondant icing. Decoration is nice to look at – but when in Bakewell, one sticks to tradition – abandoning the fondant…leaves the eater with only one conundrum – Custard or Cream ?
