How many Flan caramel recipes are there in the internet? Having said than I can assure you that every household in Gibraltar has their particular Flan recipe handed down through generations, have I ever mentioned how much Gibraltarians like their food? Well we do! and each of us like to think our recipe is the best, after all its what we’ve eaten growing up and nothing beats Grandma’s cooking. There are some very notable Gibraltarian cooks who can easily rival any world famous chef. And I’m including my Grandmother in that list. Her flan was to die for, and because she used cream in it, the texture is very reminiscent of cheesecake, but with all the softness of a flan. Its a very nourishing dessert ( nourishing as in calorie loaded), and very easy to make too.
This is another tea time treat I remember having down in the beach, I must stress however, that we did eat at home, every day, its just that I associate Food with happy memories, and tea time at the beach during the summer season (well maybe during spring and early autumn too) were one of my most fondest childhood memories. My boys used to enjoy this too when they were growing up, and one day I hope my grandchildren will enjoy those summer afternoons as well.
So go ahead and give my baked flan a try, I’m sure it will not disappoint.
