I made this tart from the Downton Abbey Cookbook yesterday afternoon to have for dessert. This is a dish for the servants’ hall and is based on a recipe from Warne’s New Model Cookery from 1925. The pastry is made from flour, butter and water. Here it is before going in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour.
In case you weren’t sure, this is golden treacle.
Two thirds of the dough is rolled out into a bottom crust.
The filling is made from bread crumbs, treacle, lemon juice and grated zest. I am now realizing that grated lemon zest may not be low fiber so maybe I should not have had this. Too late now. Here it is coming out of the oven.
We had it for dessert after the low fiber dinner. We topped it with whipped cream.
It was really good and lemony. I thought it was great. We ate this while watching the protests, police confrontations, graffiti, looting and arson happening nationwide after the killing on Monday of George Floyd. It is all so upsetting and made me wonder what is going to become of our country.
