(h)apple and vanilla flan cover

Apples are at their seasonal best so why not try this delicious flan recipe today.

Sieve the flour and icing sugar into a bowl and, using the tips of your fingers, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add 1 1⁄2 eggs and the milk, then form into a dough with your hands. Wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. (Or, you can use ready-rolled puff pastry, if you prefer.)

Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Core and chop 8 apples, then toss in half the lemon juice. Place in a saucepan, add the light brown sugar and vanilla extract, and roll out the pastry and line a loose-bottom 35cm x 21cm (13in x 8in) tin. Prick the base and chill for 15 minutes. Trim the edges of the pastry with a sharp knife.

Cover the pastry with nonstick baking paper and fill with baking beans. Bake for 15 minutes, remove the parchment and beans and cook for a further 5-10 minutes, until golden. Leave the pastry to cool.

Whisk 1 1⁄2 eggs into the purée, then spoon into the case. Core and thinly slice the remaining apples, toss in the rest of the lemon juice, then fan the apple out over the purée. Put in the oven for 30 minutes.

Heat the apricot jam in the microwave for 30-45 seconds, until runny, then brush over the flan. Serve hot or cold.
