Treacle Tart with Glazed Apples 

Serves 6
75 mins plus cooling
555 Kcals/portion
Fat 16g (7.2g sat) per portion
Suitable for freezing
Suitable for vegetarians

Plain flour 175g (6oz)
Butter 65g (2½oz), diced
White vegetable cooking fat or lard 40g (1½oz), diced
Golden syrup 454g tin
Ground ginger 1 tsp
Lemon 1, grated zest and juice
Fresh breadcrumbs 110g (4oz)
Cooking apples 2, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
Icing sugar 1 tbsp
Custard or ice cream to serve (optional)

1 To make the pastry, put the flour, 40g (1½oz) butter and fat in a bowl and rub in with your fingertips until you have fine crumbs. Gradually add 2 tbsp water and mix to a smooth dough. Alternatively, you could use a food processor.

2 Knead the pastry briefly, then roll out on a lightly floured surface until a little larger than a 24cm (9½in) diameter fluted loose-bottomed flan tin. Lift the pastry over the rolling pin, place in the tin then ease up the sides, pressing it in place. Trim the top of the pastry so that it stands a little above the tin. Chill for 15 minutes.

3 Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/Gas 5. Pour the syrup into a saucepan, add the ginger, lemon zest and half the juice and gently heat. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the breadcrumbs. Leave to cool.

4 Pour the syrup into the tart case. Toss the apple in the remaining lemon juice. Arrange the slices, overlapping, in rings over the top of the tart. Then melt the remaining butter and brush it over the apples. Bake for about 35 minutes until the apples are golden.

5 Sift the icing sugar over the top and return the tart to the oven for a further 5 minutes or until the sugar has caramelised. Leave to cool for 30 minutes, then remove the tart from the tin and cut into wedges. Serve with ice cream or custard, if you like.

Cook’s tips
Place any stale bread you have in a food procssor and whizz into breadcrumbs.
Separate into portions and freeze in polythene bags so that you have a ready-made supply.

Win a fantastic new cookbook

Honestly it’s true!

Did you know that we, as a nation, throw away around 7 million tonnes of food every year?

In financial terms that means the
average UK family wastes nearly £60

per month by throwing away food*.

However, by making a few simple changes to our habits, it is still possible to cook amazing, nutritious food more economically and less wastefully.

Fantastic Food For LessThis week we officially launch Fantastic Food for Less, a brilliant book packed with delicious recipes that use good quality, reasonably priced ingredients and have minimal leftovers. From tasty soups and snacks, to quick and easy main meals, and heavenly desserts, there is something to suit every taste and occasion.

There are two types of recipes: Quick & Easy, which can be on the table in 30 minutes or less, and Take it Easy, which allows you to do something else while they cook slowly.

And as with previous editions of the Dairy Cookbook series, Fantastic Food for Less features triple-tested recipes, simple to follow instructions, easy to source ingredients and full nutritional information.

Using good quality, affordable ingredients we’ll show you how to make fantastic food and reduce waste with careful shopping, clever storage and fabulous recipes. Leftovers are kept to a minimum with tips on how to use them up or store them. Everything is simple to cook, tastes delicious and won’t cost the earth.”
