Daring Bakers - Challenge THIRTEEN!

The June challenge is ... Bakewell Tart/Pudding!

I'm posting this way too late and I know it won't even count but I so don't care right now. I know I did the challenge during the month and that's all that matters right? And it tasted good and I'm happy. If I ever see another bag of almond meal again before my death it'll be too soon. Anyway. Think happy thoughts.

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.

My sister ran off to Jordan and took my DSLR camera with her so crappy pics will be the norm for the next 6 months. SIGH. To think I paid a grand+ for it. :(

I decided to do half jam and almond frangipane and half nutella and hazelnut "frangipane". The shortcrust recipe they gave us was amazing. I froze the butter and it turned out brilliant. I'm definitely using this recipe again.

The tarts were really popular.

Sliced up mini-tarts. Pretty?

I personally preferred the jam one! Stood the test of time; must be good.

I'm losing motivation to do all these challenges. I liked the old forums better too. The new forums are really hard to read and navigate and are hard on the eyes. Sigh.

Your turned out well! You loaned your DSLR camera to your sister!? Wow! I wish my sis would loan me hers ;)

I've found that with both DB and DC challenges, I am out of time for the forums by in large... but... it still provides something new to try cooking-wise...
