Bakewell Tart

Recently dragonlife asked me about an English speciality, Bakewell Tart.

This is a kind of cake, or rather a pastry, which originated in the town of Bakewell in Derbyshire, in central England.

The local people call it Bakewell Pudding and it is an almond-flavoured pastry with a small layer of raspberry jam inside. For a topping it can often be seen with icing sugar and a small cherry, but the locals like it with a few dollops of fresh cream, and so do I.

It is especially nice when warm, straight out of the oven.
