Am about to make my 2nd Xmas cake as my 1st one was rubbish. Bought a new tin of black treacle but I only need a little.

What else can I do with it?

Another vote for Boston Baked Beans. Belly pork, beans, treacle, other good stuff .... you'll never touch the crap in cans again.

I've just made Golden Syrup scones this morning, and YUM, they're bloody good!

..and YUM at LordFlash's ginger cake recipe...

Mmm thanks IrnBru! smile

You make THIS sticky stem ginger cake with lemon icing.

Selks, I just made treacle scones last night with this recipe:

And they taste lovely!

gingerbread, there's a great recipe in Mrs. Beeton that calls for it.

I'd probably make gingerbread or sticky ginger pudding. Or beg dh to make my all time favourite breakfast buttermilk ginger pancakes. Which is totally and utterly yummy smile

Eat it with a spoon from the tin, like Malt Extract (which I have such a craving for this evening)

I don't have a link but brown soda bread with a bit of brown sugar & about 100ml of black treacle is gorgeous . Eat with just butter & a cup of tea. Looks exactly like chocolate cake!

Mmm treacle scones - anyone got a recipe? Ta

Boston baked beans, the ultimate winter comfort food! There is a recipe here but it is a great one for adapting to your own tastes. I use tomato purée and Worcestershire sauce in mine and serve with corn on the cob.

I would make Parkin, but DDs would moan.

Nothing, Christmas cake is fine without it. Christmas pudding is nicer with prunes for dark richness.

It just rusts away making your cupboard sticky.

I use it in my sticky toffee pudding sauce (from James Martin)

KindleMum Mon 17-Dec-12 20:02:58

Parkin or Gingerbread. Yummmmm

GimmeIrnBru Mon 17-Dec-12 19:58:25

Treacle scones! Have just made a batch, hot out of the oven...

AbbaFan Sat 08-Nov-08 17:50:55

I use it to make Malt Loaf in my breadmaker.

thunder and lightening (cream tea with treacle in place of jam)

or you could make treacle scones

Nigella's ginger cake. I am not a ginger cake fan normally, but i tried that recipe and it is amazing.

TooTicky Wed 05-Nov-08 13:16:37

It's good in flapjacks.

PeppermintPatty Wed 05-Nov-08 13:15:37

My mum has it on toast too CuppaTea.
And also in her porridge.

Agree with parkin/gingerbread - delicious!

Buda Wed 05-Nov-08 13:13:06

Lots of replies - thank!

Gingerbread a poss. Xmas bazaar coming up at school and I promised to make something.

Treacle toffee - I would be only one eating it!

Nigella's ham - sounds fab but can't get ham here.

Green Bean dish - sounds nice - will give it a try.

curlywurly - thanks - will have a look on there.

Not sure I fancy it on bread and butter - although I used to like sugar on bread and butter when I was a kid!
