Treacle Tart - The Closest Thing I Had to a Pie for Pi Day

Saturday March 14 is Pi Day.  For those who aren't geeks, Pi Day is so named because March fourteenth 2015 AD (in the US) can be written numerically as 3/14/15.  Pi written out to 4 decimals is 3.1415.  While such an auspicious occasion can normally be overlooked by even geeks such as me, this particular Pi Day is unique enough that (because of my usual non-planning and hadn't made anything more pie-ish than pizza)  I felt it necessary to search for a stash of not-yet-shared pie photos and write something semi-poetic around it.  Luckily I never got around to posting this deliciously sweet British tart.  "What's the difference between a pie and a tart?" you might ask, Dear Reader.  While there are a few minor ones, the main diff is that tarts have straight up-down sides, while pie sides slope.  

But I digress ...  why will this particular Pi Day astound you?

Chai Tea Bread - SRC

For this month's Secret Recipe Club, I thought I'd try something a little different than my usual chicken or dessert pick:  a quick tea bread.
