Description

Every culture has its custardy dessert, or flan, and this one is a specialty of France. Think of it as an easier crème brulee—no kitchen torch required, just the heat of the oven—to achieve the trademark caramelized top. You’re likely to have most of the ingredients on hand: milk, sugar, cream, eggs, and cornstarch. A high-quality vanilla extract can be used in place of vanilla beans, in a pinch. The flan is great for making ahead, and can be chilled in the refrigerator up to a day before serving.

    3. In a medium bowl whisk together sugar and egg yolks, add cornstarch and sugar/vanilla mixture.
