Difficulty:
Easy
Prep Time:
20 minutes
Cook Time:
40 minutes
Servings:
Serves 8-10

Ingredients

  • 320g ready-rolled shortcrust pastry
  • plain flour, to dust
  • 50g butter
  • 125g golden syrup
  • 25g light brown soft sugar
  • 100g cornflakes
  • 125g strawberry or raspberry jam
  • custard, to serve

Instructions

  • Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface until it will fit a 23cm loose-bottomed tart tin. Utilizing the rolling pin, place the pastry over the tin and press into the edges and sides, so that some of the pastry hangs over the rim. Cut off the excess, leaving only a tiny bit over the edge.
  • Step 2: Line the pastry case with baking paper and fill it with baking beans or uncooked rice. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Take out the parchment and beans, then bake for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the pastry is golden. Cut off any extra pastry from the edges using a serrated knife.
  • Step 3: Melt butter, syrup, sugar and salt in a small saucepan while regularly stirring. Incorporate cornflakes to thoroughly coat with the butter mixture.
  • Step 4: Spread the jam onto the pre-baked pastry. Even out the surface. Top with the cornflake mixture, making sure to press down so all of the jam is entirely covered. Put the tart back in the oven and bake for another 5 minutes or until the cornflakes are golden and toasted. Remove from the oven and let cool to a lukewarm temperature before cutting and serving with custard.
