English Bakewell Pudding

A buttery mixture, flavoured with ground almonds and baked in a light, flaky pastry case, is the basis of this traditional Derbyshire recipe, sometimes known as Bakewell tart, the origin of which is still secret.

ingredients

serves 6
212 g (7 1/2 oz) frozen packet puff pastry, thawed
60 ml (4 tbsp) red jam
100 g (4 oz) ground almonds
100 g (4 oz) caster sugar
50 g (2 oz) butter
3 eggs, beaten
1.25 ml (1/4 tsp) almond essence

2. Knock up the edge of the pastry in the pie dish with the back of a knife.

3. Mark the rim with the prongs of a fork. Brush the jam over the base. Chill in the refrigerator while making the filling.
