Strawberry Flan

Strawberry season for me means strawberries in all forms, as often as possible, as long as possible. 😀

To celebrate the beginning of the season…

Strawberry Flan

  • 3 free-range eggs
  • 75g caster sugar (use part vanilla sugar if you like)
  • 75g self-raising flour
  • butter/flour for greasing pan
  • a punnet of strawberries
  • 50ml elderflower cordial
  • 200ml water
  • 1tbsp sugar
  • 1 packet Dr Oetker “Tortenguss”/Clear Glaze (or equivalent)
  • 150ml cream

Preheat oven to 200°C/400F and grease and flour a flan tin.

With an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl until pale and fluffy. Fold in sieved flour carefully. Pour mixture into pan and bake for 7-10 mins until lightly golden and springy to touch. Remove cake from oven and cool for a few minutes. Turn onto a rack to cool completely.

Place on your cake platter. Slice the strawberries and spread over the flan. Prepare the glaze with sugar, 2ooml water and 50 ml elderflower cordial, or according to the instructions. Quickly spread over the strawberries and allow to set. (Can be chilled).

Whip the cream and enjoy!
