For the pastry

Step 1

Place the flour and Tate & Lyle icing sugar into a bowl or food processor and pulse or mix to combine. Add in the cold cubed butter and rub or pulse again until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Tip in the egg yolks and pulse until just combined. Add in the ice water one tablespoon at a time and mix/pulse until the dough starts to come together.

Step 2

Tip the mixture out onto a clean work surface and squeeze together to form a dough. Shape into two discs, wrap in clingfilm and chill for at least 30 minutes.

Step 3

Once chilled, roll out one disc between two sheets of parchment about 2” larger than your tin (I used a 20cm loose-bottomed fluted tart tin) and it use to line the tin, pressing into the creases. Use a sharp knife to cut off any excess pastry, prick the base with a fork then return to the fridge to chill for another 30 minutes.

Step 4

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 170C/320F, then bake the tart for 20-25 minutes until golden and biscuity. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for about 15 minutes before bringing it all together.

For the ganache

Step 1

Place the chocolate in a large bowl, then set aside.

Step 2

Heat the cream until almost boiling. Pour over the chocolate and leave to sit for a couple of minutes

Step 3

Stir the mixture and watch the magic happen! Once the mixture is fully combined, leave the ganache to cool down to a loose room temperature before using.

For the caramel

Step 1

Add the butter, Tate & Lyle brown sugar and golden syrup and cook over medium heat until melted and golden.

We wouldn't usually recommend reaching for the vodka bottle. But this is one exception!

Unlike water, vodka doesn't help with the formation of gluten, a key culprit in turning pastry hard and leathery.

Plus, it (thankfully) doesn't effect the flavour!
Bakers like to take all the credit for swirly and beautiful icing, but the truth? 

It's all about the nozzles! 

Our friend @elliebakess reveals all...
This is why you need a blowtorch! 

A sprinkle of Tate & Lyle Sugar and a blast of heat brings sweet caramelisation every time, giving tarts and cheesecakes a crispy, sweet brulée topping.

No blowtorch? Then just throw your bakes under the grill for a few minutes!

Sweet and citrusy, we recently discovered the joy of a Lemon Drizzle Scone! 

There's no need for jam and cream with these, as the delicious glaze keeps things light and fresh - perfect for a fluffy scone.

However, if you want to add lemon curd... we won't judge!: 

Ingredients

40g Tate & Lyle Golden Caster Sugar
375g Self Raising Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
75g Unsalted Butter
Zest of 2 lemons
1 egg
170ml milk of choice

Glaze

5 tbsp Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar
2/3  tsp lemon Juice.
Zest of 1 lemon.

Method

1. Pre- heat oven to 220c, 200c Fan Gas Mark 7. Place the flour, baking powder, Tate & Lyle Golden Caster Sugar and softened butter in a large bowl rubbing the butter in to form fine breadcrumbs.
2. Stir in the lemon zest, place the egg and milk in a measuring jug, and beat together. Add to the dry mix, keeping back a small amount to glaze the scones before baking. Mix together to form soft dough.
3. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to ½ inch in thickness. Cut into rounds with your chosen cutter.
4. Place the scones on a large baking tray lined with parchment leaving a little space in between, glaze and sprinkle with a little sugar on the tops.
5. Bake for approximately 15 minutes or until a lovely golden brown colour.
6. Remove from the oven and cool on a cooling rack. 
7. Mix the Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar with the lemon juice to form the drizzle.
Once the scones are cool, Drizzle over each scone and sprinkle with the lemon zest.
Believe it or not, custard slices actually hail from Australia! 

A delicious vanilla custard block hidden between two crisp puff pastry slices (dusted with plenty of Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar!) 

If you've not made one before, we suggest you rectify it ASAP!:

Ingredients

Pastry

3 Tbsp. Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar for dusting
500g Block Puff pastry
60g Flaked Almonds

Custard Filling.

140g Tate & Lyle Pure Cane Caster Sugar.
750ml Whole Milk
250ml Double cream
1/2 Vanilla pod Halved lengthways seeds removed
90g Corn flour
25g Custard Powder
3 medium Egg Yolks
1 Gelatine Leaf

Method.

Heat the oven to 200c/180fan/Gas6.

Divide the pastry into two and roll out half on baking parchment to 25x 25cm. Scatter over half of the almonds pressing them gently into the pastry and then sprinkle with Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar. Cover with another layer of baking parchment and another baking tray and on this place a weighted object like a square casserole dish filled with baking beans, to keep the pastry flat. 

Bake for 30/35 minutes until a crispy golden brown.

Remove from the oven take off the baking weights remove the parchment and allow to cool. Repeat the process with the other half of the pastry. Allow both to cool completely.

Put the gelatine in a bowl of cold water to soften.

Mix the corn flour with the custard powder and approx. 6 tbsps. of the milk, add to the pan with the rest of the milk, the vanilla pod and seeds, Tate & Lyle Pure Cane Caster Sugar, cream, whisk over a low heat to ensure no lumps appear, after a couple of minutes whisk in the egg yolks and keep heating until the mix is thick and smooth. Remove the vanilla pod and  gelatine form the water and whisk into the custard and heat for a further minute.

Line the base and sides of a 20cm square cake tin with baking parchment. Trim one square of pastry to fit in the tin almond side down.

Spread over the custard evenly. Trim the other square into eight rectangles and sit them on the custard almond side up. Gently press down onto the custard. And chill overnight.

Slice & Dust with icing sugar and serve with fresh raspberries. Enjoy!

Most people's favourite season is summer... but ours is definitely rhubarb season! 

Never sweeter than now, we don't even need to bake with it. We'd be happy just dipping it in some Tate & Lyle Sugar!

That being said... these Rhubarb Muffins do look delicious. A bake for this weekend perhaps? Follow along for the recipe!
Another tea break taken care of! 

Self-confessed tea fanatic like @moneymakeoverwithgem live for a stress-free few minutes with a cuppa for company.

And a Tate & Lyle Sweetener is one of the best ways to go about... The sugar alternative that's lighter in calories as well as on your pursestrings! 

Here's what she had to say: 

"Tea for me is my me time. When I wake up in the morning, or take a break from work it is my time to relax and enjoy my tea (I am a tea addict 😂).

I have tried sweeteners before in the past but didn’t stick with it.

However, after trying these sweeteners that I was kindly gifted I definitely will make an effort to use these a lot more.
Can anyone guess what this brand-new scone recipe is? 

CLUE: It's not savoury!
