Former chef of Her Majesty and Princess of Wales, Darren McGrady often shares details of his palace past, talking about favorite recipes of Her Majesty and Their Highnesses. So, before Christmas, he talked about how to cook the perfect holiday pudding that any Windsor would appreciate, and later shared two interesting recipes for making banana bread - one for adults and one for children (see also: Queen's Recipes: How to Make Your Favorite Banana Bread Elizabeth). The first instruction was based on the tastes of Elizabeth and Prince Charles, the second based on the preferences of Prince William and Harry and Princess Beatrice and Eugenie when they were young. McGrady worked at Buckingham Palace for 11 years and devoted four more years to serving at Kensington Palace, and during this time he managed to thoroughly study the wishes of virtually every BCS member.

This time, in his YouTube tutorial, the chef shared how to make a banana flan. According to Darren, the "super-light dessert" consists of banana cream in a confectionery shell, garnished with sliced bananas and apricot jelly. “You can't send 5-year-old Prince William a rose petal panna cotta and lavender shortbread, can you? He does not yet have such taste preferences,”explained McGrady.

But, according to the chef, the young sons of Wales immediately rushed to the kitchen after leaving school to see their cook, because he always knew how to please the tastes of Their Highnesses. “When the boys had to be at home, Princess Diana would put banana cake on the menu. And then she wrote H or W at the top to tell me who was coming,”Darren McGrady said. “On Friday, the boys came back from school to Kensington Palace and came to the kitchen asking,“What's for dinner, Darren? "They saw a banana cake somewhere from the side and shouted: 'Hurray!'"

For the princes' favorite dessert, McGrady advises stocking up on cornstarch, which saves time. Flan is a typical French dish with a dough base and delicate filling, to which you must definitely add natural vanilla.

Unlike many variations, Darren suggests putting bananas on top of the cake for finishing touches, starting from the outside and working towards the center, overlapping the circles. After creating a beautiful layered composition, the royal chef adds caramel icing on top, which is both practical and delicious. It seems that caramel is McGrady's secret ingredient in almost all desserts addressed to the younger generations of the Windsor.
