Scottish Recipes - Treacle and marmalade Tart

Here is a recipe for a rich, sweet tart which mixes the sweetness of the treacle, with the zest of the marmalade. You can use any marmalade you wish but I would recommend smooth.

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

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.
