Gaby's Bakery - 9

One of the first things I ever baked is still one of my most requested. And these bite sized Frangipane tarts are simple to make and mouth meltingly soft, crumbly and sweet. Delicious…

Blueberry Frangipane

I don’t make the traditional frangipane in a tart case, I use silicone moulds and just the wet ingredients.

Ingredients:
100gms unsalted butter
100gms caster sugar
100gms ground almonds
2 eggs
Blueberries
Flaked almonds
Icing sugar to dust on top to decorate

Method:
Preheat oven to 170⁰C

Choose some moulds you want to use and grease them. Beat the butter and sugar until light & fluffy, then add the eggs one at a time, beating each time. Add the ground almonds and fold in. Pour into the prepared moulds up to ¾ full. Drop a few blueberries on to each cake, quantity will vary depending on individual cake size.

Sprinkle over the flaked almonds and bake for appx 20-25 mins.

They are ready once browned on top and firm to the touch. Leave to cool on a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar to serve.


Oat Cookies

Ingredients:
250gms plain flour
240gms oats
200gms caster sugar
100gms unsalted butter
75gms light brown sugar
1 tbsp water
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
2 eggs

Method:
Preheat oven to 175⁰C

Beat butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and water and mix well. Add salt, baking powder and cinnamon and again beat together. Then add the flour, mix until just combined. Add the oats and mix again until just combined.

Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a lined baking tray, leaving space in between each one. Bake for appx 8-12 mins depending on the size of each biscuit. Once cooked. Leave to cool on a wire rack.

Enjoy
