Bakewell Bliss!

My finished Bakewell Tart.

I've been ill for the past couple of weeks with a really bad cold and chest infection so I haven't done any baking or picked up my camera since, until today.
Im almost better now, so last night I done some baking and made my first ever Bakewell Tart. Its made with sweet shortcrust pastry, raspberry jam and frangipane filling. It tastes absolutely gorgeous!
I found the recipe through this blog and followed the link to the recipe here If you love Bakewell Tarts this recipe is a must to try.

Summers coming....

Saturday 5th May.
Beautiful sunny day today! I forgot what a blue sky looked like after all the rain we've had. We've been spending the day doing a bit of gardening with cake and tea breaks inbetween :) The lettuce seeds that I planted about 3 weeks ago are starting to do well and I'm looking forward to when they are ready to eat. The packet of seeds I bought said mixed variety, but these seedling all look the same! I hope they are mixed, fingers crossed.
