Fruit Flan

About Awesome Travel Stuff
This is a really tasty, dead simple dessert cake, first located in its wheaty version in a childrens' cookery book. It has been consumed with enthusiasm by persons of all ages. You can vary it by using different types of fruit and different toppings. A favourite is apples, with cinnamon and sugar on top. Peaches, with a water icing drizzled over the top while the cake is still hot, is also a very nice combination. (Water icing is icing sugar mixed with cold water to make a dribbly consistency). After a summer trip to the Okanagan you’ll have a variety of juicy, fresh fruit to choose from.
