MY FAVOURITE DESSERT! How to Make a Treacle Tart | Cupcake Jemma

I know, I know. You’re confused because you thought my favourite was Eton Mess? Well the truth is that I find it very hard to decide what my favourite dessert is but THIS, my friends, is UP THERE! It’s a real classic and, with a little help from my pal Felicity Cloake, I have got the perfect recipe for Treacle Tart.

Recipe –
One batch of my Shortcrust Pastry –
an egg for the egg wash

140g brown bread crumbs
60g butter
400g Golden Syrup
35g black treacle or molasses
2 tbsp double cream
1 egg + 1 yolk
1 tbsp lemon juice
pinch of salt

    Pour les francophones, treacle c'est mélasse, ça me revenait plus, merci Google 😅

    Simple and still looking fancy. I love your recipes! Do not ever stop baking!

  4. Ayanna Cudennec says:

    I’m coming to crumbs and doilies on Friday!!!

  5. apprentice CS says:

    Brioche is the best bread to use.

  6. fealubryne says:

    Pretty sure molasses and treacle are fairly similar if not the same thing. I'd assume you could be fairly successful with molasses to make them? I might need to give it a try, I love molasses everything, in Pennsylvania where I grew up we made a pie called shoo-fly that was mostly molasses.

  7. Mrs Sadie Adler says:

    Do you know a great recipe for gypsy tart 😊😊😊😊

  8. Bohumil Peřina says:

  9. Maria Poole says:

    You angel 👼, I’ve been looking for this recipe for years! I’m back to being a kid again, mum always used up bread doing this, we used to have diddy ones in our lunch boxes, sticky fingers for the rest of the day! Yassssssss! Love ya! 😘

    Marmite, now you're talking

  11. River Amazon says:

    That is a really nice shirt

  12. Alpagaa says:

    Oooh, so these are breadcrumbs! On the thumbnail, I thought it was cristallized sugar and it really wasn't appetizing 😂

  13. Ferina Namchoom says:

    Lots of ❤️ from 🇮🇳 INDIA❤️😊

  15. Semantic Samuel says:

    I knew Jemma was a Felicity Cloake fan! I love her column.

  16. Eilish Louise says:

    This looks amazing! I recently reviewed a treacle tart recipe on my blog – Eilish’s Edibles.

  17. Aubrey Iacobelli says:

    Reminds a bit of pecan pie sans the pecans. Can't wait to make this!

  18. Mary Anne Lavender says:

    No offense or anything, but bread crumbs in tarts sounds a teensy bit weird…maybe will change my mind if I tried a slice…

  19. Eiji Hana says:

    Does your friend secretly work for The Arrow? Lol.

  20. percy blakeney says:

    Disagree with the serving instructions! Treacle Tart shoulkd be served hot with cold single pouring cream.

    Otherwise, awesome.

  21. Macca Lives says:

    I just make my own golden syrup and treacle. So easy to do!

  22. Mandala 314 says:

    I found Cupcake Jemma after watching Kays Cooking murder a tart and I was curious about treacle – this looks amazing! I'm going to order some online, and golden syrup. Subscribed!

  23. Indy Smith says:

    We can often find Lyle’s Golden Syrup in our supermarkets in Australia. It is a beautiful golden syrup that has a smoother taste than the syrups produced here. Will def try your treacle tart. Thank you for sharing!

  24. Jenny B says:

    Fab tips, can you make a gluten free pastry, my pastry doesn't stick together with gluten free flour 😭😭

  25. Agatha Cccc says:

    I had no idea what that dessert was so there I am scrutinizing all the ingredients 😂

  26. Kimber Lee says:

    What a great dessert! In the US I get Lyles Golden Syrup on Amazon 😊 treacle is molasses and double cream is whipping cream. I am going to make this for a brunch I’m hosting

  27. Michelle Lamey says:

    Lyles golden syrup is available at most grocery stores where I live in Canada (ONTARIO). Food Basics. No Frills etc.

  28. Mia Schu says:

    If your bread is still fresh/soft, then place slices in a low oven to dry out before blitzing, or grating.
    And custard is the best accompaniment to treacle tart! Or treacle pudding, spotted dick, upside down sponge, or cornflake tart – basically anything made with golden syrup!

  29. Amber Pershouse says:

    Can you use treacle sugar and just melt it down when heating the syrup and butter? I cant find treacle syrup

  30. Filmsparks says:

    could I use bread crumbs from the grocery store?

  31. Isabela Freund says:

    Jemma's dad is Harry Potter cool I never knew!
