Flan, also known as crème caramel, is a milk-based dessert with a thin layer of caramel on top. It’s creamy, lush and with only 6 ingredients and two steps, a breeze to put together. This dessert is essentially crème brûlée without the blow torch. This is a great option for those that are gluten-free or just need a rich custard in their life. This dish works perfectly in Suvie as you don’t need to prepare a bain-marie as you would for baking in a traditional oven. The result is silky smooth, caramelly goodness that you won’t be able to resist.
