    I used 150ml of low fat creme fraiche and 100ml single cream, it turned out perfect and less calories! I also pre cooked the pastry for 10 mins before pouring in the liquid.  -  23 Jun 2015


    This is so tasty 😋 I used smoky bacon rather than ham. Thanks for sharing 😊  -  09 Mar 2016


    Gorgeous! It tasted great! My only criticism is that it probably should have gone on 200 C instead of 180 C but that may have been because i had quite a deep cake tin. Also it took a bit longer than 30 minutes to cook but besides from that it was very nice and the family all liked it  -  26 Jun 2015
