Pina Colada Flan

Rating: Unrated
Tastes like an island -- but in a dessert. Has a better texture than most flans. Best flan all my friends, even ones who HATE flan texture, have ever tasted!

Flan Mexicano (Mexican Flan)

Rating: Unrated
This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law, who is from Durango, Mexico. I had to beg her for years to give this recipe to me. Finally, she gave it to me for Christmas. I added orange zest, but the original recipe calls for just pure vanilla. You can use almond extract as well.

This delicious pumpkin flan is the result of an experiment in replacing the recipe's usual cream and half-and-half with low-fat milk.

Flan is a traditional Spanish/Hispanic dessert that can be dressed up any way from chocolate to traditional. This flan is simple, yet creamy and smooth. If you have never had flan or just couldn't seem to get it right, I can assure you that your family and friends will want the recipe. Be daring and try other extracts like almond or orange.

Flan I

This is a wonderful flan recipe from the late Iris Perez. Its origin is Mexican. For a denser, cheesecake-like texture, substitute eight ounces of cream cheese for two of the eggs.
