Flan: One of our favorite desserts!

Our special guest Marisa helped us prepare one of our favorite desserts: flan.
Flan is a traditional Spanish dish, also very popular en Argentina.
It is surprisingly easy: it only takes time to cook and needs to be refrigerated for at least 2 hours before serving, so plan ahead!

Here's what you need:

  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 vanilla bean or vanilla extract
For the caramel:

  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of water
Please be careful when making caramel... it gets really hot!

Special thanks to our lovely friend Marisa for stopping by :)

  1. Flan is really delicious but have you tried creme brulee? It's much tastier and absolutely sweeter.

  3. Great stuff! This beats anything that teaches how to make good flan, because you show it in video so the viewer can't possibly fail if he/she follows instructions carefully.

  4. Your special guest is really good in this one. Is she in any of your other videos? I'd want to learn more dessert cooking from her.

  8. This dessert is my favorite! It's very easy to make even though preparing it is a bit messy. Long island wedding venues always include this dessert when ever the client wants to serve it on the event.
