Last night for desert, I had a piece of Bakewell Tart (or did I have a bakewell tart? who knows….). I didn’t hear what the waitress said so I asked her what she said. She had been to the US and she took the time to explain what it was. She said, “it’s very English.” I said why not…I’ll try it then. I did and it was good.
What is it? It is a pastry–pie crust–some jam/jelly, and a sponge (kind of like a falvored angel food cake thing). The filling tasted like almonds. It was served warm. With vanilla ice cream, it was good.
