Get ready to assemble a feast that would make King Charles himself swoon. Here's our take on the royally delicious Coronation Quiche recipe, for six guests, using a 20cm flan tin.

  • 125g all-purpose flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 25g chilled butter, cubed
  • 25g lard
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Alternatively, you may opt for a 250g block of ready-made shortcrust pastry
  • 125ml milk
  • 175ml double cream
  • 2 medium-sized eggs
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped tarragon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 100g grated cheddar cheese
  • 180g cooked spinach, chopped
  • 60g cooked broad beans or soya beans

A Royal Method:
  1. Start by making the pastry. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl, and add the butter and lard. Using your fingertips, gently rub the mixture together until it resembles breadcrumbs fit for a noble court.
  2. Gradually add the milk, forming a dough fit for a king. Wrap it up and allow it to rest in the fridge for 30-45 minutes – even royal dough needs its beauty sleep.
  3. Sprinkle some flour on your workspace and roll out the dough into a regal circle, slightly larger than the tin and around 5mm thick.
  4. Line the tin with your majestic pastry, ensuring there are no holes for the filling to escape. Let the pastry rest in the fridge for another 30 minutes, giving it the royal treatment it deserves.
  5. Preheat your Neff Slide&Hide® oven to 190°C, a temperature befitting the coronation quiche.
  6. To blind bake the pastry, line it with parchment paper and fill it with baking beans. Bake for 15 minutes before removing the parchment and beans.
  7. Turn down the oven to a stately 160°C.
  8. Whisk together the milk, cream, eggs, herbs, and seasoning, creating a mixture that even the Queen Consort would adore.
  9. Scatter half of the grated cheese on the pastry base. Top with spinach, beans, and herbs before pouring the royal mixture over the filling.
  10. If needed, give the filling a gentle stir, making sure to maintain the integrity of your regal pastry case.
  11. Add the remaining cheese as a crowning touch. Place the quiche in your Neff Slide&Hide® oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until it's set and reaches a golden, kingly perfection.
