DIRECTIONS

  • ----To make the pastry----.
  • If you have a food processor, put all the ingredients for the pastry into the bowl and process until the mixture is like fine breadcrumbs.
  • If you are making the pastry by hand, put the flour and icing sugar together in a bowl.
  • Rub in the butter with your fingertips until you have a crumb-like mixture.
  • Pat the mixture around the sides and bottom of an 8ö flan dish.
  • Put the flan in the refrigerator for at least half an hour.
  • Bake in moderate oven- (350°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4)- for about 20 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown.
  • ----To make the filling----.
  • Put the orange rinds in a large bowl.
  • Beat the eggs in a jug.
  • Add the butter and sugar to the orange rind, and sieve in the beaten eggs.
  • Mix all together and rest the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.
  • Stir until the butter has melted and the sugar dissolved, and then take the bowl off the heat.
  • Stir the orange juice into the buttery mixture.
  • DO NOT be tempted to add the juice along with the rind at the previous stage- it just doesn't work!
  • Pour the mixture of butter, sugar, eggs, orange rind and juice into the baked flan case, and carefully put the flan back in the oven.
  • Bake at 350°F/180°C/Gas Mark 4 for fifteen minutes, or until the filling is just set to touch.
  • Take out of the oven and serve either warm or cool.
