Remove the paper and beans and bake for a further 10 minutes. 2. Meanwhile, put the rhubarb, ginger and sugar in a pan. Cover and cook over a low heat for 4-5 minutes until the rhubarb has softened. Uncover and boil for 2-3 minutes until the mixture has a jam-like consistency. 3. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale. Add the eggs, a little at a time, and stir in the almond essence. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder together and fold into the creamed mixture with the ground almonds. 4. Spread the rhubarb mixture on to the base of the pastry case. Spoon over the almond mixture and level the surface. Sprinkle with flaked almonds and bake for 35 minutes until golden brown. Melt jam and lemon juice together over a low heat and brush over the tart. Serve with cream. NOTES : Bakewell tart can be very sweet so the tartness of rhubarb gives a good balance.
