My husband has a restaurant here in town and one of our best selling dessert is the “Cuban Flan”(amongst my million other duties) I have to make about 3 every 3-4 days so it keeps me busy. I decided to “show you”how I make it. For those of you not familiar with flan,its literally a cooked custard that is then refrigerated. It is very sweet and rich but so delicious. I am part Mexican/Part Cuban so I can honestly say the Cuban flan is so much better. The Mexican one is a little waterier and not as sweet and rich. We usually serve it with a side of Shaved coconut in syrup. This is so addictive! So check out my Traditional Cuban Flan Recipe below :
1 Cup of milk
1 Can of Condensed milk
3 whole eggs
3 egg yolks
teaspoon of vanilla extract
Today I made 3 flans for our restaurant so this is what you will see done 🙂
Once it’s done cooking refrigerate for a few hours until cold and then cut along edge and flip over onto serving dish.
*You can use a pie dish or any other rounded cooking dish as long as it’s covered on the top.
This is a rich dessert that is sure to be the hit at any party. It’s intense and unique flavors make it an addictive treat! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
