I love a good flan, and have experimented with many during the years of my flan-fixation. :) This one is quite lovely- both for ease of preparation, and for taste. It is denser then some I've tasted, not too heavy like some that use heavy cream, but texture-wise, very creamy and smooth. I got this recipe from a dear friend who gave me her mother's recipe from Cuba. Don't hesitate to make this recipe becuause you don't know what to do with the leftover egg-whites. There are lots of things to do with egg-whites! Use them in egg-flower soup, fried rice, egg-white omelettes, meringues, as the egg-binder in meatloaf, meatballs and spinach-artichoke dip, just to name a few. Enjoy. :) Note: prep time does not include cooling.
