Caramel Pudding

  • on June 5, 2022

A flan, in British cuisine, is an egg-based dish with an open, rimmed pastry or sponge base containing a sweet or savoury filling; examples are bacon and egg flan or custard tart.

Flan is known in Roman cuisine. It was often a savory dish, as in “eel flan”; sweet flans were also enjoyed.

Both crème caramels and dessert flans use creamy custard bases and soft caramel toppings; however, compared to a crème caramel, a sweet flan has a shorter custard base and a larger diameter.
