A moment later the desserts appeared. Blocks of ice cream in every flavor you could think of, apple pies, treacle tarts, chocolate eclairs and jam doughnuts, trifle, strawberries, Jell-O, rice pudding —
As Harry helped himself to a treacle tart, the talk turned to their families.
HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE
I can’t believe I’ve lived my entire life without ever trying treacle tart. In my defense, I live in California so treacle tart isn’t really sold at our local bakeries. I was very doubtful this recipe would be any good considering it really contains only about 4 ingredients but boy, was I wrong. This recipe is from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible If you don’t have Mary Berry’s baking book, you’re definitely missing out! It’s a classic and I can’t recommend it any higher.
Treacle tart has been a favorite of Harry’s and would make a great and easy addition to your Harry Potter party menu. If you really wan to make this easy on yourself, purchase the crust from the store and make the filling yourself! The filling consists of only three ingredients. Golden syrup can be purchased on amazon or at World Market. Please enjoy!
