Treacle / Molasses and Marmalade Tart Recipe

Here is a recipe for a rich, sweet tart which mixes the sweetness of the treacle or molasses as it is known in some parts of the world, with the zest of the marmalade. You can use any type of marmalade that you wish but I would recommend smooth as this will give the tart a more even texture..

If you are struggling for any of the ingredients try your local deli or specialist importer and for US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

8oz white breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons lemon juice
8oz shortcrust pastry
8oz golden syrup (or black treacle for a deep STRONG taste)
4oz marmalade

Set oven to 350F, then roll out the pastry and line an 8inch flan dish. Trim the edges, keeping the extra pastry for use later. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs evenly over the pastry base.

Warm the syrup and marmalade gently in a saucepan over a low heat. Stir in the lemon juice, then pour the whole mixture over the breadcrumbs.

Roll out the left over pastry and cut into strips. Use this to make a lattice over the tart. Cook for 25-30 minutes until the tart is golden brown.

The dish should serve 6-8 and can be served hot or cold with whipped cream or a light custard.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
