Today I had a bit of confusion with flans. The majority of results on Google seem to say it’s a jelly-like dessert with no crust or base… and Wikipedia says it is made with either a shortcrust or sponge cake base. The latter sounded best to me so that’s what I went with!
So here is my lemon flan (or tart) dedicated to Ned Flanders and my friend Tomás (who I would send this to if I could post it or if I hadn’t already eaten it.)
I used this recipe from Delicious Magazine to make the flan. And it is indeed “delicious” as the magazine suggests.
I decorated the flan by printing out a picture of Flanders (see pic to the right) onto some thick card and cut out the dark spaces and lines with a craft knife. I placed the stencil onto the top of the flan and sifted with cocoa powder before removing carefully to reveal Flanders’ beautiful face.
Are you a fan of Flanders’ flan?
