      This is the closest to my Tita Garnette's recipe I have seen. All the ingredients are basically the same and in the same proportion. The biggest thing I do differently is that I hand stir the custard mix and I do it very gently. I avoid frothy bubbles as much as possible. I also pour the custard mix through a strainer as it goes into the pan. This is the trick to make a very creamy flan. Air bubbles will change the texture and mouth feel of the flan.
