Episode : 012 - Fruit Flan (Strawberry)
File size : 4.8MB
Running duration : 10:21 minutes

Episode summary : The original recipe is actually from Blue Key Self rising flour's little recipe booklet that comes in every box of flour. As I did not have enough time to buy all the ingredients recommended in that recipe, I edited it to suit me. See below for my version of the recipe.

Use potato starch to replace the corn starch for a firmer topping. Cherries, peaches, grapes and nuts can also be used for the toppings and decoration. Listen to the podcat for more info.


I was in a hurry so all I could find was the cake tin. I should have used a nice transparent glass plate.


Tried decorating it but failed miserably. Looks like my cake is bleeding. The red stuff you see is actually strawberry extract.
