About this recipe: Bakewell tarts are always warmly received in our household and are delicious to have on hand in the "treat tin" for afternoon tea.
My wife bought me a stand mixer so I was looking for something to bake and tried this recipe I threw all the ingredients in the bowl and set it going on setting 1 for about a minute then increased the speed to 6 for a further 4 minutes and it creamed everything great. I made my own sweet pastry and blind baked it before lining the bottom with jam . I didn't use any icing I just sprinkled the top with flaked almonds. It says to bake for 40 minutes but it took almost an hour before mine was done. My son called in for tea after work and asked for some, it was still a bit warm when I sliced it for him and he says it is the best Bakewell tart he's ever had. Praise indeed and it looks like I will be baking it again soon - 30 Nov 2015
