We’ve found the perfect way to celebrate autumn – pecan pie! Not only is this a truly scrumptious dessert, it will also make a fabulous addition to your coffee mornings. So without further ado here’s the recipe for all you pie lovers out there :) your new go-to dessert...


Makes: approx. 12 slices

225 grams plain flour

½ teaspoon salt

125 grams vegetable oil

60 millilitres full fat milk

150 grams golden syrup

100 grams soft butter

200 grams soft light brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

350 grams mixed nuts

3 large eggs


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C/gas mark 4/350ºF. In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, oil and milk to form a rough dough.

  • Tip out into a 25cm / 10 inches diameter flan dish, and press the dough patiently over the base and the sides of the dish, slightly coming up over the top if possible. Put in the freezer.

  • Melt the syrup, butter and brown sugar over a lowish heat in a saucepan.

  • Add the vanilla, stir, then take off the heat and let it stand for 10 minutes.

  • Take the pastry-lined flan dish out of the freezer, and arrange the nuts on it.

  • Whisk the eggs into the slightly cooled sugary syrup until it looks like a caramel mixture, then pour it over the nuts.

  • Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, or until the filling has set and the pastry is golden.
