Ingredients

240g tinned pears, drained

40g ground almond

10 tsp table-top sweetener

2 medium eggs

150ml soya milk

1 ½ tbsp soya single cream

½ tsp vanilla bean paste

1 tsp brandy / whisky

Almond flakes, to decorate

Low fat spread to grease

Icing sugar to sprinkle lightly, if preferred

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease an ovenproof dish with low fat spread. Slice the tinned pears and arrange them neatly in the greased dish.  Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, whisk two eggs thoroughly until aerated and add the sweetener and vanilla bean paste into the mixture. Then add the ground almond and mix until integrated. Pour in the soya milk and soya single cream whilst stirring and lastly add the brandy or whisky.
  3. Pour the entire mixture on top of the pears in the dish, and place in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until cooked. After 25 minutes, sprinkle some almond flakes onto the flan and return to the oven for a further 15 minutes.  Use a skewer to check the centre of the flan, which should come out clean if cooked.
