Bookish Baking #4: Harry Potter Treacle Tart

I’m really liking this series, I hope you guys are too! Its fun to put together these recipes (even if I’m crazy behind on reviews…).

My first was a Butterbeer recipe and my second was Night Circus Cinnamon Things. The third was Blue Cookies from PJO.



  • Pre-made uncooked shortcrust pie crust
  • A sheet of shortcrust pastry
  • 1 cup golden syrup
  • 1 lemon (zest and juice)
  • Half a cap of vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon of molasses
  • 4 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • A pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 395F/190C.
  2. Heat golden syrup over stove until runny.
  3. Add the other ingredients and stir together into golden syrup.
  4. Pour the mixture into the pie crust.
  5. Cut the dough of the party sheet into long strips for the lattice top (make both vertical and horizontal stripes along the top).
  6. Place onto the top of the pie and cut the excess off.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

When I first read Harry Potter (about a decade ago…wow) Treacle was a mystical magical Harry Potter-esque thing on par with Butterbeer. Treacle isn’t a word in America.

Now I know better.

Here, I have a Treacle recipe I adapted from various versions online.

If you try out my variation, let me know how it goes, if you liked it, etc!

I hope you guys are enjoying this Bookish Baking feature as much as I am!
