Introduction: Boothferry Park was the cherished home of Hull City AFC for over 50 years from 31 August 1946 until December 2002. Sadly, it is not so cherished now…
Hull City’s record home attendance was 55,019 at this stadium for a match against Manchester United on 26th February 1949. A record which will never be beaten as the new seated stadium only has a capacity of less than half of that at 25,586.
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 45 mins
Home kit: 11in x 7in loose-bottomed tart tin, blind baking beans (No they are not beans that are blind, Google them!), small saucepan, large mixing bowl
Away kit: 4 pudding bowls and forks
- 375g (13oz) shortcrust pastry
- 100g (4oz) butter
- 100g (4oz) caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- 100g (4oz) ground almonds
- 50g (2oz) toasted almonds
- Blueberry jam
- 125g (4½ oz.) blueberries
Method: Preheat the oven to 190oC
Roll out the pastry and line the tart tin. Prick the base and line with foil and the baking beans, make sure the beans go right into the corners, well not corners but you know what I mean. Chill for 15 mins by listening to some Amy Winehouse.
Now the pastry is chilled, bake for 15 mins then remove the beans and foil and return to the oven for 5 mins until the pastry is a pale biscuit colour.
While the casing is cooking melt the butter and sugar in the saucepan, pour into a bowl and beat in the eggs and almonds.
Spread the tart case with a little jam and the blueberries, then pour the egg mixture carefully over the top. Bake in the oven for 20 mins until the mixture is golden, risen and springy to the touch.
