Simple and beautiful flaugnarde with Mama Steph

French Flan with fruit

Yield : For 6 to 8 people


2-3 cups fruit (berries and cherries work well)

1¼ cups milk

1/3 cup granulated sugar

3 eggs

1 Tb vanilla extract

1/8 tsp salt

½ cup flour (scooped and leveled)

1/3 cup granulated sugar

Powdered sugar in a shaker or small sifter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter a baking dish. (I used a 8.5? round ceramic tart pan)

Place the milk, 1/3 cup sugar, the eggs, vanilla, salt, and flour in your blender jar in the order in which they are listed. Cover and blend at top speed for 1 minute.

Pour a ¼-inch layer of batter in the baking dish or pie plate. Set over moderate heat (in heated oven or on warm burner) for a minute or two until a film of batter has set in the bottom of the dish. Remove from heat. Spread the fruit over the batter and sprinkle on 1/3 cup sugar. Pour on the rest of the batter and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon.

Place in middle position of preheated oven and bake for about an hour. It is done when it has puffed and browned, and a needle or knife plunged into its center comes out clean. Sprinkle top of the flaugnarde with powdered sugar just before bringing it to the table. (This need not be served hot, but is usually at least still somewhat warm. However, I still think it's great when cooled. It will sink down slightly as it cools.)
