💡 A bit about your specialist ingredient

Black Treacle - Throughout the 20th century, the rich bittersweet smell of black treacle would fill Irish homes in the winter. From fruit cakes, to steamed puddings and dark breads, it added a rich colour and flavour to baked goods, perfect for the colder months. The famous treacle tin and logo from Tate and Lyle have not changed since the days of rationing, and evoke a bygone era of Ireland.
