Fruit Fly Flan

This hardly seems worthy of a blog, but after all, it is summer.

After our invited guests left for various ferries on Monday, we were left with our uninvited guests: the dreaded seasonal fruit flies.

So, what’s a gal to do? I checked out the fruit which was mostly still sound, cut up the good bits, and came up with what I will forever now call a Fruit Fly Flan. Since no fruit flies were harmed in making of this flan, it is even vegan-friendly.  Even better - it was also the essence of simplicity to prepare.

This is all I did: I rolled out one pie’s worth of pastry and placed it in a pie plate. Then, I laid down a tranch of fruit and covered it with a very light dusting of flour and sugar. Then, I added another layer of fruit, more flour/sugar, and another layer of fruit, and so on. Bake at 375 F till done (about 45 minutes). Serve as is, or with yoghurt or whipped cream.

Stupidly simple. My kinda pie.

  1. If there can be Shoo Fly Pie, why not Fruit Fly Pie? And yes, this is VERY worth of a blog post. YUM.
