Café Flan Recipe
At my house, there always is a jar of instant café in the freezer, which I use especially for making heavenly Coffee Flan.
It is easy. Just dissolve café granules into the flan’s liquid ingredients, making it a most glorious café con leche color, going darker or lighter depending on mood and just whom will be consuming it. Mine rarely is the same color twice.
Just for you, the folks at Nescafé have offered up a real easy and delicious Flan de Café recipe.
Note: After the recipes, read about a Nescafé Clásico coffee gift basket giveaway and the chance to win dinner and a private dance lesson with Javier “Poty” Castillo, director of choreography for the dance show, Mira Quien Baila. Poty, Spain’s most popular choreographer, is touring the U.S. with Nescafé’s ”Celebra Nuestro Ritmo” campaign, inspiring dance, fun and good health.
