DIRECTIONS

  • First make the pastry.
  • Measure the flour into a bowl.
  • Rub fats with fingertips until it looks like breadcrumbs.
  • Add enough water to mix to a firm dough.
  • Wrap in cling film and chill for aobut 30 minutes.
  • Or make it in the processor, like I do now.
  • Pre-heat oven to 200°C.
  • Roll out the pastry thinly and line a 6" diameter 2" deep loose bottomed flan tin.
  • Heat the syrup in a large pan, stir in the breadcrumbs, lemon rind and juice.
  • If the mixture looks runny add a few more breadcrumbs.
  • Pour the syrup mixture intothe pastry case and level the surface.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes then reduce the oven temperature to 180c and bake for a further 25-30 minutes until pastry is golden and the filling is set.
  • Leave to cool in the tin.
