If, like me, you’re a fan of flan pâtissier, then this recipe for flan au Thermomix is just what you need to create the perfect flan at home. Imagine a dense yet melt-in-your-mouth texture, a creamy custard that is not overly sweet, a delicate touch of vanilla, and a crispy crust – even better than the ones you find in bakeries!

The Secret to a Perfect Flan Pâtissier: Vanilla

One of the key ingredients that makes a flan pâtissier exceptional when using a Thermomix is a good vanilla pod. The fragrance of the vanilla infusing into the warm milk will undoubtedly drive you crazy – trust me, I speak from experience! If you want to learn how to split a vanilla pod like a pro, I even have a video to guide you. After watching it, you won’t waste a single hint of its heavenly aroma, and you won’t struggle to retrieve all the vanilla bean bits from your flans!

The Journey to Perfection

I have to be honest – it took me numerous attempts and a fair share of disappointments before I finally achieved the results I desired. I tried making this beloved dessert both with and without the Thermomix. I even followed Pierre Hermé’s recipe for the “flan des amateurs,” which uses water. However, I found it too sugary and too creamy for my taste. And when I attempted to replace the cornstarch (maïzena) with arrowroot, the texture turned out abominable!

  • If you’re in a hurry and the crispy crust isn’t a top priority for you, there’s no need to blind bake the pastry. Simply pour the custard directly onto the raw dough, and the cooking time won’t be affected.
  • If you have time to spare and want to extract the maximum flavor from your vanilla pod, start by infusing it in the milk. To do this, place the split vanilla pod and its seeds in a saucepan with the milk over medium heat. As soon as the milk comes to a boil, remove it from the heat and let it cool completely before continuing with the recipe. This step is crucial to prevent the eggs from curdling when they come into contact with the hot milk before the Thermomix has reached sufficient speed. Just remember to remove the vanilla pod before pouring the milk into your Thermomix bowl.
