Cherry bakewells

Mr Kipling Cherry Bakewells are my husband's favourite. 
And he hasn't had any for ages because of my new year resolution to buy no shop cakes.

I had some leftover pastry so I've made him a few and gained points for my indispensible wife status!

Roll out your pastry and cut into rounds and put into the bun tin.
Put a little blob of raspberry jam in the bottom; not too much!
Next put a blob of sponge cake mixture on top. I put a little almond extract and some ground almonds in the mixture too, but that's not strictly necessary.

Bake for 25 minutes at 180 degrees C.
Cool, then ice and put your cherry on top.


  1. Oh these look just gorgeous. What sort of cherries are those? They don't look like those horrible glace cherries that taste of nothing; these look nice.

  2. They are glace cherries, but Waitrose ones without the nasty fake red colour! (And they do taste more cherry-like.)
