How To Make frangipani flan (tart)

  • 1
    Make a pastry case (or use store-bought) to line a 7 inch removable bottom tart pan and place the pastry in the tart pan.
  • 2
    Spread the jam on the uncooked pastry case. Sometimes I add a tad more jam if it looks skimpy. You need a very thin layer, however.

    Cream the butter and sugar in a small bowl.
  • 4
    Beat in the egg, then,
  • 5
    Stir in the ground almonds, almond essence and flour.
  • 6
    Transfer filling mixture to the tart case, spreading evenly.
  • 7
    Bake in the center of a 325 degree oven for about 30 minutes.
  • 8
    Place on rack to cool; remove ring and frost with the icing.
  • 9
    Sprinkle sliced or slivered almonds on icing for garnish
