Bakewell Cake

Classic flavours make delicious cakes

Bakewell tarts are popular sweet treats in the UK, the traditional form is a cherry Bakewell tart but you can find raspberry Bakewell tarts as well. The delicious combination of tart fruit and sweet almond makes for a beautiful flavour combination. We love this combination, so we decided to make our own Bakewell cake.

Sponge’s Bakewell Cake

Our Bakewell tart inspired cake recipe uses natural almond oil and free range eggs to make a yummy and light sponge cake. A smattering of raspberry jam in the middle and an almond oil infused buttercream. Crunchy flaked almonds sit on top. A simple combination of flavours creates a beautiful tasting Sponge Cake.

Cake Storage

To keep our cakes deliciously moist, and to avoid dryness and crumbliness we recommend storing them in a nice cosy spot. They don’t like being cold, so don’t recommend storing them in the fridge.

You can also freeze our cakes for up to 6 months! Just put them in the freezer whole in their packaging or whatever is left over in an airtight container. You could even cut it in to slices – put them in to air tight containers and freeze it that way. When you are ready for more cake, just take it out of the freezer and leave it in a cosy spot for 24 hours. Once it’s up to room temperature it will be just as delicious as when it first arrived and ready to eat.

A Brief History of Bakewell Tarts

Originally Bakewell wasn’t a tart – it actually started out as Bakewell pudding! There have been many variations of Bakewell over the years, including iced cherry Bakewell and jam and coconut tarts. The original Bakewell pudding recipe originated in the 1800’s and it wasn’t until the 20thcentury that it was developed in to the Bakewell tarts sold in cafes, bakeries and shops that we know and love today.
