Honey, Almond and Orange Flan

No ratings yet
Pastry is very high in calories, but this pudding's unusual flan case is made out of almonds and dried dates bound together with honey - the most ancient of all sweeteners. It is based on a traditional Arabic recipe and is very easy to make, provided you have a blender or food processor.

Prep Time 15 minutes


  • 8 oz unblanched almonds
  • 6 oz dried dates
  • 3 tablespoons honey

for the filling

  • 4 large oranges
  • 1 lb fromage frais


  • Put the almonds in a food processor or blender and process them until almost smooth. Add the dates and blend again until they are finely chopped. Pour in the honey and process thoroughly once again.
  • Press the mixture into an 8 in (200 mm) flan dish and put in the refrigerator while making the filling.
  • Finely grate the rind of 2 oranges and add to the fromage frais. Peel all the oranges, removing the white pith, and cut across the core into slices.
  • Spread half the fromage frais over the base of the flan. Cover with most of the orange slices and top with the remaining fromage frais, spreading it evenly.
  • Finally, arrange the reserved orange slices on top and chill until ready to serve.
