ingredients

serves 4
225 g (8 oz) plain flour
pinch of salt
100 g (4 oz) margarine
2 - 3 tablespoons cold water

for the filling

2 tablespoons jam
600 ml (1 pint) milk
50 g (2 oz) caster sugar, plus extra to sprinkle
4 egg yolks
few drops vanilla essence
1 teaspoon grated nutmeg

method

1. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl. Cut the margarine into small pieces and rub in until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.

2. Add the water and mix to form a dough. Knead very lightly, roll out on a lightly floured surface and use to line a 20 cm (8 in) fluted flan ring placed on a baking tray.

3. Prick the base with a fork and bake blind in a moderately hot oven for 10 minutes.

4. Spread the jam evenly over the pastry. Heat the milk over a low heat until lukewarm, then beat in the sugar, egg yolks and vanilla.

5. Pour over the jam, sprinkle the nutmeg on top and bake in a moderate oven for about 1 hour until firm. Serve either hot or cold, sprinkled with a little extra caster sugar.
