Treacle tart is a traditional British dessert. It's rich and comforting, best served with a splash of cream. However, it usually needs breadcrumbs and I didn't have any. So, I decided to use another traditional ingredient, but this time a Scottish one: porridge oats. It works surprisingly well, and is the perfect variation on the tart for a Burn's Supper.



Treacle tart, Scottish porridge oats


Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
225g shortcrust pastry
60g butter
400g golden syrup
35g treacle
2 tbsp double cream
1 egg (reserve a little egg for the egg wash for the pastry)
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp lemon juice
140g porridge oats

Method
Preheat the oven to 180 Celsius.
Grease a pie dish and then lay the shortcrust pastry into the bottom of the dish.
Prick the pastry all over with a fork, lay a sheet of foil over it and then weight down with baking beans and blind bake for 15 minutes.
Take off the foil, brush with egg or milk, and bake for another 5 minutes until golden.
Melt the butter in a pan. Watch is carefully, it quickly burns. Mine went a little brown, but that just adds a nutty flavour to the treacle mixture.
Add the syrup and the treacle to the butter and heat.

Beat in the egg, yolk, and lemon juice.
Sprinkle the porridge oats evenly over the bottom of the pastry crust.
