Harry James Potter. The Boy Who Lived. The Chosen One. Treacle Tart Lover?
That’s right the illustrious Harry Potter loves treacle tart. In fact, it’s his favorite dessert. Want to make it your favorite? Better yet, want to make you the favorite baker envied by all and maker of the most coveted, most scrumptious treacle tart that ever graced the mouth of any witch or wizard?
Good. You’re in the right place.
This scrumptious, crumbly, gooey, recipe is perfect for all your mates for every occasion! With a flick of your wand, you can whip up this delectable treacle tart, however, we found it to be far more enjoyable sticking with strictly muggle techniques! No wand needed! That’s why this recipe is great to do with your underage wizards.
Note: The pie crust will need setting, so ensure you have proper time before you plan on serving. We find it easiest to make the treacle tart crust the night before.
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour + some for rolling out the dough
2 T sugar
1 Tsp salt
10 oz/ 2 ½ sticks thawed butter (For best results, use European style butter as it has less water. However, standard butter will work. Just a slightly different texture.)
5-6 T very cold water
Alternative: 2 ready-made pie crusts
1 cup golden syrup (can be found at many grocery stores)
2 ½ cups (110 g) fresh crustless breadcrumbs (To make bread crumbs, remove the crusts and lay the bread out to dry. It is ready when it is completely stiff. This can take a few days. For a quicker method, I have also seen people toast the bread, then remove the crusts.)
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 T water
Measuring Spoons and Cups
Pastry Mat (optional)
Ready to eat like the renowned Harry Potter? We are too! Harry Potter’s Favorite Treacle Tart Recipe is wonderful served both hot or cold! Even better, eat it some when it’s hot, then eat the cold leftovers (if there is any—Harry Potter has great judgment because it’s that good!) the next day. All we know is that your guests–witches, wizards, and muggles alike–are going to be begging for the recipe!
We here at the Daily Prophet personally love serving it with custard or whipped cream for a little extra magic.
