Bakewell 3/7

Bakewell pudding is a jam pastry with an egg and ground almond enriched filling. It is not to be confused with Bakewell tart, which is a completely different confection, made with shortcrust pastry, an almond topping and a sponge and jam filling. Three shops in Bakewell offer what they each claim is the original recipe. The Bakewell Tart Shop & Coffee House sells four different variations of the confection, including: "Bakewell Tart", "Iced Bakewell Tart", "Moist Bakewell Tart" and "Traditional Bakewell Pudding"; whilst The Old Original Bakewell Pudding Shop and Bloomers of Bakewell both sell a "Bakewell Pudding"

Together with Chris you make a whole meal smile
British people are know for the sweet bakery products smile
Good to know they keep the old times living.
Love the brickwork on this house.
Did you try some of the goodies..
Brian Walbey: Yes the buns in Chris's picture look nice don't they. We didn't buy any puddings this time although we have in the past. This shop sells all sorts of goodies and we bought some pancake like confections. This is what a Bakewell Pudding looks like https://www.flickr.com/photos/booksnake/6139890364/
This shop is a gem Brian! I love the stone work.
Brian Walbey: It is Richard, and it's full of lovely thongs one shouldn't really think about eating!!!

Brian Walbey: It sells all sorts of local produce and goodies Lisl, not good for people on a diet!

I ate this stuff in Bakewell once myself but I don't remember it as anything special. What did you think?
Brian Walbey: It is completely different to Bakewell tarts from the supermarket, although they are quite nice, especially with freshly made custard or like this https://www.flickr.com/photos/booksnake/6139890364/

my good lady wife visited here in the summer and brought be back a pudding. It was delicious.
Brian Walbey: They are really nice aren't they, nothing like the ones sold in supermarkets.
Confection wars. Maybe it keeps them all honest in their recipes??? (sigh)
Brian Walbey: Perhaps so Ginnie, whatever they are quite nice, just like this one https://www.flickr.com/photos/booksnake/6139890364/
It would be easiest to try them all and make your own decision as to what is best.
Brian Walbey: I'm fortunate enough to know that from either shop they taste very nice Peter, and they look like this https://www.flickr.com/photos/booksnake/6139890364/
From memory they are all quite different.
Brian Walbey: The basic thing is the same but being hand made instead of factory made each one looks individual.
Not good for the figure smile
Brian Walbey: Indeed not John but nice all the same.

Will you give us a closer look at this typically English delicacy? I never tried it and I never saw it. Chris and you are today on the same page.
Brian Walbey: You should be able to see what a proper Bakewell Pudding looks like here Philine https://www.flickr.com/photos/booksnake/6139890364/
I am already attracted by your shot but your description now has left me salivating smile
Brian Walbey: And so you should Ayush, these puddings are lovely.
The Bakewell pudding as well as the Bakewell tart are two confections that I would like to try, Brian. A treat every now and then shouldn't do too much harm.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would enjoy them both Beverly, perhaps not at the same time though, that's not good for the waistline smile

Just occasionally, rather than than tarts of the confectionery variety, my wanders to a tifferent sort of tart... must just wearing something no bigger than a wide belt wink I'm not keen the Pudding but Bakewell Tart from a proper baker's is quite acceptable.
Brian Walbey: My advancing years mean I'm not quite sure what you could possibly be referring to Alan, oh yes I remember, mmmm. I'll eat the pudding or the tart to be honest.
Actually, there used to be two Bakewell pudding shops in Bakewell and the one that closed claimed to have the original recipe - and it was better! smile
Brian Walbey: I must admit we didn't buy any this time but we have before, goodness knows which shop it was from but we enjoyed it anyway.
Sounds delicious Brian and if I'm ever up that way I will try some. Love the old bakers shop
Brian Walbey: Not to be missed Janet, nothing like Mr.Kipling's inventions.
Gorgeous stonework, Brian. I love both the pudding and the tart.
Brian Walbey: To be honest so do I Pauline, oh dear aren't we naughty smile

Not a fan of Bakewell pudding myself, but a tart with a nice cup of tea goes down a treat!
Brian Walbey: Mmm not sure how I'm suppose to read that Mike, let's say I do as well smile

You would be expecting it to be mouldy after all that handing down, Brian...someone should eat it and be done with it!
Brian Walbey: I would be happy to eat whichever version is put in front of me as long as it isn't mouldy.
