I have a confession to make. I had never eaten flan until the beginning of this year. Yes, I know, I live in Phoenix, AZ where you can get some of the best Mexican food there is to be had. I have eaten a lot of Mexican food. I have seen flan and heard that it is so good, but I had never tried it. Let's face it. After you have eaten a huge meal of chimichangas, beans and rice, who has room for a dessert? Well, during the holidays, after Christmas, my son and my son-in-law went out to eat and they brought home flan for me to try. It was creamy and good, but this particular flan seemed a little short on the caramel part to me. Also, I was surprised that what I was eating was basically custard like my mom used to make when I was a kid! Anyway, I decided that I needed to try to make it myself.
The flan was creamy and delicious, but the thing that I missed from when my mom used to make custard was the cinnamon! I have since read recipes for Flan that do include cinnamon or a cinnamon stick in the recipe and I definitely think that I will try that next time because I know that it will be delicious!
I hope you will try it and enjoy it! Especially if you are like me and haven't given it a try yet! You will be glad that you did!
