There’s a little town about 25 miles from me that is associated with a rather delicious tart. The town is Ecclefechan (pronounced Ekkle-FECKan) and in many ways it is really very unremarkable as a town, yet they seem to have this brilliant culinary, history!
You’ll need to start by blind baking a pastry case, and you might have to doctor the filling to fit whatever size of pastry case you have blind baked.
for the filling
- 110g butter, melted
- 100g walnuts, chopped
- 175g soft brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 250g mixed dried fruit
- 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (I have a lovely bottle of Demijohn Apple vinegar that I used in this one!)
Melt the butter and then combine everything pour it all into the pastry case and bake for 30 mins.
Serve hot or cold with ice-cream, double cream, whipped cream… Enjoy!
