Treacle Tart paired with Kilchoman Machir Bay Islay Single Malt Whisky
Treacle tart is one of most enduring and popular traditional English puddings and is a firm favourite.
This nursery pudding is fit for so many occasions from a dinner party with friends to a family Sunday lunch, or even just with a cup of tea. Any season it is so adaptable you can dress it up or leave it simple, but no matter how you serve it, it will always bring back childhood memories.
Make the pastry rub 70g of butter 150g of plain flour with your fingertips until it resembles rough breadcrumbs, then bring the mixture together with 2 tbsp of cold water to form a soft ball of dough.
Rest the pastry in the fridge for 15 minutes.
Use the pastry to line a deep-sided (4cm) 20cm tart tin with a removable base.
Chill for 20 minutes.
Set the oven at 200C/gas mark 6.
Warm 675g of golden syrup into a saucepan.
Stir in 270g of fine white breadcrumbs, then pour into the uncooked pastry shell.
Slide the tart into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
Turn the heat down to 180C/gas mark 4 and continue cooking for 15-20 minutes.
Serve warm with clotted cream and a dram of Kilchoman Machir Bay.
