Ginger Curd Treacle Tart

Ginger Curd Treacle Tart

It was surprisingly busy at my polling station yesterday so time went by pretty quickly....having said that 7am to 10pm is still a long day! I'm having an 'at home' day today, cleaning and baking before going out to the local pub tonight for a meal with friends. Anyway onto the recipe.....

I made this treacle tart a few days ago after noticing a jar of ginger curd in the cupboard. I thought adding a bit of the curd would give it a lovely warm rich flavour and it certainly did. I served this with clotted cream but ice cream would be good too.
