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.
Time for another DB Challenge (#2 for me)
I don’t have a lot of time to make this post and I think it will be going up a day late ( have to double check the rules). In fact. as I ame wrigtigng this it is late at night and I am falling asleep, writing this with my eyes closed!
But tomorrow I am baking ciabatta in the mroning and will not have time to write a decent post. I will just be uploading photos and throwing it on there.
So I was pretty excited about this challenge because I had been considering doing a bakewelll tart from one of Jamie Oliver’s cookbooks bor a while. I’ve never made jam before and with school ending I knew that this probably wasn’t the time totry. Later in the summer I am plannign on making strawberry jam. Once the weather he ats up and the strawberries have more falvour. Instead, I decided to buy a nice expensive jam for this tart as it is a big focus in the whole thing. In the end I got Greave’s Rhubarb Raspberry Jam, delicious!
The recipe was not hard to put together, especially since I had made frangipan for several previous recipes. I wasn’t sure if the frangipan should be refrigerated after it was prepared so I didn’t do so, and I think that was a mistake because my final product was nice and tight on the outside, but very oozy on the inside.
Luckily, as I said before, my family isn’t too picky on the issue and the pie was almost gone in a matter of 10 minutes. I tried some and loved it! I hope I get another chance to try it with my own jam!
Sorry again for the short post, but I am just waiting for my poolish (for ciabatta) to ferment and then it’s sleeptime!
woops, changed my mind! I am posting this now but will update it tomorrow with pictures!
