  1. To make the pastry, tip the flour and butter into a bowl, then rub together with your fingertips until completely mixed and crumbly. Add 8 tbsp cold water, then bring everything together with your hands until just combined. Roll into a ball and use straight away or chill for up to 2 days. The pastry can also be frozen for up to a month.

  2. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface to a round about 5cm larger than a 25cm tin. Use your rolling pin to lift it up, then drape over the tart case so there is an overhang of pastry on the sides. Using a small ball of pastry scraps, push the pastry into the corners of the tin. Chill in the fridge or freezer for 20 mins. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6.

  3. In a small roasting tin, drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put the tomatoes in a low shelf of the oven.

  4. Lightly prick the base of the tart with a fork, line the tart case with a large circle of greaseproof paper or foil, then fill with baking beans. Blind-bake the tart for 20 mins, remove the paper and beans, then continue to cook for 5-10 mins until biscuit brown.

  5. When you remove the tart case from the oven, take out the tomatoes, too.

  6. While the tart is cooking, beat the eggs in a large bowl. Gradually add the cream, then stir in the basil and season. When the case is ready, sprinkle half the cheese over the base, scatter over the tomatoes, pour over the cream mix, then finally scatter over the rest of the cheese. Bake for 20-25 mins until set and golden brown. Leave to cool in the case, trim the edges of the pastry, then remove from the tin. Scatter over the remaining basil and serve in slices.

Lovely quiche! My base was a little bit soggy, but it was still very, very tasty! Can't wait to bake it again!

Really delicious! I added smoked bacon as well. Will definitely be making this again.

I've been making this as a family favourite since it was first in the GF magazine. I never change a thing, but I reckon this time I'll try it with lower fat cream & save the calories for dessert.

So easy, a bit of waiting for the pastry to cool and then blind bake, but if you've got the time and have other things on the go in the kitchen, it's the perfect recipe. I took it to a Jubilee lunch and it was the first thing to disappear from the table!

This is the third time I've made this and it's yummie every time

WOW! Fried some bacon and red onions and added to mix. I have never made quiche before but I will certainly be making this again.

used this recipe a few times now, used sausage and sweetcorn for the wee ones and salmon and broccoli for the adults . all the family love it, very easy to use and follow..

yes you can freeze quiche, wait until completely cool then wrap in plastic, individual pieces are better, then when you want to eat them, heat them in the oven, not microwave as pastry will go soggy

Simple enough recipe but it doesn't have a great deal of flavour, so it might be worth adding a few ingredients.

Very tasty. Used half fat cream the first time I made it. The second time I used half the amount of cream and topped up with milk made it very light! A huge hit with everyone!

I made this quiche for the first time and it has come out beautifully! I made a wholemeal pastry crust and added watercress and smoked paprika to the filling. The recipe is etremely easy to follow, so anyone new to cooking should't have any trouble with this! Result! :)

This quiche is really delicious. I used 4% cream though but it tasted rich and just lovely. Might through in some shallots next time. Served it with a rocket salad with ovenroasted aubergines, tomatoes, pine nuts and raisins in balsamico.
