I bought a tin of treacle for some unknown reason! No idea what I can make with it (other than toffee!). Anyone have any ideas/recipes please?

Treacle tart comes to mind but check out this website www.lylesgoldensyrup.com/recipes/ for loads of ideas

We put a dessert spoon of treacle into chilli, it gives it that rich deep smoky flavour. So, we always have a tin on the go in the cupboard

Gingerbread, definitely.

We used to make treacle toffee every Christmas with Lyle's treacle. Sadly now I'm old I think my teeth would fall out if I ate it.

ds uses it when making bbq marinade and in some stir fries, I'm not exactly sure why I don't ask what he puts in food, I just eat it

Is it golden syrup or black treacle? Have you looked up gingerbread recipes?

or have a look at the bbc recipe file for black treacle here

Fab thanks! Am going to make gingerbread. It's black treacle. Great tip about adding it to chilli. I ruddy love chilli!

There are some good Marmalade recipes that include black treacle. Keep it until the Seville oranges come out after Christmas.
