Coronation Quiche Recipe


  • To make the dough:
    • 150 g flour
    • 25 g cold butter cut into cubes
    • 25 g lard
    • 2 tablespoons of milk
    • A pinch of salt
  • To make the filling:
    • 130 ml milk
    • 200 ml of crème fraîche or fresh cream for cooking
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
    • 100 g of grated cheddar cheese
    • 180gr cooked and chopped spinach
    • 75 g broad beans
    • Salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Para hacer la masa:
    • Mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the butter and shortening and rub the mixture with your fingers until you get a sandy texture. Add the milk, little by little, to form the dough. Cover and refrigerate for 30 to 45 minutes.
    • Roll out the dough – slightly larger than the quiche pan – on a floured surface. Put the dough in the pan, cover and let it rest for half an hour in the refrigerator.
    • Preheat the oven to 190 °C. Line the dough with parchment paper and add some baking weights. Bake the dough for a quarter of an hour, remove the paper and weights and set aside. Reduce the oven temperature to 160°.
  • To make the filling:
    • Whisk together the milk, cream, eggs, tarragon and salt and pepper. Sprinkle some of the grated cheese over the baked crust, top with the chopped spinach and beans, then pour in the milk mixture.
    • Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until set and lightly browned.
