This sweet and sticky dessert is very fun to make, and it’s very tasty, especially when served warm with Custard or some fresh single cream – if you want, really push the boat out, and use some Vanilla Ice Cream or Clotted Cream.
It takes around an hour to make, including cooking time, but you can heat it up again after it’s been made, so you can eat it in one or two sittings if you can resist eating it all at once!
To serve 6
500g Shortcrust Pastry
Plain Flour, for dusting
400g Golden Syrup
225g Fresh White Breadcrumbs
Grated Zest of 1 Small Unwaxed Lemon
2tbsp Lemon Juice
1. Heat an oven to 200C, before rolling out the Shortcrust Pastry on a lightly floured surface, and line a twenty three centimetre flan tin.
2. Mix the Golden Syrup with the Breadcrumbs, Lemon Zest and the Lemon Juice until evenly mixed. Spoon into the Flan Tin, and evenly spread out the mixture, levelling out the top.
3. Cut the remaining Shortcrust Pastry into strips about a centimetre in width, and lay out in a lattice pattern on the top. Seal the strips to the edges of the flan, using water to dampen the edges and pressing together.
4. Bake for ten minutes at 200C, then reduce the heat to 180C, and bake for a further thirty minutes.
