Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Pear and Raspberry Bakewell Tart.

This recipe is testament to the fact that something really tasty can be put together from a vague idea and a few store cupboard items.  My parents were visiting for dinner and after a weekend away I hadn’t time to go food shopping.  After a bit of routing around in the cupboard I put this tart together for dessert.  It was a big hit with the parents so while it was a bit difficult to photograph I thought I would share the recipe with you all.
