Chocolate Flan Case Recipe

Chocolate Flan Case Recipe

Ingredients: Makes one 20 cm / 8 in flan case (Pie shell)

150 g plain (all-purpose) flour
45 ml drinking (sweetened) chocolate powder
50 g hard block margarine, diced
40 g white vegetable fat (shortening), diced
Cold water, to mix


Sift together the flour and drinking chocolate into a bowl. Add the margarine and vegetable fat and rub in with the fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Mix with enough cold water to form a firm dough.


Knead gently on a lightly floured surface. Roll out and use to line a 20 cm/8 in flan ring set on a baking (cookie) sheet. Prick the base with a fork and fill with crumpled foil. Bake in a preheated oven at 200C/400F/gas mark 6 for 10 minutes. Remove the foil and return the flan to the oven for 5 minutes to dry out. Use as required.
