Bakewell Tart

As I am sure you know, a traditional Bakewell tart recipe is not vegan.

If you know BOSH!, You will know we like to make traditional recipes and turn them plant based and vegan friendly !

If you have ever wondered where BOSH! is from? We are Sheffield lads through and though, so had to make some of our local bakes!

Whilst in Bakewell recently we were told a vegan version couldn’t be done, so of course- we didn't sleep until we came up with the best vegan bakewell tart recipe known to man!

This is a super delicious vegan desert, with an incredible base, sweet fruit compote and a smooth frangipane topping. A great desert idea for the family!
