When it comes to baking, the classic Bakewell tart is one of my favorites, full of flavour from the rich buttery short crust pastry to the almond packed frangipane, when paired with fresh fruit it makes a winning combination. So when my breakfast chef and good friend came into work with huge handfuls of my favorite rhubarb freshly picked from the garden I knew what I had to make. Now the only question that remains is custard or ice cream?????
