Alan Silverwood individual sponge flan with raised base is pencil-fluted for perfect home-made single-portion sponge flan cases. Hugely popular in the sixties, these clever crimped flan sets are making a comeback. Each comes with a separate loose base and special "top-hat" sponge base. Bake a classic sponge mixture in the case, and then turn upside down for a perfect sponge flan base. Fill with your own creation of fresh fruits set in jelly, crème fraîche or fool for a delightfully fresh dessert. The flan tin is 3 1/2" in diameter. 

All Silverwood bakeware is made at the family-owned manufacturing company in Birmingham in the UK. They pride themselves on producing the highest quality products. Unlike most bakeware in the UK, Alan Silverwood bakeware is made from costlier aluminium rather than steel. This is because aluminium is a far better heat conductor and results in more even baking. To seal the surface, the aluminium is anodised to make Silverwood's unique anodised aluminium alloy Alsil©, famous for its heat spread technology.

The bakeware improves with age. Unlike products coated with non-stick (PTFE), which deteriorate with use, frequent use of the Silverwood products will enhance their release properties. After each use, the anodised surface captures and retains a microscopic film of lubricant which builds up to form a "Patina". This is visible as a slight discoloration in the surface of the bakeware - it is entirely safe.  Avoid using sharp utensils and knives on the surface.

As a general rule, greasing with natural fats (e.g. butter, lard) is preferable to using manufactured fats (margarine, etc). Olive oil tends to stick, and is best avoided, but Ground-Nut (peanut) oil has excellent release properties and works well with most recipes.
