Here's a link which might help. I haven't really examined it in great detail.

Harry Potter info (http://www.ivillage.co.uk/food/cook/kids/articles/0,10103,177270_181300,00.html). Enjoy.

Treacle Tart (http://dynamicearth.com/reviews/hp1.htm) - However, treacle and golden syrup are different. Treacle is very, very thick, dark brown and has a taste that is very different to golden syrup. I have never heard of treacle tart being made with golden syrup.

They were all found by typing in the recipie name in MSN search. There are many alternative recipies too.

My mum used to make treacle tart with golden syrup. I must have been a teenager before I found out that golden syrup and treacle were two different things.
