What is Cuban Flan?
For those of you not familiar with this dessert, it’s 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 version is so much better. Sorry mom.
Why Cuban Flan?
The Mexican one is a little waterier and not as sweet and rich. The Cuban Flan has a thick custard flavor that is simply rich and the closest thing to a symphony of flavor. Many people enjoy eating it with a side of Shaved coconut in syrup. Others that are purist love the flavor all on it’s own.
This is such an addictive dessert filled with a creamy, custardy texture yet cool delicious and sweet.
