225 g (8 oz) digestive biscuits
100 g (4 oz) butter

filling

25 g (1 oz) sugar
25 g (1 oz) plain flour
10 g (2 tsp) cornflour
2 large eggs, separated

25 g (1 oz) butter
4 oz plain chocolate, finely chopped
10 ml (2 tsp) rum (optional)
100 g (4 oz) caster sugar

method

1. Crush the biscuits until they resemble fine breadcrumbs.

2. Melt the butter and stir into the biscuits. Press the biscuits over the base and sides of a 20 cm (8 in) ovenproof flan dish.

3. Blend together the sugar, flour, cornflour, egg yolks and a little of the milk. Heat the remaining milk.

4. Stir the hot milk on to the flour mixture and whisk well. Return the mixture to the pan. Heat gently, stirring until the mixture thickens.

5. Stir in the butter, chocolate and rum if used. Stir until smooth. Pour into the biscuit pie shell. Chill.

6. About 1/2 hour before serving, making the meringue topping. Whisk the egg whites until stiff. Whisk in half the sugar, a teaspoonful at a time. Add the remaining sugar and whisk well.

7. Spread the meringue over the chocolate flan. Swirl decoratively with a teaspoon.

8. Bake in the oven at 200°C (400°F) Gas 6 for 5 - 7 minutes, until the meringue is golden brown.

9. Sprinkle with a little ground cinnamon, and serve hot or warm.
