Bakewell... quiche?

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.

Is it pudding or is it a tart? The consensus last night was that it looked more like quiche. Whatever its name, it was delicious. We were happy to find Daring Baker success again, finally.

We wanted to eat the frangipane with a spoon. Wow!

Perfect crust, no mishaps.

A thin layer of apricot preserves so as not to offend Sara's anti-cooked-fruit sensibilities.

In went the frangipane, though we were sure to reserve a little to make sure it was still good...

When we pulled the pudding-tart-quiche out of the oven, we knew we had a hit. It was beautiful.

Once again, delicious.
