How to Make Flan

When you want a creamy dessert that's more sophisticated than pudding, it's time to learn how to make flan. This rich, custard-based treat topped with caramelized sugar is often associated with Spanish, Mexican or Central and South American cuisines, but flan (rhymes with "faun") is believed to have originated in Rome, one of the first places where chickens were kept for their eggs. The original dish was more savory than sweet.
