The Treacle Tart

A treacle tart is something that I have never eaten.  It is a very English dessert, and the closest American dessert I can imagine would possibly be Shoo Fly Pie.

A tart is generally a very shallow pie, sometimes topped with a crust.  A treacle tart is a buttery crust filled with a mixture of Golden Syrup, lemon zest, and breadcrumbs.  Golden Syrup (of which Lyle’s is a popular brand) is similar to American Karo corn syrup.  For a stronger molasses taste, dark corn syrup or molasses can be added to taste.

I believe I may bake a Treacle Tart tomorrow, and I imagine it will go down perfectly with a nice cup of tea.
