Recipe

A traditional British favorite.

Yield: Makes 8 servings
Prep time: 30 Mins, Plus Chilling
Cooking time: 30 Mins

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 8 tbsp cold butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1½ cups golden syrup
  • Zest of 1 large lemon, finely grated
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 cup fresh bread crumbs

Special Equipment:

  • 9 in (23cm) tart pan with removable bottom

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl. Add the butter and mix until the dough resembles coarse bread crumbs. Mix the egg yolk with 3 tbsp cold water. Add to the dough and stir until it comes together.

2. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 1/8 in (3mm) circle to line the tart pan. Trim the excess and prick with a fork. Chill for 30 minutes. Line with wax paper, fill with baking beans, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove the paper and beans and bake for 5 minutes. Remove and reduce the oven temperature to 375°F (190°C).

3. Warm the syrup in a saucepan with the lemon. Add the ginger. Sprinkle the bread crumbs in the tart shell, pour in the syrup, and let stand for 5 minutes. Use the dough trimmings to make a lattice top. Bake for 20–30 minutes.
