Tart

Tart

taken as a snack or a pudding

a buttery biscuit base inlaid with

rich fruit jam in its centre

totally tasty at tea time

 

twist on the tale ?

a bake well places an almond sponge

right on top of the fruity bit

tempting nevertheless

Razzamatazz

Raspberry donuts – that’s what reminds me of you

A right zesty colour, bursting with notes of

Sharp pink and red – but unlike your strawberry cousin, notes of

Purple, which sing out in the pudding bowl

Best in a jam. in a pudding or ice cream, some will

Even eat it in a yogurt

Real connoisseurs eat you tween almond sponge and base in a

Right royal bakewell tart, but notes are played

Year on year when you’re served up on toast in jam

 

razzmatazz

Reactions to your

Appearance in gardens – are amazing – flying insects

Zipping around the garden for a chance to grab your

Zesty Nectar

Maybe its your fragrance and colour you relase

As they circle and glide around your petals

To get to that tasty nectar

Aiming sharp towards the target

Zoned towards the prize

Zipping into your flower head for their reward

Almond

Admittedly, I like Almonds….

Like – when they’re scattered liberally over a bakewell sponge or

Made in to powder, and mixed with other ingredients for marzipan

Overall, the taste is really great in a cake

Nutty and sweet – from the seed that escapes from that

Delicately pitted light brown casing

Some would say – they’re delicious! (especially in chocolate!)

Cake

Pour Some Sugar on Me

I’ll freely admit – I have a bit of a sweet tooth..

French Doughnut
Covered in Icing and Filled in with Custard – An ideal treat

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 ?

Bakewell

Brought to the fore by that Derbyshire town

Almonds in abundance in that wonderful spongey tart

Kept in the bakers front window

Everyone appreciates its fullsome flavour

When its brought out at afternoon tea

Each slice full of almonds and

Lashings of raspberry jam and topped with a

Layer of tasty icing
