I think the flavor and texture is good...almost like a crust less pumpkin pie. The thing that makes it more like flan is the syrup. I personally think it needs more egg to give it more of a flan texture and flavor. It is still a good recipe that I will keep.
This was a very easy dish to make, without much fuss. I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. It didn't sit on the table for long. Even my grandson (18) was impressed, in fact he asked me to make him his own for our next family dinner.
This was delcious and easy to make and looks impressive, too! everyone loved it and it was gone in a flash. a definite keeper! JOsiesweetie
I can't believe I successfully made flan! I used a smaller pan then 8x8 and took it out too soon. Make sure it looks the same all over (my center was obviously not done but I didn't want it to cook too long so I took it out anyway - should have left it in!) before you take it out. Beautiful presentation and great pumpkin flan flavor. Thanks so much!
