Tres leches mexican flan recipe with step by step pictures.
Mexican flan is nothing but a rich dense caramel custard dessert. This is super easy to make and taste absolutely delicious. The texture of this flan is unlike other flans, it is little dense in texture and so much richer.
The flan is creamy pudding like which is not too sweet and has a slight bitternote from the caramel. So good.
Normally caramel custard is so smooth which just melt in mouth. But this one has a dense texture in the custard which is just perfect.
