I've got a vague memory of eating pastries with a thin filling of currants, cherries etc and icing on top - is that a Lincoln tart? I can't even find a google ref to Lincoln pudding... what is it?


Ooh! I've just located that memory - school dinners! Suet crust pastry topped with a layer of currants, sultanas and the odd bit of glace cherry and a layer of water icing over the fruit. Heavenly stuff .

I've got alot of old cookery books and can't find Lincoln tart in any--you've just reminded me that I used to love Manchester tart though.

the odd thing is I never knew about Manchester tart until recently. Do children still have strange regional tarts?

Still looking for Lincoln tart.
Just been searching t'interweb and this is the only hit that comes up.
Can I really be the only person in the whole world that's experienced Lincoln tart?

A semi-deep google turned up these cookbooks for offer on Italian ebay: https://www.ebay.it/itm/TATE-LYLE-4-COOKERY-SOFT-BOOKS-RARE-TO-FIND-FABULOUS-FORGOTTEN-OLD-RECIPES-/152228746792

under "puddings" they list Lincoln Tart

Ooh I love a recipe hunt. From Slim's link it looks like the Tate and Lyle puddings book is the best bet and there are some on Amazon 2nd hand. So as a matter of public service James shurely has to buy one and tell us if it turns up anything...

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Puddings-Sweet-Success-Tate-Lyle-x/dp/0861090063

There are several copies but I am not allowed to buy any more books as we have nearly run out of walls.

Looks like a ladies auxiliary in Belize put out a cookbook with a recipe as well


Perhaps your local library could down an international library loan request from one of these libraries: https://www.worldcat.org/title/belize-hospital-auxiliary-cook-book/oclc/15509061

Get a grip. The correct response to that is to build an extension not stop buying books. Or move to a bigger house.

It's been a while since I've posted, but I thought I'd just finish this story off.

My mum died a few weeks ago and I've been sorting out her house. When I was a child, we used to cook together lots. She kept a file of all the recipes she liked. Tonight, I've driven back from her house in Shropshire with a car full of memories. Amongst them was her recipe file. And in that recipe file, I've finally found the recipe for Lincoln tart. So here's my mum's Lincoln Tart recipe, word for word as she wrote it:


Lincoln Tart
A good old standby to use up a small amount of pastry
Line a 7 inch flan ring with 4oz short crust pastry and spread with a little jam. Melt together 1 oz syrup, 1 oz sugar, and 2 oz butter over gentle heat. Stir in 4 oz desiccated coconut. Remove from heat and add an egg, well beaten. Spread filling over jam and bake at 400F for about half an hour, cover if necessary.

sorry about your loss, the recipe is the sort of thing that makes the important memories real

how about put the recipe into the ds recipe database?

nice you have popped back, ds has evolved a bit, we are all older and some are sadly no longer with us, it is not all extinction doom and exposing unethical peeps, although the data for both of those is good quality

wildlife is reporting what is happening in various places, the "alternative energy" or energy as i think of it stuff has overtaken blight and slugs

quite a few "projects" seem to be working ok, some have gone really well, there is a rather splendid ds advised allotment development by sgt colon which puts my allottmenteering to shame, various woodland ventures are going well and are ongoing, jema's new garden was a great example of gone well(and an awesome amount of work)
quite a few folk have new or adjusted projects for new circumstances

time passes, the village evolves, it is still inhabited by nice folk with diverse personalities and skills that create a cooperative village attitude

many pop back, hi there stay in touch

Sorry to hear about your mum, but having her recipes is priceless. I have a number of recipes I got from my mum, fortunately when she was alive, but I have never been able to replicate her beautifully risen Victoria sandwich, so never make it.

sorry for your loss James. Having and using your Mum's old recipes is a lovely way to remember her.
