Bakewell Tart

Bakewell Tart

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.
