This super easy flan recipe is the perfect texture, tastes great, and is sure to please a crowd.
If there is one dessert that I miss from Mexico, it is definitely flan. This is a classic Mexican dessert that is easy to make and a fan favorite whenever I make it.
Growing up in Mexico, we always looked forward to the days where mom would make flan. As soon as I walked in the house and saw her making it, my siblings and I got super excited and couldn’t wait until it was done. Flan has such a smooth, creamy texture and the flavors are just amazing.
Whenever I am asked to take a dessert to a dinner with friends or family, this flan recipe is at the top of my list. It doesn’t take very long to make, but everyone is always impressed with the presentation and the different flavors. Flan is made with simple ingredients, including one of my favorites – Nestlé Media Crema. If you haven’t discovered this product yet, you are missing out!
Media Crema is a shelf-stable table cream that can be used in so many different recipes. It is definitely a staple in every Mexican home. It is great because it can be used in sweet recipes like this flan, or in savory recipes like soups and more. One of the most common uses in my house is as a topping for traditional Mexican recipes like tostadas or empanadas.
