Review: Mr Kipling Lemon Bakewell Tarts

Kipling Lemon Bakewell

No doubt most readers will be familiar with Mr Kipling cakes from the UK and their Bakewell tarts. The familiar versions are made from short crust pastry layered with almond frangipane, jam, icing and a cherry on top.

We’ve seen Christmas ones before (with sprinkles instead of a cherry) but here’s a lemon version with lemon curd, lemon sponge and lemon icing.

There’s nothing really Bakewell about these but they’re a mighty fine tart. If you like lemon then definitely give these a try. The flavour is spot on and the different textures are great. They also don’t fall apart as easily as the originals.

These are available in major supermarkets and will be in my fridge for as long as I can find them.
