Mr Kipling Goodies…
I was brought up in England where “Mr Kipling” is a well known brand of baked goods. One of my favorite Mr Kipling treats used to be a Cherry Bakewell. A Cherry Bakewell is a little tart made of a shortcrust pastry, with a jam and frangipane filling, topped with an almond flavored fondant and a glacé cherry on top. They are very delicious and obviously very high in carbs!
Last week, out of no where, I thought about this wonderful snack. This thought lead to even more thoughts, which lead to a craving, which meant that I had no choice but to make something similar! I already had a batch of my Sugar-Free Strawberry Jam in the fridge, so all I had to do was make a buttery crust, almond frangipane layer and the icing.
Simple Steps To These Sensational Slices…
There are only three components to these slices, all of which are SIMPLE and STRAIGHT-FORWARD:
- Make The Crust – Combine the almond flour, melted butter and granulated sweetener together. Transfer it to a 7″ x 7″ baking pan and bake for 5-7 minutes at 350ºF. Cool for 5 minutes, then spread an even layer of Strawberry Jam on top.
- Make The Filling – Combine the melted butter and sweetener together. Add the ground almonds, egg and almond extract. Pour on top of the jam layer and bake for 20-25 minutes until puffed and golden brown.
- For the icing – In a small bowl, mix together the powdered sweetener, almond milk and almond extract until well combined. Once the tart has cooled, pour the icing on top and cut into squares.
- Essentially a fluffy sponge
- Made from butter, egg, sweetener (traditionally sugar) and ground almonds
- Easy to make and
- Prepared in 3 minutes!
Homemade Jam All The Way…
I love homemade jam. There is simply no comparison to the store bought varities. Not only does it taste infintly better, but you know exactly what ingredients are in it and it’s ridiculously easy to make! I made these these gorgeous Bakewell Slices with Sugar-Free Strawberry Jam, but feel free to experiment with other low-carb jam flavors, such as blueberry or raspberry.
These SENSATIONAL treats can be refrigerated for up to 5 days. Since ours were devoured in two days, I will DEFINITELY be making them on a more frequent basis!
