Old-school puddings like this are my favourite!

Serves 10

320g ready-rolled shortcrust pastry

100g golden syrup

25g dark soft brown sugar

Pinch of salt

175g cornflakes

125g strawberry or raspberry jam

Custard, for serving

Pre-heat the oven to 160 degrees fan. Unroll the pastry and roll out gently with a rolling pin on a floured work surface until it fits a 23cm loose-bottomed tart tin.

Gently place the pastry over the tin and press in well with your fingers. Trim off the excess pastry with a sharp knife.

Place a piece of greaseproof paper on top of the pastry and fill with baking beans, soup mix or uncooked rice.

Bake for 15 mins. Remove the greaseproof paper and beans, then bake for a further 5-10 mins until golden.

Place the butter, syrup, sugar and salt in a large saucepan. Melt over a medium heat stirring regularly.

Fold in the cornflakes and coat them well.

Spread the jam gently onto the cooked pastry base.

Tip two-thirds of the cornflake mixture on top and press down gently but firmly with the back of a spoon.

Add the remaining cornflakes leaving them looser.

Place the tart back in the oven for another 5 mins until the cornflakes are golden brown. Leave to cool for about 15 minutes as this will make slicing easier.

Serve with custard and enjoy!
