20 Flan Recipes You Should Make This Weekend

If you’re looking for a change of pace from the usual, crackly creme brulee or milky panna cotta, we have you covered. This collection of 20 flan recipes ushers in a whole new custard territory that’s ripe for exploration by you, our intrepid culinary adventure seekers. Travel the globe with distinct, equally spoonable variations hailing from Europe to the Americas. A few are even so magical that we find ourselves wondering if they apparated from Hogwarts itself…

1. Chocoflan: One part chocolate cake, one part flan. This awesome made-in-one-pan creation is an excellent choice for those who struggle with making tough dessert decisions. (via Scarletta Bakes)

2. Caramel-Espresso Flan/Butter Roux Cake: This sponge cake-flan combo is pure magic. Let’s just say, it’s not only because two of our favorite flavors, caramel and coffee, are featured in one bite. (via Lady and Pups)

3. Cheese Flan: Mmmm, a whole block of cream cheese provides this flan with extra creaminess and a slight tang. Talk about a terrific, naturally gluten-free alternative to cheesecake. (via Delicious Shots)

4. Lightened Up Coconut Caramel Flan: A few ingredient swaps reduce the calorie count of each serving, all while preserving creaminess and boosting the protein content at the same time. (via 24 Carrot Life)

5. Venezuelan Flan Quesillo: Guess what? You only need five pantry staples to turn out this fantastic, traditional flan. (via Mommyhood’s Diary)

6. Sweet Potato Flan With Maple Yogurt: Sorry, marshmallows. It seems sweet potatoes are officially breaking up with you. (Don’t worry, you’ll always have s’more flings where that came from.) (via Food52)

7. Far Breton Aux Pruneaux (Paleo): It’s probably no surprise that the original version of this French flan is loaded with butter and milk. Dairy avoiders, rejoice — this paleo-friendly twist is for you. (via The Healthy Foodie)

8. Pumpkin Flan Cake: You can probably imagine just how well pumpkin spice cake works with caramel-y custard. Yeah, our mouths are watering, too. (via Be What We Love)

9. Lime Meringue Flan: If you’re in the mood for a lighter-textured, almost meringue-like treat, give this fluffy, four-ingredient flan a go. (via Cynthia Presser)

10. Coconut and Raspberry Flan: Raspberry glaze stands in for the usual caramel to make this a perfectly summery rendition, especially with coconut topping. (via Bakers Royale)

11. Strawberry Flan: Barely any sugar is needed in these strawberry-studded custards, where the fruit provides the requisite sweetness. (via Vazhayila)

12. Chocoflan: Check it. You use a pressure cooker to make this delish dish. Even better, unlike its bain marie-baked counterparts, it takes only 15 minutes to cook up to creamy perfection. (via Hip Pressure Cooking)

13. Rum + Ginger Flan with Caramelized Figs: Click on over and scroll through a bunch of fig-inspired creations. At the end you’ll be rewarded with the recipe for this rum-spiked creation. (via Spicy Ice Cream)

16. Eggnog Flan: If you’re tired of sipping on the sweet stuff, transform that last carton of eggnog in your fridge into this fab flan. The creamy, eggy flavors of each are a match made in heaven. (via Petit Elefant)

17. Flan in a Jar: We’re always looking for new ways to use our Mason jars, and these ultra-portable pots are just the ticket. (via Miss Wish)

18. Peaches and Cream Flan: Tuck into the honey-roasted-peach compote to reveal two more luxe layers underneath. First, you’ll come across a tangy sour cream custard followed by a crisp graham cracker crust — as you can imagine, the flavors are downright delicious. (via Rock Recipes)

19. Pumpkin Flan (Vegan, Gluten-Free): It’s almost hard to believe that this delicate flan is made without a drop of cream or a single egg. It’s a dead ringer for the real, dairy-filled deal. (via Vegan Richa)

20. Vietnamese Flan With Espresso: We can sum up this espresso, chocolate, star anise and caramelized brown sugar flan with just one word: SWOON. (via Jules Food…)
