For this week, the Tuesdays with Dorie recipe chosen by Steph of a whisk and a spoon was the Caramel Topped Flan. I've never had flan before this, and I was a little unsure if I wanted to do the challenge this week. As you can see, I went through with it in the end.
The first bite, well... Let's just say that I was not impressed. And then I sat down to write the post, and I had another small bite. Then, as I was loading the pictures, I had another one. Somewhere along the line, I realized that the vanilla creaminess and the smoky caramel was really pretty addictive. I'm not sure this would be my first thought for dessert, but it's definitely worth adding to the recipe box. Oh, and I'd love to try it with the coconut milk too.
As you can tell from the pictures, I used ramekins. Plating them was a bit of a challenge, so I had bits of flan floating in the caramel. It wouldn't be very fancy in presentation, but I'm in the not-perfect makes it taste better camp. (Oh and one of these days, I'll get a camera that can take better close ups.)
