for the filling

  • 8 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 2 oz fresh white breadcrumbs


  • Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Cut the margarine into small pieces and rub in until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Sprinkle over the water and mix to form a dough. Knead very lightly, roll out three-quarters of the pastry on a lightly floured surface and use to line a 23 cm (9 in) ovenproof pie plate.
  • Leave to chill in the refrigerator while preparing the filling.
  • Gently heat the syrup and mix in the lemon rind and breadcrumbs. Pour into the pastry shell. Roll out the remaining pastry and cut into thin strips to form a lattice pattern on top of the tart.
  • Bake in a moderately hot oven for about 30 minutes and serve with a custard sauce.
