Before choosing your flan baking pans, it is important to learn about the characteristics of the different types of molds so as not to make too many purchases. In this section, we will discuss about the different types of flan molds to enable you to choose your next flan cake pan.

Aluminium flan pans : First of all, it is important to know that aluminium molds are timeless! These are kitchen items that are found in almost every kitchen in the world. It is a material that is thick and develops a non-stick coating over time. Water bath cooking in this type of utensil is very effective. These are sturdy kitchen utensils that will remain in your kitchen for many years to come. Do not hesitate to butter well to obtain an easy demolding. It is strongly recommended to proceed with a traditional hand washing to better preserve your aluminum molds. For example, a simple detergent-free wash is all it takes to maintain all the advantages of your mold over time!

Stainless steel flan pans : Stainless steel kitchen equipment is very popular everywhere. It is a very beautiful material and its stainless steel property allows it to have a good life span. Since the stainless steel mold spreads the heat very well, your flan will look great. You can also easily remove your pudding after having well greased the mold well at the beginning. As with aluminium material, it is strongly recommended to avoid detergent on stainless steel molds to avoid damaging its coating. The stainless steel mold with the lid is even better for cooking your flans in a double boiler.

Flan or pudding is a very easy preparation and the choice of cooking equipment is up to the pastry chef. If you have a good flan cake recipe and the right mold is chosen, it is impossible to miss this egg-based preparation!

Let's discover the history of the flan or pudding before you buy your flan pan!

It is interesting to know the origins of the dishes we eat. The flan is a sweet dessert that can be found in almost every corner of the world. It is a dessert cream made from eggs and milk that once baked in the oven is given a light blondish light brown color in the middle of a beautiful golden colour above sometimes with a coating. In metonymy, the flan pastry is mainly a pastry which consists of an outer pastry crust filled with egg custard and baked. The origin of this delicious recipe comes from our dear English neighbours where the pastry flan was called Custard Tart in the Middle Ages.  This type of pie was served at the Henri IV coronation banquet in 1399 in France and was better known as Doucettys at that time.

  • After having chosen the right mold, it is now time to focus on the little details that make the difference between an experienced pastry chef and a beginner. AZ Boutique is happy to share some tips with you. For cream recipes that are generally simple, all you have to do is choose the corn flour. Butter and eggs must be at the same temperature to obtain a very consistent and homogeneous dough. Put everything in a bowl or saucepan, whip it and that’s it !
  • When you have finished preparing the mixture, it is important to let it rest for 3 to 4 hours. The ideal would be to let it rest for a night.
  • Are you a rum fan and you can't do without it? Then I have some good news for you. You can add a little white rum, preferably to give your custard a boost or even vanilla pods, vanilla sugar or vanilla extract to give it more flavour.
  • For the finishing touches to your custard, add egg yolk with a brush on your custard or a spatula to make the custard shine after baking.
