A nice, basic recipe for making yummy flan! Spanish influenced but also popular in the Southwest, Mexico and the Caribbean! This is also widely popular in Cuba and since there is such a large Cuban population in Florida, I guess that makes puts this in a Southern category too!
This recipe has been a big hit at family gatherings and potlucks for years! It could also be used as a light dessert. I have also used French Vanilla pudding mix. It makes a large amount so make sure to use a very large mixing bowl.
Here it is folks! First time ever in print! My Mom's famous hot chocolate sauce for ice cream sundaes. These are ingredients you more than likely always have on hand. Try this once and you will never buy store bought sauce again!
This is excellent, makes a lot, and keeps well. Be sure to follow the directions. I had it go sugary on me once and I believe it was because I tried to mix the water in too fast. Number of servings is difficult to decide - it has so many uses and sometimes I put a tablespoon over ice cream and sometimes I use a cup or more for recipes calling for caramel sauce. But since Zaar makes me pick a number I picked 48.
I made this recipe after falling in love with Coldstone and Carvel's Cake Batter Ice Cream.
I recommend using Splenda instead of sugar since there is sugar in the cake mix.
You can use 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract if you please. You can also use 3/4 cup of cake mix.
THIS RECIPE IS TO USE WITH AN ICE CREAM MAKER (MINE IS BY CUISINART)
this is exactly like the blue moon ice cream that can be found in northern michigan at kilwins. Its also the same that i used to have in the summers as a kid in the 70's. there isn't any pineapple or alcohol in this!!
