Bakewell tart and Bakewell pudding are traditional English pastries that originated from Bakewell, Derbyshire. These two pastries have caused a lot of confusion because they are very hard to differentiate. The Bakewell pudding was a result of a mistake made in 1820 by the white horse in cook. Bakewell pudding is a cake sponge that is made of eggs, spread with jam and ground almond.

The English refer to the Bakewell tart and Bakewell pudding as the same even though their baking methods and ingredients are different. The original Bakewell tart is made of shortcrust pastry, jam usually strawberry, apple or black current, flavored with ground almonds, and a frangipane topping, known to be sponge-like filling. Another difference is that the Bakewell tart does not contain eggs.

The classic English pastry originated from Bakewell, Derbyshire. A Bakewell pudding consists of a cakey sponge made with eggs and spread with jam with a ground almond filling. The classic Bakewell tart does not contain egg, but it does have a similar almond topping. The English locals will refer to the Bakewell tart as Bakewell pudding, regardless of the baking techniques that are involved. This popular English dessert enticed a good deal of patrons who praised the treat as being “baked well,” hence the name, Bakewell.

A recipe became popular for Bakewell pudding with a puff pastry base, while still baked in the pastry case. This dessert should be called a tart. The tart is created from short crust pastry, jam (usually strawberry, black current or apple), and frangipane topping, which is described as having a sponge-like texture and topped with ground almonds. The pudding primarily consists of puff pastry case topped with a layer of jam, then stuffed into a luscious mixture of sugar, almond, butter, and plenty of eggs.
