    I have never had flan before, but every time I see a picture of it, I can’t help but stare. It’s one of those things that I think if I ever did get the chance to try it, I just wouldn’t stop eating it. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    My gosh, how easy-peasy is that? I always assumed a flan would be difficult to make (thought there was some mysterious handling involved), but you’ve taken the fear out of it for me. I will certainly give this a try.
