Preparation Time

60 minutes




9 oz pie crust pastry (enough for two single standard pie crusts)

approx 11 tablespoons black treacle (can use golden syrup if desired)

1 heaping teaspoon ground ginger, optional

4 dry oz (approx 2 cups) unseasoned breadcrumbs


Grease each cup of a miniature muffin baking pan first.

Line each cup of the miniature muffin baking pan with the pastry, rolled as thinly as possible.

Warm the treacle in a saucepan.

Add the ginger to the treacle and stir in the breadcrumbs.

Spoon the breadcrumb mixture into each pastry cup only about 2/3rds full.

Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 °F, watching closely so the crust edges do not burn.

Serve at room temperature.
