Mango and Honey Flan

Mango and Honey Flan

It’s been a while since the last time I posted a dessert on this blog and that’s because I haven’t been eating many lately. With speedo season rapidly approaching I need to make sure to be in excellent shape to wear my new swimsuit, LOL. Yeah, call me vain, but if I don’t take care of myself, nobody else is going to, right? :-p

Anyway, I an finally starting to see mangoes up here in Ohio and I couldn’t resist to buy some on my last trip to the store. I used most of them for my breakfast bombas and fruit salads but I really wanted to use one to experiment with a new flan flavor. The result was the beautiful flan you see in these pictures.

  4. Pour about 1" of water into a larger pan, 11 or 12", and put the smaller one into it (bain marie). Cover with foil aluminum paper.
  5. Bake for 60 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
  6. Put the baking pan on a wire rack and let it cool for at least 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before unmolding.
  7. To unmold, put a plate on top of the pan facing down and flip the pan over and slide it off.

 

The afterthoughts:

  • Flans are some of my favorite desserts to make because they are fast and easy to make and delicious treats. Mango and honey were a great combination for this one and I don’t think there’s anything I’d change.

  7. I’m not a big flan eater, but this has two of my favorite things (mango and honey)….hope the speedo training is going well ;)

  8. I adore both those flavours of honey and mango…beautifully combined in this flan. “Speedo” season is an interesting time to look forward to Ben!…LOL

  9. I cannot tell you just how much I adore flan and the Greek version, crema caramele. Probably my favorite dessert ever. I still remember my 6th grade class trip to a Colombian restaurant in Queens with the fellow students from my Spanish class–it was the first time I ever tried flan and I fell in love it with it immediately. There is a distinctly different taste to flan than the Greek version.
    The flavors of your Mango and honey flan sound amazing.
