Vegan Treacle Tart

6 Sep

We made this delicious treacle tart with leftover pastry after a day of testing out various pies for the upcoming cookbook. Absolutely delicious!

For the pastry: 70g cold vegan margarine, 150g plain flour, 3 tbsp soy milk

For the filling: 270g of coarse white breadcrumbs, 650g golden syrup, juice and zest of one lemon,

To decorate: 5 tbsp of icing sugar + a little water, lemon juice (optional)



Make the pastry by rubbing the margarine into the flour with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the soy milk to the mixture until it forms a soft ball of pastry dough. Chill for 30 minutes or so. Preheat the oven to 200 ‘C.

Make the filling by combining the breadcrumbs, golden syrup, lemon juice and zest in a bowl. Spoon into the pastry case and bake for 25-30 mins or until the top is nicely browned. Leave to cool for a bit. Make up a little bit of icing with lemon juice or water and drizzle nice patterns on top.

    Hey guys just watched the documentary about you on 4od, welldone with everything you are up to – very inspiring. I’m not a vegan or someone who goes naked but I think what you are doing especially promoting positive body image is really fantastic. Your recipes look pretty tasty too. Maybe I’ll try both some time 🙂

    Hello, I just made this (doubled the pastry amount though as I like thick pastry), and added a few walnuts to the filling-DELICIOUS.
