Hi all,

Just a quick question, Who puts flour in their quiche?
I made a quiche last night and just googled the recipe as I did not have my cook book with me, and the recipe said to use flour - self raising flour.
I have never put flour in my quiches before and it has made this one very heavy. Must admit I will not be making this recipe again as I did not enjoy it, but I am interested to know who else put flour in there quiche. And if so, does it always comes out heavy?

Thanks

Kels

Yeah Quiche would be one of my favs! - zucchini quiche.
A couple of tablespoons ok, yeah this one had 1 cup. 6 eggs, 1 cup flour, 1 cup cheese and 2 cups of milk. It didnt raise or anything. I must of just picked the worst quiche recipe ever! just my luck.

Years ago a flatmate used a recipe for quiche with flour. It was a no pastry recipe.
It was not too bad, but he had just that and macaroni cheese in his repertoire...[xx(]

I do a crustless one that has a bit of flour in it, self raising, other than that, standard quiche is pastry base, bake blind and add eggs, milk, and the rest of the filling ingredients. I made one on weekend for a shared lunch and it was very good. The crustless one I do also is very good.
BTW I never buy SR flour, just plain and add 1 tsp baking powder per cup of flour to make it SR.

I also regularly make Alison Holst's self-crusting quiche. Much easier than bothering to make pastry first. The recipe has 3 eggs, one cup of milk and half a cup of self-raising flour in the 'batter'. (I also don't use self raising flour - just standard flour with baking powder added.)

Mine never turns out heavy. I wonder if your self raising flour was too old and had lost its raise?

Alison Holst's Self-Crusting Vegetable Quiche

1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp butter
3 med potatoes, cooked
3 eggs
3/4 tsp salt [that's three quarters not three or four!]
1 cup milk
Half cup self raising flour
1 cup drained cooked asparagus, mushrooms, spinach or broccoli
1 cup grated tasty cheese

Cook onion and garlic in butter until tender. Add cubed potatoes and cook a minute longer. Cool, then stir in eggs, salt and milk which have been beaten with a fork until mixed. Pour into a large bowl containing the flour and stir with a fork until just combined. Add the other vegetables and cheese.

Pour into a buttered metal pan with a solid (not push-out) base. Garnish as desired. Bake 220 deg C for 20 - 30 mins until lightly browned and set in the centre. Leave to stand 5 mins after removing from the oven.

Actually I use the same ingredients but my technique is different. I fry the onions etc in a heavy cast-iron pan, turn off the heat and throw in all the random pre-cooked vegetables I can find until the pan is almost brimming, pour on the egg/milk/flour/cheese mix and put the whole thing in the oven.

The heat already in the pan shortens the cooking time a little and I save on dishes because I then take the whole pan to the table and use it as the serving dish. A cast iron pan sitting on a chopping board on the table looks pleasantly rustic.

This recipe is a great way to use up left-over roast or boiled vegetables from last night's dinner. Served for lunch with a spoonful of chutney and/or a green salad and/or crusty bread your guests will think you've gone to lots of trouble but it's actually extremely quick and easy. ;)
