Everyone enjoys a traditional British recipe, the following is best known in Yorkshire a county in the North of England.
When visiting York my husband has tried a ‘real’ Yorkshire curd tart from the well know Betty’s tea room earlier this year. So I decided to have a go at making one myself.
Yorkshire Curd Tart
1/2 cup butter
2 cups plain flour
Pinch mixed spices
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp lemon
3 tbsp melted butter
450g curd farmers cheese*
1/2 cup raisins and sultanas
* Sainsburys didn’t have curd farmers cheese so I bought something very similar. It was a cheese ideal for baking items such as cheese cakes.
Step 1. Add butter, flour and egg into a mixer and mix until it becomes a smooth dough ball.
Step 2. Put all filling ingredients into a bowl and mix together.
Step 3. Role out pastry and place into a tin.
Step 4. Add the filling into the pastry case and cook in the oven 185° for 45 to 60 minutes or until cooked properly.
My husband reassures me that my Yorkshire curd tart tastes very authentic as he has previously tried it.
I decided that because sharing is truly caring that I would wrap some pieces of the Yorkshire curd tart up to give to friends.
Today I’ve been busy in the kitchen making a South African dish, so I also look forward to sharing this on my blog.
A Very Happy Sunday!
