How to make a homemade custard cream . As a child, one of the dessert recipes we always asked my mother for was homemade egg custard .

At that time we were referring to egg custard , a timeless classic that my mother embroiders like no one else. The flan de nata is one of our simplest and most helpful desserts out there, with few ingredients and that never fails.

Today I have started with a new recipe, a cream flan that is from this moment on my favorites. The process is the same as always, the sugary combination of dairy with egg, which when baked is wonderfully curdled.

In the cream flan recipe, the fatty contribution of the cream makes the flan increase its creaminess and achieve a slightly denser and creamier texture. Although I usually prepare it in individual portions, due to the fact that I have more cool, this flan would be perfect in a family-sized flan.

It is an ideal dessert both for a special dinner end and to consume daily with the family. If the children are like my sister Nuria and I were, they will enjoy it very much.
