Flanders’ Lemon Flan

Flanders' Lemon Flan

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.)

Flanders' Lemon Flan

I used this recipe from Delicious Magazine to make the flan. And it is indeed “delicious” as the magazine suggests.

I placed the stencil onto the top of the flan and sifted with cocoa powder before removing carefully to reveal Flanders’ beautiful face.
