serves 4 - 6
75 g (3 oz) butter
100 g (4 oz) flour
300 ml (11 fl oz) fresh milk

method

1. Rub 50 g (2 oz) butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Mix to a dough with 2 - 3 tablespoons of milk. Roll out on a floured work surface and use to line an 18 cm (7 inch) flan ring. Bake blind at 220°C (425°F) mark 7 for 15 minutes.
2. Place the remaining milk and whole spices in a pan. Bring to the boil, remove from heat and stand 15 minutes.
3. Remove and discard spices. Mix together the sugar, baking powder, cornflour, milk and egg yolks and remaining butter and cook stirring until thickened. Cool.
4. Whisk egg whites until softly stiff and fold into custard. Pour into the pastry case. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Bake at 180°C (350°F) mark 4 for 30 minutes.
