Bakewells

Pastries

General term for pastries based on the Bakewell Tart form of open shortcrust base covered with a fruit paste (jam, lemon curd, coconut fondant, apple puree) and then filled with a sponge mixture and baked. The 'Cherry Bakewell' is especially popular, using red jam, almond flavoured sponge and topped with plain white icing and a crystallised cherry.



The Buxton Spa Bakeries, about 12 miles outside Bakewell, formerly employed 120 people producing some 1,000,000 cakes a week, most of them of the Bakewell form. It closed in 2010.
