Ingredients
  • 1 tbsp Asda Seedless Raspberry Jam
  • 75g butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 150g Asda Digestive Biscuits
  • 379g can sweet condensed milk, chilled
  • 3 unwaxed lemons, grated zest of
  • 150ml double cream
  • 100ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
Method
  • Put the jam in a freezer bag and snip off the corner. Grease an 18 x 19cm flan tin and sandwich tin with butter and line with baking paper. Melt the butter in a pan, then remove from the heat.

  • Put the biscuits in a freezer bag and crush with a rolling pin until you get fine crumbs. Mix with the melted butter.

  • Press the mixture into the tin to make an even crust. Chill for at least 30 minutes.

  • Put the condensed milk, lemon zest and cream in a bowl. Whisk until just combined, then slowly drizzle in the lemon juice, whisking all the time, until the mixture thickens.

  • Pour the lemon mixture into the flan case. Pipe some jam on top, then use a cocktail stick to create a feathered effect.
