    For the pastry:

    • 8 oz plain flour plus extra for dusting
    • 4 oz butter , chilled, diced
    • 1 egg lightly beaten

    For the filling:

    • 1 lb golden syrup
    • 3 oz breadcrumbs fresh
    • ground ginger generous pinch
    • 1 lemon zest, finely grated and 2 tbsp of the juice



    • In a bowl, rub the butter into the flour with your fingers until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.
    • Mix in the egg with a knife, then knead on a clean, lightly dusted work surface to form a smooth dough.
    • Use the dough to line a 23cm/9in loose-bottomed tart tin, prick the base all over with a fork and leave to rest in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
    • Preheat the oven to 190C/375F degrees.
    • Line the pastry with parchment paper and weigh down. Bake the pastry for 10-15 minutes, remove the paper and return the pastry case to the oven for a few minutes more, until light golden-brown.
    • For the filling, mix together the filling ingredients in a bowl and pour into the pastry case. Return to the oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes. Serve hot or cold with clotted cream or double cream.
