What is Flan?
Flan is an oven-baked caramel custard desert that is very popular in Puerto Rico, Spain and Mexico among many other Latin countries. It is made with a top layer of custard paired with the sweetness of a light caramel sauce, which is put in the bottom of the pan underneath it. Both are baked together. When chilled and then inverted to un-mold, the sauce pours over the custard and is served as is. The typical flavoring is simply vanilla, but there are numerous variations. Flan may be prepared in a soufflè dish or in individual ramekins or flan dishes.
