Treacle Tart

If you’ve never had Treacle Tart before… where have you been? It’s a glorious dessert that is a British classic, ultra simple to make and is also Harry Potter’s favourite dessert! (Read the books, it’s in there in black and white) It’s also super simple to make and requires very few ingredients. What else could make old, stale bread taste so amazing!? It’s great on it’s own, but is on…
