Filling for Fruit Tart as shown above
Other traditional fillings
I had a normal pan, but now have a Non-Stick one. Click on the photo to take a peek!
So use this German flan pan to make an absolutely wonderful German torte!
In the photo above, I used what I had on hand. Vanilla pudding (instant from a box), canned peaches, and some blueberries. Instead, you can use just fresh fruit and cover with a glaze.
Or, you can spread Nutella over the base and cover with strawberries.
Here are some ideas sent in by our Facebook fans:
The original recipe calls for one leaf of gelatin dissolved in 100 ml of juice.
This is commonly used in traditional German recipes, but does not dissolve as easily as the granulated gelatin. If you have leaf gelatin, you can use it here.
The conversion for gelatin is 4 leaves = 1 package gelatin = 1 tsp granulated gelatin.
Normally, I dissolved 1 package of gelatin in 2 cups of unsweetened apple juice (following package instructions). I let the gelatin thicken slightly in the fridge for about 1 hour before spooning it over the fruit.

I was amazed at all the different combinations. I must say, I love the Nutella and chocolate ones, as well as the whipped cream mixture with pineapples and mandarins.
What combination can you think of?
