Golden Syrup TartServes 4-6 (best make it at least 6 servings 'cos it's v.high in cals)For the pastry75g (3oz) plain flour75g (3oz) wholemeal self-raising flourpinch of salt40g (1 ½ oz) butter or block margarine40g (1 ½ oz) lard1-2 tbs cold water1tbs milkAlthough I used this for the pastry this week225g (8oz) value plain flourpinch of salt100g (4oz stork margarine)3 tbs cold water1tbs milkFor the filling8tbls golden syrup, warmed100g (4oz) coarse breadcrumbs (great for using up those breadcrumbs I have been freezing for weeks and didn’t know what to do with)Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon (although I substituted with a teaspoon of bottled lemon juice that I have in the fridge)50g (2oz) ginger nut cookies, coarsely crushed (Tesco value work well)Make the pastrySift together the flour and salt into a bowl. Rub the fats into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Mix to a stiff dough with cold water. Roll out on a lightly flour surface, and use to line a 20cm (8 inch) pie/flan dish.I use a Mermaid pie dish that I recently bought from Lakeland – before that my pastry had always been soggy – not sure if that is the secret of my new found pastry success or not.Reserve the trimmings. Place pie dish in fridge to rest for 30 minutes.Make the fillingMix the warmed golden syrup, breadcrumbs, lemon rind and juice together. Spoon the mixture into the flan case then sprinkle the crushed cookies on top.Roll the reserved trimmings, cut into 6mm (1/4 inch) wide strips and make a lattice pattern on top. Brush with milk. I have a Lakeland lattice roller that I bought many years ago and never used – makes the finished tart look quite professional.Heat the oven to 180 deg celcius, 350 deg farenheit, gas mark 4. Bake for 30 minutes.Variations: Use double the quantity of breadcrumbs instead of adding the cookies or add toasted wheatflakes – although I think the cooked ginger cookies really make the tart stand out for flavour – the cookies go quite gooey and chewy – yum.FFM

£600? That's a lot, just for food? Sorry, I don't mean to be rude.
