I have been checking out several flan recipes here, but nothing is quite like this one. We love it, rich and comforting, and We love ours warm still more like a warm custard than a chilled flan, but I'm sure it would be great anyway you want it.
These are very dense as truffles go, rich and yummy! Change the type of chips you use or add a teaspoon of flavoring to change the flavor. They keep very well. I get my dipping chocolate in the bulk foods department at our local grocery store.
I grew up with these oh so good bar doughnuts and didn't realize till recently that they are somewhat of a northwestern phenomenon. I actually halved the original recipe because it was so huge, so it does double. Don't use to much flour because it will make the dough tough. If you are feeling really decadent (they are already deep fried after all) I like to fill them with Bavarian cream filling which I get at our Cash and Carry restaurant supply store, or you can make it yourself.
These are so good. I have to make 2 dozen for my grandmother every Christmas and she refuses to share them. She actually hides them and pulls them out one at a time! I really have no idea how many this makes as I usually double or triple the recipe. Also it depends on how much of the center you like . UPDATE: some people have had difficulty with the filling being to runny....adding more powdered sugar is not going to alter the taste so feel free to add another 1/2 c to a cup with out worry :)
This is a great way to use ripe or over ripe pears. I had a hard time with submitting it so to clarify, 1-1/2 cups of the pear sauce is used in the bar recipe. You use the other 1-1/2 c of sauce as a garnish.
This is our families favorite Sunday dessert, because it's so simple and yet very rich and yummy. The thing that makes it soooo good is the real whipped cream, don't skimp there! If you don't like mixes just use the real thing, you just aren't cheatin'!
