  • Serves: 6

  • Cooking time:

An amazing pud that's as clever as it's delicious - the meringue insulates the ice cream, keeping it from melting and baking it in a hot oven seals the surface.


  • 500ml strawberry ice cream, shaped into a block
  • 200g flan case
  • 1 quantity meringue mixture


  1. Preheat the oven to 230C/450F/gas 8.
  2. Put the ice cream on top of the flan and cut around the edge, leaving a 5cm border.
  3. Put the flan on a baking sheet and spread the meringue over the ice cream, leaving no gaps.
  4. Bake immediately for 3 to 4 mins until golden brown. Serve at once.
