“This flan is so easy to make, and it only takes 3 ingredients (besides the caramel, of course). Flans usually take a bunch of eggs, giving them an egg flavour, which I honeslty do not like. Luckily, for those who don’t like eggs, or want something new to try, there are recipes like this! In my home, we call this recipe “Flan One, Two, Three”. Though the original recipe comes from a cookbook for kids, I changed some things, such as the measurements of the sugar, since we aren’t fans of caramel. ”

    Place mould into a larger, squared kitchen tray, and fill with hot water until it is about 1-2 cm under the border of the mould containing the flan. Note, make sure the water doesn’t fall inside of the mould, for it would spoil the flan. Set to bake in a low oven for about 60 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.

    Once cooked, place in a cool bath for a couple of minutes, then chill for about for hours, or, even better, overnight. Serve cold with whipped cream or dulce de leche! Enjoy!
