Do you have a favorite food that is a childhood memory of Thanksgiving and Christmas family dinners? Well, I do. My mother's family was from Liverpool, England, and she always made a special dessert for family gatherings that she called Kentish Tart.
The original recipe was given in terms of the weight of an egg, so no telling how old the recipe was!
She always made it without measuring anything ... but I'm not into cooking and didn't have the good sense to learn how to make it anyway. Then she developed Alzheimer's Disease and finally passed away, so the recipe is lost to us.
It was made with a pie crust bottom, a layer of raspberry preserves, and then a layer of spongy yellow cake. It cooked up with a dark "skin" on the top.
If this recipe sounds familiar to anyone, our whole family would really appreciate your help in re-creating it. Putting this special dessert on our Christmas family table would be so meaningful!
