Has anyone got a recipe for Lincoln tart?
I've got a vague recolection of really enjoying it as a child, but cant remember much about it. It's been something I've wanted to make again for some time.
I've just googled and come up with nothing.

I seem to recall its the same as Lincoln pudding but somehow upside down.
Or am I getting confused between bakewell tart and bakewell puddings?

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?

I'm afraid I have no idea what it was, only that I used to like it.

I think I may have got confused with the Lincoln pudding thing. There probably isnt such a thing. I'm getting it mixed up with Bakewell pudding & Bakewell tart (one being the upside down version of the other).

Do you only remember liking it or do you have some inkling of what was in it?

I only remeber liking it. Isn't that terrible?

This could be a good reason for phoning mum. I bet she'll remember.

I think they are something like a baked cheesecake with currants in, in a pastry case.

yes, I think that does sound familiar.

but then that sounds very like a Yorkshire curd tart...which is also very nice.

I was born and brought up in Lincoln, and I've never heard of it!

When you find a recipe, please post it here.

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: http://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.
