This recipe uses a flan tin, which is perfect for a variety of different dishes such as quiches, tarts and cheesecakes. Flan tins are available in many different shapes and sizes, from the simple round-shaped tin to a loving heart-shaped tin. You’ll also find that most common tins available on the market are made of traditional tin-ware, non-stick coated aluminium and non-stick coated steel or silicone. Providing the tin you choose is made to a high quality, it should be perfect for baking your delicious treats and last for years to come. It’s worth remembering that flan tins are available with loose bases as well as fixed bases. This is because loose bases are really helpful in ensuring that flaky pastry crusts do not break when they are removed from the tin. Fixed base tins are more likely to be used for self-crusting quiches, baked cheese cakes or any recipes that have a very liquid mix. For more information on quiche tins visit http://tablepride.co.nz .
