A Super Easy Strawberry Flan

Yesterday I prepared this super easy strawberry flan (and which was a great success) and thought of sharing it with you. I know it looks very amateurish but when you've got loads of strawberries you need to think up a few ways of making use of them.



What you need is :


  • A ready made flan

  • a pack of strawberry jelly

  • around 300ml of tepid water

  • a box of fresh strawberries

  • a pack of whipped cream (such as Dolceneve)

  • around 500ml of cold milk


First I prepared the jelly mixture. The trick here is to use half the amount of water shown on the pack. That way you avoid having a soggy flan.


Then I added the amount of milk required with the Dolceneve mixture and whipped it for around 5 minutes.


Next, I cut the flan in two and poured the jelly on the bottom half. Then I spread some of the whipped cream on top of the jelly.


I replaced the top part of the flan and continued spreading the cream on the top part. Finally I cut each of the fresh strawberries in halves and decorated the flan with them. Super easy and really yummy!


Here's a photo of half of my flan. I'll leave it to your imagination to guess where the other part of the flan has gone!
