Treacle Tart

350° - 35 minutes. Serves 8

Treacle is the British term for what Americans call molasses. Both are byproducts created during sugar refining.


2 cups treacle or molasses
1 1/2 cups fresh white bread crumbs
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 (9-inch) pie shell, with additional pastry for lattice top
1 egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon water
Whipped cream, for topping


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the treacle, bread crumbs and lemon juice and spread into the pie shell. Roll out the remaining pastry, cut it into 1/4 -inch strips and form a lattice top over the filling. Brush the pastry with the egg and water mixture and bake 10 minutes.
Reduce the heat to 300 degrees and bake another 20 to 25 minutes, or until filling is lightly set. Serve hot with whipped cream.
Makes 8 servings.
