It’s no secret that Latinos absolutely love flan. I even have a friend who makes different a different kind of flan every Friday. You can only imagine the amount of delicious combinations she’s come across over time!
I don’t really know how or when this French pastry took root in our culture, but there’s no doubt that it’s made a place for itself in all of our countries. We often forget that flan originally came from France and was not invented by our ancestors.
In Peru, like in many places, the passion for flan has not limited itself to the realm of sweet pastries, but has transcended to that of the savory as well. One of the most popular in Peru is the artichoke flan, as we are very big fans of this veggie.
My recipe for mini flans made in muffin molds is the perfect snack for a party, brunch, BBQ or any other occasion! I made them with a dough foundation so they would be easier to eat while served on a napkin. Make tons because I know they will disappear in just a few minutes!
