to make the flan case

1. Line the flan ring with pastry and prick the bottom several times with a fork.

2. Cut a circle of greaseproof paper large enough to cover the base and sides.

3. Fill the tin with heavy dried beans, peas or rice, this allows the pastry to cook without losing its shape.

4. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes at 200°c (400°f) gas mark 6 untill the pastry has set.

5. Remove beans, return to oven for 3 - 4 minutes to dry out.

6. Brushing the bottom of the flan with egg yolk and allow to dry to prevent the flan filling from later sinking into the pastry and making it soggy.
