Frugal Flan for Any Occasion

I am all for a no bake treat that can work as a dessert for the family or a gift to take to a party or gathering. My tried and tested flan is so simple, and it is frugal because you can get approximately 8 slices out of one (depending how greedy you are).


*prices correct on at the time of posting

  • Flan base £1.05
  • Whipping cream £1.50
  • Strawberries £0.97


  • Whisk your whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks
  • Spread evenly over the flan base
  • Slice the strawberries
  • Arrange the strawberry slices on top of the cream until it is all covered (see picture)
  • Keep refrigerated

Note: You can add vanilla essence to the cream if you prefer it a bit sweeter.

It really is that simple and cost effective to make a strawberry and cream flan. There really is no baking, and the end result looks pretty scrummy, right?

  1. Isn’t this “cheating” since it’s not made entirely from scratch? Lol Just kidding. 🤗 You remind me of the semi-homemade girl, Sandra Lee, who had a cooking show on Food Network. It was one of my favorite tv shows growing up.😊💕
