Butterscotch Tart with Toffee Popcorn
Who doesn't love a good old school butterscotch tart? We're big fans of butterscotch on basically everything, especially when combined with toffee popcorn!! This easy recipe will not only impress your friends and family, but will make their mouths water too!
Shortcrust Pastry Tart Shop brought or Homemade
180 grams (3/4 cup) Unsalted butter
2 tbsp (30 ml) Milk (full fat is best, but any will work)
180 grams (1 cup) Soft Light Brown Sugar
Mix together the below before adding to sauce to prevent lumps
4 tbsp Plain Flour
6 tbsp (80 ml) Milk full fat is best, but any will work
Optional…….. your favourite toppings?! Such as popcorn, chocolate, merigue, cream, fruit.
HOW TO MAKE OLD SCHOOL BUTTERSCOTCH TART?
Simply melt the butter with 30ml milk on low heat (we use whole milk but any will work) pour in soft light brown sugar, and stir , watch as it marbles together into a caramel colour.
Mix the remaining 70ml of milk with 4 tbsp of flour making sure to stir well, so no lumps. Slowly pour into the butterscotch mixture whilst whisking it (to prevent lumps from forming).
MAKING OWN OR USING STORE-BOUGHT PASTRY CASE FOR A TART?
We used a store-bought pastry case for this tart to make it a tad easier. Store-bought pastry tart is a quicker option, but if you are planning on making your own pastry cases, you're a true baking champion and we ALL salute you!
FINISHING THE BUTTERSCOTCH TART (AKA GET CREATIVE!!)
Pour the (still warm) butterscotch sauce into the tart case. Just pour all in the middle, it will spread out to the edges by itself!! Cover without letting anything touch the sauce (we used a microwave splash cover) Place in the fridge to set, for about 3 hours.
That’s it!, you're ready to serve!! Tastes great with whipped cream, or custard, but we're definitely using some of our MiniPop! Toffee popcorn and some mini Jazzies to make it extra yummy!
