Glazed Orange and Lemon Flan Recipe

Glazed Orange and Lemon Flan Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 6

1 orange, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
Boiling water
250g caster (superfine) sugar
75g ground almonds

1 large egg
Finely grated rind of 1 small lemon

1 Sweet Pastry Flan Case, uncooked


Put the orange and lemon slices in a bowl. Cover with boiling water and leave to stand for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, mix 50g of the sugar with the almonds, egg and lemon rind. Spoon into the flan case (pie shell) and bake in a preheated oven at 200C/400F/gas mark 6 for 25 minutes until set. Leave to cool.

Meanwhile, simmer the orange and lemon slices in the soaking water for 5 minutes. Drain, reserving the liquid, and dry the slices on kitchen paper (paper towels). Strain 300 ml of the cooking liquid into a pan. Add the remaining sugar and heat gently, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil for 4 minutes. Add the fruit slices and simmer for a further 3 minutes. Leave to cool in the syrup.

Lift the slices out of the syrup and arrange attractively over the flan. Boil the remaining syrup until reduced by half, then brush over the top of the flan. Leave to cool, then chill until ready to serve.
