      Awesome!!! I love flan and usually stick to the traditional. But this was exceptional. I love the nuance of the orange zest in the caramel, and the coffee/cinammon combo was the bomb. I made this in a cake pan as directed and a small ramekin so I could taste. Will post a picture of the large one tomorrow when I unmold. Thanks, Lainey, for posting a fabulous recipe!

      To me, espresso and cinnamon are the flavors of Mexico. This wonderfully flavored flan is easy to make and the perfect finish to a great meal. Thanks so much for listing it!
