2 ounces fresh white bread crumbs
finely grated rind of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon lemon juice
5 ounces rich short crust pastry -- see note b*
6 tablespoons Golden Syrup -- see note a*
a) Golden Syrup, or treacle may be substituted for light molasses or honey.
b) You may substitute the pastry by an unbaked pie crust
Put the syrup into a saucepan with the bread crumbs, lemon rind and juice and heat gently until just melted. Cool.
Roll out the dough and use to line an 8 in pie plate. Pour in the syrup mixture.
Roll out the dough trimmings and cut into long, narrow strips. Arrange them in a lattice pattern over the filling.
Bake in a moderately hot oven (400 ºF) for 25 to 30 min or until the pastry is slightly browned.
Serve hot or cold.
