This Lime Raspberry Flan has all the hallmarks of a quintessential Summer dessert - light and citrusy with fresh fruit. Flan is made with a custard base – similar to creme Anglaise, then infused with flavor. This recipe uses a Thermomix to create the vanilla and lime custard, poured over frozen raspberries and baked, garnished with fresh raspberries. The result is a sweet and tart tang, with crumbly pastry that need not be served with anything else!
