Rum Raisin Flan


Raisins soaking in rum.  What’s a girl to do?  Rum raisin flan, of course! The temperature drop this week in Southern California called for fall/winter dessert.  Even if the temperature is still in the upper 60’s, I consider that full blown fall weather and the opportunity to crawl in my closet and find my beloved scarves.

To celebrate this 10 degree drop, I took one of my all-time favorite desserts and incorporated my go-to snack …raisins!  By soaking the raisins in rum, the smooth taste of this creamy decadence gained some delicious depth in flavor, not to mention a very happy family when I placed these babies on our dinner table.

This holiday season, forget the pies!  Make some rum raisin flan instead and be the most popular pot-luck dish contributor at the party.

    I’ve only tried flan once and she must have made it wrong because it was horrible, just horrible. The consistency was nasty. Yours looks much, much nicer!ReplyCancel
