The quintessential Latin American dessert—a true comfort food for Americans of Latin American descent. There are as many flavors and variations of this creamy dessert as there are Latin American countries. This one gives you the basics.
If you live near a Latin American bakery, pick up some of the beautiful cookies you’ll find there. They often accompany flan when it’s served for dessert.
Custard mixtures like this one are always cooked with water surrounding them because they need gentle heat to keep from curdling.
