Café Flan Recipe

Clásico Coffee Flan

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.

First, the Flan de Café recipe!

I normally like my coffee black, but for afternoons, I like adding Nescafe to hot milk and making a frosty latte. SO good!

I’m a coffee-holic so this is the perfect giveaway for me! I like my coffee with tons of cream and a little bit of sugar, just enough to taste. I also love to add flavorings like vanilla, peppermint, etc. Probably my favorite way to consume coffee is in the form of espresso floats…lol. Basically, and ice cream sundae with a shot or two of espresso. The name of this cafe is bound to get me teased…lol! But I think it’s so cute! My daughter loves monkeys and is always talking about her monkey tail…lol. So it’s very fitting. ;)

Monica says:

OH! I get it now. :)

I want to try the Cola de Mono if only so that I could see the look on my mother’s face when she asks what I’ve been doing and I say that I have just had my first Cola de Mono. Seeing as how she never understood why I became a zoo keeper after college, she will probably just have a duck thinking about it.

I love the idea of telling my mother-in-law that I am drinking “Cola de Mono” and would she like to try some. I can hear it now, “Queeeee?????????” Sounds like a wonderful beverage!
