Using cake crumbs in Treacle Tart
Asked on 27 May 2019 by rmultiple
I want to make the treacle tart from Delia's Complete Cookery Course, but use cake crumbs instead of bread crumbs, as suggested by Margaret Fulton in her Encyclopedia of Cooking.
I'd like to make the crumbs from a cake that I've made myself. Could you suggest what kind of cake would be appropriate to make to use for the crumbs?
If you prefer to use cake crumbs choose something plain like a Classic Sponge cake or Madeira. Either way I'd leave them to go stale before using in the recipe.
