All about Flan
A flan is an upscale, classy custard, yes. But it is more; it is an elegant, rich dessert that can be adapted to almost any occasion. No, they are not simple to make. They are not like instant pudding or jello, but you would not want them to be. The time, effort and precision in the preparation is part of what makes flan unique, a treat to be savored whenever the opportunity should arise.
