never liked milk, flan was never something I would care for and therefore, it
is not in my usual cooking repertoire. But my kids like flan. Now that I’m here
my mom has been making it for them. So far they’ve tried this light coffee flan
(yes, my kids like coffee…) and they love it.
I say light because I believe there are other recipes that contain other ingredients that make the flan richer such as condensed milk, but this is quite simple: milk, eggs, sugar and coffee. She uses this easy to remember proportion: 2-4-8 (2 glasses of milk, 4 eggs, 8 tablespoons of sugar). For the purpose of the recipe I have measured the milk but if you find a glass at home that works for this volume you’ll be set for the 2-4-8!!
The coffee taste is very subtle so feel free to add a bit more coffee if you like it a bit stronger. Also, I’m not a big fan of sweet desserts and this flan is definitely not that sweet. Oh! and I categorized it as a dessert, but my kids eat it for breakfast, they can’t wait until lunch or dinner time…
