Vegan MoFo Day 19 - Golden Crumb Treacle Tart



Golden Crumb Treacle Tart
Ingredients
For the shortcrust pastry:

200g plain flour
100g vegan margarine
2 teaspoons sugar
pinch of salt
a little iced water (about 2 Tablespoons)
For the filling:
2 cups coarse  breadcrumbs
Juice and rind from one orange
8 Tablespoons golden syrup

Make the pastry by mixing the flour, sugar and salt together and rubbing in the margarine until the mix ressembles breadcrumbs, add a little cold water until the dough is smooth but not sticky then place it the fridge for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven at 200°C.
Make the tart filling by mixing the breadcrumbs in a bowl with the orange zest and juice and the golden syrup. Mix to incorporate all the ingredients.
Once the pastry has been in the fridge for 30 minutes, take it out and roll it out onto a floured surface and line a greased 25cm tart tin.
Pour the golden syrup mix into the tart tin and place in the oven at 200°C for 20 minutes and then 180°C for 10 minutes.
Scrummy with custard.

that filling sounds so simple when I look at the ingredients but looks so yummy (are those baby tarts in the background?)

This sounds lovely. I've seen golden syrup in the "international" section of the supermarket, and I've seen lots of recipes using it. It might be time to buy a bottle and make this!
