It’s still before midnight in Cali where CB is so I’m just going to pretend I made it in under the wire. I’ll be honest, I’ve never had flan before, but it didn’t sound that appetizing. Cold baked eggs? ummm thanks but no thanks. I was planning on making it yesterday just so I could say I had made it, but the pile of dishes got in my way. After looking at all the flan today I was even less enthused it looks like baked eggs. I honestly thought I might not make it, it was 10pm and I was still debating it. Then my hubs walked into the room. I had promised him dessert last night and had never made anything, he was looking for dessert. I told him about my meh feeling about flan. I was hoping for him to say I don’t like flan because then I would have felt like I was off the hook, but nooooooo he couldn’t do that. He got all excited and told me he LOVED flan. Guess I’m making flan.
Actually, the flan was really easy to make, I made baby flans in these random short ramekins I have (thus the flat looking flan) and, like everyone else I had too much flan mixture and even after doubling the caramel I was short. So the last bunch got dumped in a 4*4 pan and made without caramel.
The end result, it looks pretty and smells good, but I’m just not a fan of flan hehe G on the other hand loved it and ate his little baby flan in under a minute. The dog also got a taste when G wasn’t paying attention and she seemed to love it too.
