Good old fashioned bakewell tart

Members of the Fenton Knitting Group will be enjoying a slice of the past this evening as they nibble delicious home-made bakewell tart alongside their knitting, sewing and crochet.  The recipe may be a blast from the past, but the tart was freshly made this morning!

The recipe comes from the Hamlyn New All Colour Cookbook, known by handmadebysoo and all the family as ‘the big red book’.  The book was a wedding gift from my husband’s aunt a very long time ago and has stood us in good stead over the years.  Our kitchen shelves are heaving with Jamies and Delias and even the odd Hummingbird, but the big red book is still our first ‘go-to’ recipe book when we want something hearty, warming and tasty or, like this evening, we fancy a truly vintage treat.

Both our children have their own copies – very useful for young people fending for themselves for the first time, off to uni or setting up their own home.  There’s a veggie version, too.

Enjoy!

  1. Thank you to all you lovely foodie bloggers who stopped by to appreciate my bakewell tart! It’s a well known fact that we knitters are almost entirely fuelled by cake! x
