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.
I can't believe I almost forgot to create and post this recipe today. I guess that will happen with only 3 hours of sleep in a 40 hour span of time. After running all night I arrived home, made the boys waffles, showered and crawled into bed from 900 to 1200. I couldn't sleep any longer! I wanted to play croquet and swim in the pool with the family. I couldn't stay in bed. The sun came out, we played..the rain came back so I watched The Dark Knight..and looked at the calendar to see what was up for tomorrow. Before I looked at tomorrow I saw today. OH NO! The tart/pudding recipe I hadn't yet made.
Luckily this was an easy recipe to put together. I chose to make a lemon curd for the filling, I used lemon zest and juice in the tart crust and topping.
Steve loves lemon/almond flavoring. The crust has crushed almonds and there are almonds on the top layer. He had a slice with ice cream and declared it delicious. I don't care for lemon so I will pass.
Now, I will go to sleep.
Jasmine has the recipe posted on her blog.
