Whose kitchen are we going to today?
Hello, this is my house and I'm Orson.
Come on in.
This is my mum, Lisa.
-And this is my kitchen.
Today, I'm going to be making Bakewell tarts.
Orson's family have their own special way
of making Bakewell tart.
Orson's family are English
and they live in a part of England called the Midlands.
The Midlands is a region in the middle of England,
which is how it got its name.
Some people think that Bakewell tart was first made in the Midlands.
Bakewell tart is a dessert that lots of families make at home
and there are many different stories
about where the original recipe comes from.
Like Orson's, most families have their own special way
of making Bakewell tarts and will mix and match ingredients
to make it just the way they like it.
Orson has washed his hands, put his apron on and he's ready to cook.
Now I'm ready to make my Bakewell tart for my friends.
And he's invited Cody, Olivia and Joshua
to taste one of the ingredients
before they come round for a very special treat later on.
I think it's a lemon.
It is a lemon, Olivia.
It's very sour.
Yes, sour and sharp.
I don't want any more of it.
I don't like it.
Let's see if Orson can change their minds,
because lemon is an important ingredient in Bakewell tart.
As well as lemon,
you'll need raspberry jam,
ready-made shortcrust pastry,
and self-raising flour.
First, Orson needs to oil his baking tin.
Dip the brush in the oil.
You wipe it round and round and round on the edges
and on the inside
so it doesn't stick
when we put the dough in.
Now you get the flour
and you get it on the board.
That'll stop the pastry sticking to it.
Then you get the rolling pin
and just do a little roll on the board...
..so the dough can't stick
onto the rolling pin.
What a great idea.
Get the dough off the tray...
..then roll it with the rolling pin
to try and make a circle.
Now roll it out nice and thin, Orson.
Oh, and make sure it's bigger than your baking tin.
Now carefully fold up the pastry...
Put it in the tin.
..and unfold it like this.
Then just push it into the tin.
I'm getting the bits off
that's too much.
That's really clever, Orson.
Then I'll get the fork...
..and do holes in it really gently
so the pastry can cook nicely.
And then you get the dough
and put it in the fridge.
Now you need to add butter to caster sugar.
He might need a bit of help with this.
Where's my cement mixer?
Ha! That'll be Mum. And here she is.
So, fast, fast, fast.
Thanks, Mum. You did a great job.
Yeah, now break your egg, Orson.
And your thumb finds the crack...
..and then you open it.
Now I've got to beat the egg.
And I put a little bit of the egg in at a time.
Then I give it a stir.
Then I get the last bit.
Mix it, mix it, mix it.
Now I'm going to add the ground almonds and the flour.
This is hard work.
I'm very egg-cited about this dish.
Egg-cited? That's very funny.
Now it's time for my very special ingredient.
And that's the lemon.
Lemons are citrus fruit that grow on trees.
Lemons grow in warm countries
all over the world,
and they're a very popular ingredient in baking.
Lemons have a tough skin but a juicy middle
which can be very sour if eaten on its own.
You can squeeze a lemon to get the juice out.
This is used to make all sorts of food and drink,
and it's even used in medicine for colds.
So what's next?
I'm squeezing the lemon into the bowl.
Now we start mixing it.
Then when your pastry has chilled,
take it out of the fridge.
Then we get the spoon
and get four blobs of jam.
My favourite thing about Bakewell tart is the jam.
Mine, too. Delicious!
This is raspberry jam.
Next I start tipping the mixture
onto the jam.
Mm! Spread it out all over the jam...
..and sprinkle on the flaked almonds.
There. That looks brilliant.
-Mum! Can you come and help me put it in the oven?
Yeah, that's right, Orson.
Get a grown-up to put it in the oven for you.
Now if you want to make Orson's Bakewell tart,
oil a baking tin,
roll out the pastry onto a floured work top,
add more flour if needed,
and roll it up nice and thin until it's bigger than your baking tin.
Fold the pastry up and unfold it just like this.
Press it inside and roll off the extra pastry.
Make some holes and pop it in the fridge.
Mix the caster sugar and butter in a bowl
until it's nice and light and fluffy.
Break an egg.
Don't forget to wipe your hands.
Slowly add the egg to the bowl.
Ground almonds go in next,
followed by flour.
Squeeze in the lemon juice
and give it another good mix.
When it's chilled,
take the pastry out of the fridge
then cover it in jam,
spread your mixture on top...
..sprinkle on your flaked almonds...
..and ask a grown-up to pop it in the oven.
Now there's just enough time
for Orson to get the table ready for his special dessert.
He's going to put on an afternoon tea for his friends.
Mm! Raspberries! So yummy!
These are raspberries.
They go really well with my Bakewell tart.
Well done, Orson. Your afternoon tea table looks fabulous.
But what's that?
I made a dressing up box for me and my friends
so we can dress up at afternoon tea.
That sounds such fun.
DOORBELL Hey, that must be your friends now.
Come on in.
-Look at all these flags.
I love the balloons.
I've got a fancy dress box for us all to dress up in.
Dig in and help yourself.
Wow. There's some brilliant stuff to choose from in there.
I say. Very smart.
Now Mum's taken the tart out of the oven and everyone is dressed up,
has washed their hands and is ready to eat.
Pudding is arrived.
Mm! That looks nice.
That looks golden brown and delicious.
I can't wait for them to try it.
-What is it?
Yum. That sounds nice.
Earlier on, everyone found the taste of lemon a bit too sour.
Thank you, Orson.
-Do you want some, Olivia?
-Yes, please. Yes.
Do you think they'll change their mind
when they've tasted Orson's Bakewell tart?
I can't believe a six-year-old made this.
It's delicious, Orson.
Can anyone guess what my special ingredient was?
That's right - lemon.
What do you think of lemon now it's in my Bakewell tart?
Well done, Orson. It looks like
they do like the taste of lemon in your Bakewell tart after all.
Thank you for coming to My World Kitchen.
