How to Make a Flan Case Sponge

Making a flan case sponge at home is not at all a tough task. All that you need to make a perfect sponge at home is a flan mould – a special mould that is raised from the centre. Just blend the eggs and sugar and add flour to them. After properly mixing all the three ingredients, bake them for 20 minutes in a preheated oven and you are done.
