    We considered calling in at Bakewell on the way down to Kent but it is too far west. Nice town though.

    maybe in your world Graham....


    The Bakewell Tart is an English confection consisting of a shortcrust pastry with a layer of jam and a sponge using ground almonds.[1] The Bakewell Tart is distinct from the Bakewell Pudding, which is a dessert made using flaky pastry, with a layer of jam covered by an egg and almond filling.

    I don't dispute it John but the original is the pudding. The tart is something of what one might call a prostitution :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
