Traditionals with a twist Bakewell Tart by Fiona Burrell

first_imgThe origins of the Bakewell tart are disputed. A question mark hangs over whether it was originally a tart or a pudding and if it was a mistake by an inexperienced cook. Both Bakewell puddings and Bakewell tarts are sold in Bakewell, Derbyshire, and they are very similar. The pudding is made with a puff pastry base covered in jam, with an egg and almond topping, whereas the Bakewell tart has a shortcrust case, spread with jam and a frangipane style topping. The jam used is usually strawberry or raspberry but cherry or blackcurrant jam is also very good or you can use a sweetened fruit purée instead. Some recipes use almond essence, but this can have the effect of overpowering the other flavours and so is left out of the recipe below. If it is not the damson season, use damson jam instead.Damson Bakewell Tart Serves 8Pastry:Plain flour200gPinch of saltButter120gCaster sugar15gEgg yolk1Very cold waterDamsons250gCaster sugar30gFilling:Unsalted butter, softened100gEggs, beaten3Caster sugar125gGround almonds150gFlaked almonds15gMethod1. For the pastry, sift the flour with a pinch of salt and rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs and there are no large lumps of butter left. Then add the sugar.2. Stir in enough of the egg yolk and cold water until the mixture comes together. Transfer the pastry to a lightly floured work surface. Roll the pastry out until it is 3mm thick. Line a 25cm flan tin with the pastry and chill it in the refrigerator for half an hour.3. Wash the damsons well and remove any stalks and leaves. Put into a saucepan with the sugar and 3 tablespoons water. Cook over a low heat until the damsons are soft and push them through a sieve, discarding the stones as you go. Leave the purée to cool. Add more sugar to taste.4. Line the pastry case with baking parchment, fill with baking beans and bake blind at 190°C for 15 minutes. Remove the baking beans and parchment and return to the oven for 5 minutes until lightly golden and dry to the touch. Allow to cool.5. Spread the purée over the pastry.6. For the filling, beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs, a little at a time and fold in the ground almonds. Spoon the mixture carefully over the purée and spread it out to the sides. Sprinkle over the flaked almonds.7. Bake the tart in the middle of a 180C oven for 3035 minutes, or until the filling is golden brown and is firm to the touch.8. Remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly before removing the flan tin and base. Dust with icing sugar if liked.last_img read more

first_imgReacting to the outcome, Okon who was tournament co-ordinator said he was not surprised at the exploits of the Oyo state team.“We have a very healthy cricket culture in the state and Ibadan in particular. You see these kids, they train with the Indians here and we have a developmental programme which engages them at very early age. We monitor their growth and development”, he saidUkpong said he was looking forward to the second edition which he projected would be tougher because other states would be better prepared, as“From what we saw, they now know it is no child’s play.” South West representative on the board of the Nigeria Cricket Federation, Okon Ukpong has hailed the Oyo State team at the just concluded Jide Bademosi U-19 Cricket tournament held at the Liberty Stadium Cricket Oval, Ibadan.Team Oyo were in devastating form at the tournament as the Runsewe Sulaimon captained team defeated all comers to the trophy. Lagos, Ogun and Osun were the other teams at the competition. Chairman of the Energy and Mineral Resources, EMR, Seye Fadahunsi said the competition provided a good stead for young cricketers in the South West to express themselves as competitions had become rare. “I congratulate Oyo for their feat. The essence of the tournament was achieved as we saw young cricketers who with proper attention could make this country proud in future”, he satd.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Powered by Firework The year of 2019 is almost over, and looking back at last 12 months in the sport of football has given us enough eye candy. This time, its for the fans of the English Premier League, where we saw numerous breathtaking screamers. Below here are the top five best Premier League goals of 2019:Advertisement Image Courtesy: BBC/GettyDaniel James against Crystal PalaceFormer Swansea City winger Daniel James’s arrival at the Old Trafford has been fruitful for the Red Devils. The 22 year old Wales international is earning praise on the flank for Solskjaer’s side, and his goal in the Crystal Palace game in August does them justice. Receiving a pass from Anthony Martial in the box, James perfectly lobbed it into the top corner. Check out the screamer below, courtesy of Crystal Palace’s official YouTube channel.Advertisement Tammy Abraham against WatfordRising from the youth system at Chelsea, Tammy Abraham has been an indomitable force up in front for Frank Lampard. The 22 year old young English attacker has already scored 11 goals this season. A surgically precise through from Jorginho, and his spectacular one touch finish versus Watford last month is arguably his best. The goal was also nominated for November’s Premier League goal of the month award. Check out the goal here, courtesy of the official YouTube channel of Chelsea FC.Advertisement João Moutinho against AFC BournemouthNo matter how difficult the angle to the crossbar can be, Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder João Moutinho can put the ball into the net. In last month’s fixture against Bournemouth, the veteran Portuguese accurately swerved the ball into the far corner from a difficult spot outside the box. Enjoy the free kick below, courtesy of Wolves’ official YouTUbe channel. Sadio Mané against Newcastle UnitedWhen its a matchday for Liverpool, all eyes stay glued on the inevitable Sadio Mané. The Senegalese attacker has shown tremendous form in the season, and his goal in the September Newcastle game is a pointer. A receive from Andrew Robertson in the Magpies’ box, and the 27 year old perfectly set the target for just under the crossbar. Check out the eye candy score below, courtesy of the official YouTube of Newcastle United.Kevin De Bruyne against ArsenalThe Belgian Kevin De Bruyne is an indomitable spirit in the Manchester City lineup, and his consistent production of sublime goals are the stout proof. The former Chelsea and VFL Wolfsburg midfielder is the trump card for Pep Guardiola. In the game against Arsenal a couple of weeks ago, the 28 year old’s sensational strike from the distance is one for the talks. A reverse pass from the Citizens forward Gabriel Jesus, and KDB thrashed the ball soaring over Bernd Leno, and into the Gunners net. Enjoy the goal below-, courtesy of Man CIty’s official YouTube channel.  Advertisementlast_img read more
