Fruit flan recipe (gluten and egg free)

Gluten and egg free vegan fruit flan recipe

It is summer time now in the United Kingdom.

Chef Jeena will be cooking lots of summer food recipes for you to enjoy, so keep visiting us.

Chef has baked a gluten free vegan fruit flan recipe that is simple to bake, delicious to eat and looks amazing when placed on the table for a dessert.

The flan base is a combination of dairy free margarine, sugar, rice flour and ground almonds with a little ground flax seed to help bind the mixture together.

Chef topped the gluten free flan base with some dairy free cream using fresh vanilla pods, but you could also use Chefs vegan whipped cream recipe.

The fruit topping was made of fresh strawberries and blueberries and it tasted wonderful.

This flan did not last very long in Jeenas Kitchen, so make sure you get a piece of this fruit flan recipe to eat yourself or else everybody just might devour it before you get a chance to eat some yourself-enjoy.

Ingredients for chefs fruit flan recipe

How to make a gluten free vegan fruit flan recipe

Cream margarine and 100g caster sugar together using a mixer. Add almonds, rice flour, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum, flax powder and corn starch - mix well.

The flan mixture will start to come together very thick - start adding the milk gradually.

Picture of tablespoons of ground flaxseed and cornflour.

Add 80g of sugar and vanilla essence - mix well.

Pour into a greased and floured flan tin - I only needed 3/4 of the flan base mixture and baked some of my vegan mini cupcakes with the left over mixture.

Place into a hot oven at gas mark 6 and 1/2 (in between gas mark 6 and 7) for 25 minutes - do not open the oven door until 20 minutes has past.

Leave the flan base in the hot oven tin for 8-10 minutes before removing the flan from the oven tin. Leave on a cooling rack to cool down completely.

Once cool spread with fresh dairy free cream and top with fresh fruit.

Enjoy Chefs gluten free vegan flan recipe.
