Classic flan

30 minutes
6 servings

Calling flan a caramel custard is to do it an injustice. No mere pudding, this traditional Spanish dessert is the crème de la crème of sweets. Of course, not surprisingly, there are a hundred and one variations on the basic recipe. But sometimes the original is so much more than one can expect, to alter it is to approach cooking blasphemy.
