Having watched the entire Downton Abbey series, I was very excited to see the movie come out last month. Imagine my excitement when my Baking from Scratch magazine(September/October 2019) came in the mail and it had a feature on the chef who did all the cooking for the show and the movie. They also included a feature on the history of the Bakewell Tart. The chef said that there was a Bakewell Tart in almost every episode on the the show and in the movie.
Traditionally, the Bakewell Tart is done with Raspberry Preserves. The recipe the magazine gave was using Plum Preserves. I just had to try it using our Lilikoi Jelly. I also changed out the almond liqueur in the glaze for Passion Fruit Puree to make the flavors complete.
We had friends over for dessert after the movie and they all loved this tart.
A classic dessert made into an island treat!
