What you'll need:

9-inch flan or quiche tin


For the quiche pastry recipe:

200g plain flour, plus some extra for dusting

100g softened butter, with a little extra for greasing

A splash of cold water

A pinch of salt


For the quiche filling recipe:

4 large eggs

120ml whole milk

120ml double cream

125g cheddar cheese

Salt and pepper, to taste

  1. To make your pastry, sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the butter, rubbing it in with your fingertips until the mixture crumbles. Pour in a tablespoon of water at a time, until you’ve added enough to form a firm dough. Then, wrap it in cling film and leave it in the fridge to rest for around half an hour.
  2. Roll out your dough into a circle a few centimetres larger than your pastry tin – making sure you flour the surface and rolling pin.
  3. Grease your 9-inch tin with butter and transfer over the rolled-out pastry. Using your hands, gently press the dough into the tin and line the base and sides. Trim off any excess from the sides and use it to patch up any gaps. Leave to chill while you preheat the oven to 190°C/170°C Fan/Gas Mark 5.
  4. Blind bake the pastry case for around 20 minutes, while covered in baking paper and beans. Then remove the beans and paper and bake for a few extra minutes.

Top tip: Blind baking is the process of pre-baking pastry before adding the filling. This is a must when filling your crust with an unbaked filling as the moisture can make the crust soggy before it has the time to bake.

  1. Take out your pastry case and lower the temperature of the oven to 160°F/140°C/Gas Mark 3.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, cream, salt and pepper until fully combined.
  3. Sprinkle over your cheese and any other fillings (e.g. red onion, pepper, ham), then pour in the eggy mixture.

Top tip: Any raw fillings should be pre-cooked before being added to the quiche.

  1. Bake your quiche until the centre is just about set – around 45-55 minutes – and top with any extra ingredients (such as herbs, or an extra helping of cheese!) before slicing and serving.
