Gordon’s Lemon Treacle Slice Recipe

Gordon Ramsay made this sticky, sweet treat for Caffé Nero with the help of some prisoners in Gordon Behind Bars.

Makes 8-10 bars
Ingredients

For the base

300g digestive biscuits
150g butter

For the topping

675g golden syrup
90g butter
100ml double cream
225g white breadcrumbs
5 egg yolks
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp Lemon curd

For the glaze

50g icing sugar
juice of 1 lemon juice

Method

To make the base, pre-heat the oven to 160oC, fan 140oC, gas mark 3.

Place the biscuits in a food processor and blend until you have a smooth crumb.

Melt the butter, then stir into the biscuits. Press the biscuit mixture firmly into the base of a 20cm square tin which has been lined with baking parchment. Allow to chill for at least half an hour.

To make the topping, put the golden syrup into a saucepan along with the butter and allow to melt gently without boiling.

Once the butter has melted take the pan off the heat and stir in the cream, breadcrumbs, egg yolks, lemon zest and juice. Stir well.

Once the base has cooled, spread the lemon curd onto the base. Pour over the breadcrumb filling and then place into the oven to cook for 25-30 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before cutting into rectangular slices.

To glaze the slices, mix the icing sugar with enough lemon juice to make a thick paste. Place it into a piping bag and pipe onto the top of your bars, or drizzle the glaze over with a spoon.
