How to Make Chocolate Crumb Flan

  • Mix together the crumbs, castor sugar, butter, cocoa and cinnamon with your fingertips. Press into a deep pie dish.
  • Press a plate (a little smaller than the pie dish) on top of the crumb mixture so that it forms a smooth, even crust. Reserve excess crumbs for decoration. Chill for at least an hour.
  • Break the China grass into small pieces. Soak it in 1/2 cup of hot water until quite soft.
  • Heat and stir till dissolved. Add milk and sugar and bring to boil.
  • Remove from the heat and mix in the essence. Keep aside till lukewarm but be careful that it does not set.
  • Pour into a cooled flan case. Chill to set.
  • Sprinkle reserved crumbs on the pudding in a decorative design.
  • Arrange sliced banana and halved glace cherries.
