#FlanFridays: Cuban Espresso!

Espresso flan

Yes.  It’s that time of the week again. #FlanFridays! I’m starting to really enjoy the task of waking up on Friday’s thinking of a flan to feature. The only problem is that I don’t end up eating it all since I usually make a regular sized one. Tragically, most of it goes to waste. I take 3 bites and I’m good. And, my friends are too lazy to drive over for some lusciousness.


So, today’s flan was done in a ramekin. Two smaller individuals so I could actually enjoy them. I devoured them very selfishly.

Espresso. This has to be one of my favorite flans. Ever.

And, yes it’s because of my undeniable addiction to the best café in the world.

Cuban coffee.

If you know how to make flan, then this one’s no different, really. Just add the right amout of unsweetened espresso to the mix and sprinkle ground coffee over top the finished custard to beautify it. Adding some whole beans will add some lovely texture and contrast; not to mention the aroma.

If you love flan, this a mouth-watering, tear-jerking, orgasmic one.

And, if you’ve never had flan, this one will convert you!

I will admit there’s nothing too fancy about it, like the blueberry one from last week, but it kills almost all others!

Espresso flan

It’s a perfect marriage of flavors if you think of it. Coffee, milk and sugar! Most of us wake up drinking a cup of some kind of roasted beans. This is just the orgasmic form of the liquid jolt.

Enjoy this individual flan.just.for.you.

Happy #FlanFridays!

Eat well, love unapologetically, pray with true intention, and take care of yourself.

  4. Yum, yum, yum, aaaahhhh. Somehow, every time you use the term orgasmic in this food context -very fitting when it comes to flan made by you or the Mother Queen B- it takes my taste buds on a trip to gourmet highs! Yes, espresso flan sounds like something to die for. Hmmm, come to think of it, have you tried making it with Patron coffee tequila? or better yet, with my combo Kahlua/Calvados? THEN, let’s talk about orgasmic!!
    On a separate yet related note, have you ever educated your readers about the difference(s) between the original espresso and Cuban coffee? Just an idea 🙂
