Just as the cake-loving woman thought she could relax and contemplate the sky, she suddenly remembered she had a Fiesta Friday party to attend in those clouds up there. ‘Brilliant, a party!’ Oops… she’d promised to bring a pretty cake! ‘Noooo, not more writing out recipes!’ she moaned, holding her head in her hands, then suddenly realised ‘Drawings! I’ll draw it all!’ So here you are: pictures and photos of events leading up to the scrumptious multilayered blood orange tart. And a few words, but not too many: Tangy, fresh, almondy, creamy, fruity delight. Yay! She did a little dance.
A tart is born.
Back home, she took a quick gander at Hugo and Victor’s seasonal baking book then buttered the tart ring.
This was the plan. Aah, but would it go according to plan?
She rolled up her sleeves and soaked the gelatine …
… then checked her notes for shortcrust pastry to make her spelt pastry case.
She glanced at her useful tips for lining a pastry case and baking blind …
… but this time left her tart case in the oven for an extra 10 minutes or more, so it was really, really baked and even a bit dark brown at the bottom.
Next came the bottom layer of almond cream.
She waited till it had cooled then spread a thin, even layer of marmalade over the almond cream. Marmalade, yum! Next time she’d make her own …
Finally, it was time for her beloved beautifully-sweet-yet-tart slices of blood orange. The tart-loving woman peeled whole oranges, carefully removing the white bits then cut out segments, leaving the membrane behind, to make the supremes (not the pop group). Want a supreme step-by-step?
She placed the lovely supremes on her tart and tada!
And that is the end of the blood orange tart story.
No time for more words or comedy, sorry! Party to go to with surprisingly scrumptious tart… already a bit late but luckily Fiesta Friday lasts till Wednesday so come with me, meet some lovely people and have some delicious food…! 🙂
Till next time my dear tangy-sweet reader and fellow partygoers… happy blogging, baking, eating and looking at loads and loads of recipes! 🙂
The recipe is interesting no doubt, but what an artist you are! 🙂 Nice to be connected to you through FF!
