I just gotta share this one - blueberries were on special, and damn, but this is good:

Here is the original recipe:
Flan:

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/3 cup butter, softened

2 egg whites

1tsp pure vanilla extract

3 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen (not thawed)

Topping:

2 tbsp all purpose flour

2 cups plain yogurt

1 egg, lightly beaten

2/3 cup granulated sugar

2 tsp lemon or orange zest

1 tsp vanilla extract

1. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, butter, egge whites and vanilla and mix well. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch spring form or flan pan and sprinkle with blueberries.

2. In a bowl, sprinkle flour over yogurt. Add egg, sugar, zest and vanilla and mix untial smooth. Pour mixture over berries.

3. Bake in 350F oven for 60 to 70 minutes or until the topping turn golden. Serve warm or cold.

Now here is what you should *actually* do:
Use a graham cracker crust instead of what they suggest (1 1/2 C graham cracker crumbs, 6 tbspn melted butter, 1/4 C sugar - although I also added a little bit of egg, because it was too dry, and baked it for about 10 minutes on its own, which is not at all what you're supposed to do, but it turned out nicely anyway)

3 C of blueberries is a little too much for a 9 inch pan, and the topping recipe could be increased slightly.

I used fat free yoghurt, because that's what I had, so it ends up quite light and delicious.

Mmmmmmmmmm. It was a huge hit!

Everytime I hear "Flan" I think of final fantasy. Looks good, by the by. Us Ravens love berries.

I'm confused - what does Flan have to do with either final fantasy or Rhapsody?

According to the definition, flan is sort of like custard or creme caramel... My recipe is more like a custard pie - only not as rich as most custards or creme caramels.

Anyway, call it what you like, I made it again this weekend, and I have enough blueberries for another one, I think. MMmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Blueberry season! Woot!

Rhapsody: A musical adventure wasn't quite as well received as FFVII, so I couldn't find a wiki page specifically on a simple attack - but Flan was one of the MC's attacks, big flan fell from the sky and smashed your foes >=D

oh hey blueberries are getting in season soon huh. That's good, maybe I'll give this recipe a shot, looks nummy! Hey Jade, you should totally send me some!

*lol* I totally have this image of trying to send flan in the mail - you open up the box at the end to a giant soggy mess of custardy-blueberry Splat.

Om nom nom.

Custardy-Blueberry Splat sounds like something you could get at Sonic. Marketing opportunity!

I wonder what elemental spell one would use to kill a blueberry flan? Maybe someone should write the FinalFantasy peoples and tell them to make a consumption spell...or allow you to summon Fat Chocobo and use him to eat all flans in your way. But then, there wouldn't be any flan left..hmm *ponders in a corner*
