Daring Baker

"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.
Bakewell tarts…er…puddings combine a number of dessert elements but still let you show off your area’s seasonal fruits.
Like many regional dishes there’s no “one way” to make a Bakewell Tart…er…Pudding, but most of today’s versions fall within one of two types. The first is the “pudding” where a layer of jam is covered by an almondy pastry cream and baked in puff pastry. The second is the “tart” where a rich shortcrust pastry holds jam and an almondy sponge cake-like filling."

As I am on vacation, there are only pictures; I made a nutella version, a raspberry-peach jam with sweet cheese version, and a lemon curd version. I am sure you can figure out which is which. All three were good, but the nutella was the big hit with the kids. Enjoy and visit the Daring Baker!

Oh my goodness, not only do your tartelettes look amazing, photographically too, but those fillings are to die for. Naturally, nutella is tops, but I'm dying to taste that sweet cheese, raspberry peach! Beautiful and oh so mouth watering! What a great job on the challenge!
