1 tablespoon corn flour (corn starch)

3. Warm the milk in another saucepan. Mix together the egg yolks and cornflour and add to the milk. Cook gently, stirring, until thick.

4. Remove from the heat and mix in the sugar and butter mixture. Pour into the pastry case.

5. Whisk the egg whites until stiff and fold in the caster sugar. Spread over the filling.

Excellent desert

Very tasty desert. Too much filling for one flan. Needs to be halved but leave the cornflour the same.
A great treat for children.
