Yes, it’s almost midnight my time, and I’m laying in bed writing this post out of sheer commitment to satisfy my followers on Twitter that know about #FlanFridays.
I got up early this morning, excited about FINALLY using up the fresh blueberries that had been staring at me every time I opened my fridge. They knew they were going to be used for a flan. I’ve been talking about it for about 4 weeks now.
But, I just couldn’t bring myself to making it. No reason in particular. Just wasn’t compelled to indulge in yet another blueberry summer dessert.
Now, I know why!
This bad boy is insanely delicious. It’s sinfully pretty. It’s beautifully colored. It’s sexy creamy.
But a hell of a process if ever I’ve had in making a fresh fruit flan!
I am relentless in my efforts, however, and was not going to allow this itty blue ball get the best of me. I puréed the blueberries, made my custard mix, cooked it, chilled it, unmolded it, and this is what I got.
Utter perfection (slight margin of dissatisfaction in the side texture).
I’ll spare you the details of the slightly labor intensive steps (which I’ll admit to having to modify next time) of this one luscious and creamy flan. I just want you to pretend you have a spoonful in your mouth.
Just as I did about an hour ago!
