Raspberry Creme Patissiere Flan

This recipe is perfect if you need to make a quick dessert but you're feeling a bit lazy. It doesn't require much effort and is stilll yummy! I used a shop bought flan case (lazy as I am) and filled it with home made creme patissiere (vanilla pastry cream to those of us who like things simple). I topped the cream with raspberries and a sprinkling of icing sugar. Simple and scrumptious.

Creme Patissiere

  • 1 ¼ cups whole milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. In a small saucepan, warm the milk over low heat until it is just hot enough to steam.
  2. While the milk is warming, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, flour, and cornstarch until the mixture is completely smooth.
  3. Once the milk is steaming, add half of it, whisking constantly, to the egg mixture.
  4. Add the milk and eggs back into the hot milk, continue stirring, and heat it for 1-2 minutes, until the custard reaches 170F on a digital thermometer and is very thick.
  5. Remove from the heat, stir in the vanilla extract, and chill before filling pastry.
