LGBTea & Cakes is a magazine-style Movella jam-packed with original LGBT+ themed baking recipes (such as "pride flag shortbread", "transgender blender" and "pansexual pies"), general LGBT+ related advice (including coming out tips, identity definitions and dealing with bullying). A single Q&A page will also be included and updated regularly with your questions, so please comment both baking queries and/or LGBT+ related questions and I'll post answers as soon as I can.

4. Pansexual Pies

Pansexual Pies

​Pansexual Pies are little jam tarts/pies in the colours of the pansexual pride flag (pink, yellow and blue). They are easy and quick to make, and therefore are ideal if you don't have much time. ​SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS WHEN MARGARINE IS USED IN THE PLACE OF BUTTER.

Preparation time: Less than 30 minutes

Cooking time: ​Approximately 15 minutes

Batch: Makes 21 tarts


​- 85g/3oz butter or margarine

​- 170g/6oz self-raising flour (plus a sprinkle for rolling out the pastry)

​- 7 tsp raspberry jam

- 7 tsp lemon curd

- 7 tsp blueberry jam


​1. Preheat the oven to 200'C/400F/Gas 6

​2. Rub together the butter/margarine and flour in a bowl until it's like fine breadcrumbs.

​3. Stir in a few teaspoons of water to form a dough.

​4. Lightly sprinkle a clean surface with flour, and roll out your dough evenly until it's approximately half a centimetre thick.

​5. Using a circular biscuit/pastry/cookie cutter, cut out 21 circles of pastry. If you do not have a cutter, you can also use the top of a drinking glass as an alternative. (If you find that you don't have enough pastry for 21 circles, don't worry - you'll just end up with fewer tarts. If you end up with left over pastry, feel free to make extra or just throw it away.)

​6. Take a cupcake tray (you may need more than one) and place the pastry circles into the trays.

​7. Add the jam. If you have 21 tarts, add 7 teaspoons of lemon curd, 7 teaspoons of blueberry jam and 7 teaspoons of raspberry jam to each tart. If you have more/less tarts, just adjust the amount of each flavour you put in - it doesn't really matter how many tarts of each colour you have!

​8. Put the tarts in the oven for 15 minutes, but check them after 10 minutes as they may already be done. Remove when the pastry begins to go golden.

​9. Leave to cool on a rack and consume within 3 days. You could choose to display your Pansexual Pies in the layout of the pansexual pride flag to give them an even more LGBT+ feel!
