From a website Treacle Tart like my mom used to make.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 ounces shortcrust pastry, rich and sweet
  • 4 ounces unsalted butter
  • 8 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4 tablespoons double cream (or single cream if you prefer)
  • 2 lemons, zest finely grated


  1. Line a shallow 23 cm (9 in) tart tin with the pastry and pre-bake or bake blind.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C (400°F) Gas 6. Put a baking sheet in the oven to pre-heat.
  3. Gently warm the butter and syrup together in a pan - just enough for the butter to melt but not letting the mixture get too hot. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool a little.
  4. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream and lemon zest together. Gradually whisk in the warm butter and syrup mixture, then pour the mixture into the pre-baked pastry case.
  5. Place the tart on the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until the centre is set.
