Black Currant Flan






  1. Sift the flour and cinnamon together into a bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles bread crumbs. Stir in the caster sugar. Add the egg yolk and water and mix into a firm dough. Knead lightly, then roll out thinly on a floured surface and use to line an 18cm (7 inch) flan ring.
  2. Chill the flan and pastry trimmings for 15 minutes.
  3. Put the blackcurrants and brown sugar in a pan. Cover and cook gently for 10 minutes, then uncover, increase the heat and cook until thick and syrupy. Turn onto a plate to cool.
  4. Place the fruit in the flan case. Roll out the pastry trimmings, cut into strips and make a lattice pattern over the fruit. Brush with water and sprinkle with caster sugar.
  5. Bake in preheated moderately hot oven, 200 degrees C (400 degrees F), for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden.
  6. Serve warm or cold, with whipped cream.
