Tips and recommendations for a yummy cheese flan

  • A creamy dessert and at the same time with a smooth texture, with a cheese flavor but without overdoing it. It is still a flan and I advise you to take it very cold.
  • Exquisite with a little whipped cream or with a cream of berries, the contrast of the acid flavor is not even painted.
  • You can also prepare it in large format, although the good thing about the individual format is that later you can present it much better. If the video and the recipe do not reach you, do not miss the step by step of the cheese flan recipe .
