Nakd have recently brought out a new bar, Bakewell Tart flavour, and it’s AMAZING. I urge you to try it! I also urge you to try these homemade mini bakewell tarts I’ve made…All the bakewell flavour comes from the Nakd bars which are filled into a gluten-free and vegan pastry. The taste is spot on and they look super cute too. Perfect party food :-)
For the shortcrust pastry:
- 150 g plain gluten-free flour
- 75 g dairy-free soya spread
- 2 tsp agave nectar or maple syrup
- 75 ml cold water
For the filling:
- 30 g dairy-free soya spread
- 3 tbsp agave nectar or maple syrup
- 25 g plain gluten-free flour
- 50 g ground almonds
- 3 Nākd Bakewell Tart Bars
- Flaked almonds, for decorating
- Heat the oven to 170c and lightly grease a mini muffin tin.
- Make the pastry by sifting the flour into the bowl of a food processor and adding the soya spread. Blend until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Alternatively, mix together in a bowl using your fingertips. Transfer the mixture to a separate bowl and stir in the agave nectar/maple syrup and a small amount of water at a time until a smooth dough comes together. Wrap it in cling film and leave in the fridge for 15 minutes, whilst you prepare the filling.
- Make an almond Frangipane by creaming the dairy-free spread and agave nectar/maple syrup together, then adding the gluten-free flour and ground almonds, mixing until well combined.
- Once the dough has chilled, roll it out between two sheets of cling film to about 1/4cm thickness. Use a cookie cutter or upside down glass to cut out pastry shells to fit into the mini muffin tin.
- Start filling the shells with bits of the Nākd Bakewell Tart bars, by rolling them into small discs to fill the bottom of the shell, coming up a third of the way.
- Spoon the Frangipane mixture on top and flatten with your finger to create a smooth top. Decorate with the flaked almonds and brush the tops with a little dairy-free milk.
- Bake for 15 minutes, turning half way to ensure an even bake. Leave to cool and enjoy!
