Instructions:
  1. Sift flour and salt into the mixing bowl of the stand mixer. Add cubes of butter and mix on slow with a paddle attachment until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the icing sugar and briefly mix.
  2. Briefly whisk egg yolk and water in a small bowl before adding to the pastry mix. Mix on slow until the pastry forms. This shouldn’t take long at all, less than a minute – you don’t want to overwork the pastry.
  3. Wrap the pastry in cling film and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes until firm but not hard.
  4. Grease 1 x 23 cm ( 9 inch ) loose bottomed flan tin.
  5. Roll out your pastry to about the thickness of a £1 coin ( ⅛ inch ) making sure the pastry circle is large enough for the diameter of your flan tin plus twice its depth.
  6. Carefully line your tin with your pastry.
  7. Pop in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 200℃ / 400℉ / Gas Mark 6.
  9. Whisk together the eggs, cream, plain flour and creme de cassis until smooth.
  10. Place the elderberries in the pastry case and pour over the creamy filling.
  11. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of caster sugar before placing in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes until baked.
