This fabulous baked custard tart was one of those recipes I stumbled across and just *knew* it would be in my baking future. It comes courtesy of the No Pinning Allowed blog, who named it Belgian Flan, a much more alluring name. If you want to see the original it is here: http://nopinningallowed.wordpress.com/2012/06/08/recipe-belgian-flan/
I saw it and made it immediately. It was consumed just as rapidly by The Hungry Dad, a man with a passion for custard. It is a matter of chucking everything into a bowl, mixing & baking – it couldn’t be easier.
By some baking magic it turns into a divine custard tart that can be sliced when cold. Or eaten directly from the flan tin you baked it in… Misses 4 & 6 helped make it and for such a simple recipe it packs a lovely sweet punch. I did reduce the amount of sugar slightly.
2 cups of milk
¾ cup caster sugar
1 cup self raising flour
splash vanilla extract
LET’S GET TO IT: Preheat oven to 170C. Whisk everything together in a bowl until combined. Pour into ceramic or glass pie tin. Bake for between 30-40 minutes depending on your oven. Cool on bench for ten minutes before placing in fridge to cool. Sprinkle with icing sugar to serve.
