Deliciously Simple Spanish Dessert Recipes … Flan …

Home-made Spanish flans are easy to prepare, ingredients simple, and you’ll find they offer a deliciously light ending to a meal.

What’s more, they’re extremely versatile…

You can either stick to the basic recipe, or titivate it up a bit …

For example, with the recipe below, replace some of the milk with freshly-squeezed orange or tangerine juice for a mouth-watering change.

Then turn the flan into something special, by decorating with piped cream and a few orange slices – your guests will love the result.

Never think that the stodgy, rubbery variety you can buy in supermarkets is anything like a wonderful, home-made flan!
