Desserts always fascinate me because they are often the least likely culinary dish to make yourself. This recipe for a flan is quite simple, consisting entirely of sugar, blanched almonds, condensed milk, cream, and eggs. I made the mistake of using brown sugar instead of white and the sugar syrup topping ended up being rather bitter. Paired with the fact that the flan itself wasn’t very sweet (maybe because I used evaporated milk instead of condensed, I always get the two mixed up). Furthermore, the almonds weren’t quite completely powdered in the blender which disturbed somewhat the velvety consistency of the flan. Despite all this, with a little maple syrup poured over top, this was a tasty little dessert and a fun new recipe to try, not to mention the endless puns you can make with the word flan!
