Eve asked me, the other day, what was a Bakewell slice and I put the recipe on my questions page. I did promise that I would post photos next time I made one and so here we go. Of course the real reason for this flurry of baking enthusiasm is the fact that I am supposed to be working on a 4000 word essay!! I have done 200 words so far...
Anyway... the full recipe is on my questions page up above, but here are my photos. I really recommend it as its easy, cheap and very scrumptious!! Let me know if you make it??
cream together ground almonds, sugar and butter.
add eggs and mix
roll out pastry ( my rolling pin was in the dishwasher so I had to use a beer bottle... )
splodge almond mix on top
roughly fold over pastry a la rustique until it looks like this...
then paint with egg wash and bung in the oven.... it should come out looking like this ...
serve hot with custard or cream... or leave it until cold and have with a cup of tea. yum!
Thanks to Economy Gastronomy for the recipe!!
And now I suppose I ought to do a bit more of my essay before I pop over to the allotment!!
