Our 2 rhubarb plants have gone mad this year, so I’m trying to find new things to do with them. This recipe is so easy to make, the rhubarb and vanilla are delicious together and the flavour reminds me of rhubarb and custard sweets. The only problem is when its cut, it looks like a dogs breakfast, so show the flan to your guests before cutting it. It’s so much more delicious than it looks.
|Shortcrust pastry either homemade or bought. |
200ml Double Cream.

Chop the rhubarb into 2cm pieces and scatter over the pastry in a single layer.
Mix the eggs, cream, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and pour over the rhubarb.
Bake for approx 40 minutes.
Serve with crème fraiche or ice-cream.
