Expert Tips

Flan is the Spanish version of crème caramel. It has a creamy smooth texture.

To make spun sugar decoration: Heat 1/4 cup sugar in saucepan until melted, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from heat and, using a spoon, drizzle melted sugar onto greased foil. Remove from foil and place on flan just before serving.
