Strawberry Almond Flan

With its intimidatingly huge strawberries sitting prettily atop, the Strawberry Almond Flan from Hanis Cafe and Bakery was definitely an eye-catcher. Sadly, it did not leave quite an impact taste wise. The strawberries were fresh, juicy and sweet. But the layer of artificially coloured and flavoured jelly spread onto the strawberries destroyed the ‘healthiness’ of the tart. The fillings of the tart was a far cry from what we had expected. The looks of it seemed to suggest apple fillings but what we got was a moist buttery sponge, with traces of nuts. The tart base had the same buttery taste and aroma, only that texture wise, it was slightly harder. Overall, the Strawberry Almond Flan was just a very sweet pastry with no gradient in taste or texture. Looks can be deceiving.
