Bakewell Tart, Part Deux

The first Bakewell tart worked so well that I decided to make another for a meeting with some fellow teachers.

This time, though, I actually remembered that the recipe only made enough for a 9" tart and multiplied the ingredients by about 1.25. That should be enough for two extra inches, right? Well, no. I forgot the whole geometry thing; it turns out that an 11" pan has about half again as much area as a 9" pan.



  1. Maths... who needs them?!

    Hooray for meetings with fellow teachers though. :) I'm jealous and nostalgic all at the same time. Over a Bakewell.

    My life is ridiculous.

  2. hahhahha that cracks me up. at least it tastes good. that's the most important thing. it looks great. and i guess you'll have to make it again at 1.5x the recipe :)
