Vegan Raspberry Bakewell Tart (gluten free)

La de da! Well have I got a delicious recipe for you! A nutty base, the most gorgeous gooey almondie filing, fresh tart raspberries and a layer of raspberry jam.
Oh my goodness it’s good.

What memories does this recipe conjour up for me? Little Mr Kimpling Bakewell tarts which I used to wolf down given the chance when I was little. I’m not sure they were very healthy but i remember and love their almondy deliciousness.

In fact I’m sure they started my love for frangipane and all almond based desserts – no bad thing I think ūüėČ

My version is just as rich and almondie but happily it’s homemade with natural whole ingredients and refined sugar free. I tested this recipe out on Andy and lots of my friends (willing victims) – a very big thumbs up all round!
I hope you enjoy xx

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.

    Hi Niki,

    Would you recommend using coconut oil for the tart base, and also thawed frozen raspberries for the filling? Thanks!

    • Niki on September 10, 2018 at 9:27 am

      Hi Kathleen
      I think that coconut oil should be ok for the base but I wouldn’t recommend using thawed frozen raspberries as I fear there would be too much moisture.

    Can I use only buckwheat flour for the crust, or I have to mix it with the oat flour?

    • Niki on August 24, 2018 at 12:00 pm

      Hi Stely
      You can definitely use just buckwheat flour – just as delicious!

    Hi! Can I use eggs instead of flaxseeds? Will the result be the same? Is the cake dry or moist? Thanks!

    • Niki on July 21, 2018 at 9:10 am

      Hi Katja
      Yes you absolutely can. Either work well.

    Finally I’ve found a vegan Bakewell tart recipe! Are these in Australian or American cups measurement?

    Thanks x

    • Niki on June 23, 2018 at 11:08 pm

  6. jackie coackley on June 21, 2018 at 11:22 am

    Hi Nikki

    What size pie pan did you use please.?

    Can’t wait to try this !!!!

    • Niki on June 24, 2018 at 8:23 am

      Hi Jackie!
      I used an 8 inch loose bottom.
      Let me know how you get on xxx

  7. Franny on June 12, 2018 at 7:06 am

    This recipe looks amazing!
    Do you think I could make it with strawberries (I have a huge basket full right now and want to make a cake with them) or would the texture get weird? Maybe if I add them on top after baking the filling?
    Also how big is your pie pan?

    • Niki on June 14, 2018 at 9:06 pm

      Hi Franny
      I think that strawberries would be lovely, I’d just chop them up a little.
      Enjoy xx

  8. Emily on June 12, 2018 at 5:59 am

    Do you line the pan with parchment paper?

    • Niki on June 14, 2018 at 9:06 pm

      Hey Emily
      You definitely can, I just geased with a little coconut oil.
      Niki xx

  9. Samantha on June 9, 2018 at 9:26 pm

    I’d really love to try this!
    Please explain what flax eggs are?
    Thank you!

    I’ll of course exchange sea salt for desert salt ūüėÄ

    • Niki on June 10, 2018 at 5:11 pm

      Hey Samantha
      Flax eggs are a vegan egg substitute. They act as a binding agent.
      Let me know how you get on!
      Love, Niki xx

  10. Plantbasedinmorocco on June 9, 2018 at 6:05 pm

    Looks delicious! What can I submitted the vegan butter with?

    • Niki on June 10, 2018 at 5:12 pm

      Thank you x
      You can use margarine or butter
      Best wishes
      Niki xx

      • Natalie on September 10, 2018 at 1:07 pm

        Can you use coconut oil instead of the vegan butter?

        • Niki on September 11, 2018 at 12:01 pm

          Hi Natalie
          I’m afraid I haven’t tried with coconut oil.
          Please let me know if you try.
          Best wishes
          Niki x

  11. Kim on June 9, 2018 at 11:49 am

    Hi, any substitutes for the 1/2 c of buckwheat flour. Thanks.

    • Niki on June 9, 2018 at 1:26 pm

      Hi Kim
      Yes absolutely, you can use any flour of your choice.
      I just like buckwheat for its nutty flavour and that it’s naturally gluten free.

      Keep me posted.
      Love, Niki xx
