a successful flan!

Recipes for desserts do not get easier than this… or so I thought. Not-so successful things happened in the mixing/preparing process, like poorly distributed caramel and way, way too many air bubbles:

Plus having to keep the flan in the oven for double the suggested time was both disconcerting and also made a weird scab-like surface.

Fortunately, flan is made to be flipped and regardless of appearance it tastes delicious.

PS: Curry with beef, not flan, was the main dinner course :)
