Do you have the Mexican chocolate Alix? We have plenty of that down here, very inexpensive too, so let me know if you can't find it up there.

Is there a difference Dina? How is Mexican chocolate different?

My first taste of flan was many years ago when a friend of mine from Argentina made one for my birthday. She used the recipe with condensed milk and served it with fresh pineapple, strawberries, raspberries and kiwi. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. She gave me the recipe and I have made it ever since.

something probably more german....

Flan with prunes

2 cups milk
6 eggs
1 3/4 oz flour
3 1/2 oz sugar
1-2t Vanilla extract
1 cup rum
confectioners sugar

soak the pruns in the rum for at least 3h.
whisk the egg with the sugar and the vanilla extract, slowly pour in the flour through a sieve.
It should be a very liquid dough.
Fill into the pan
take the prunes out of the rum, cover with confectioners sugar and flour and arrange on teh dough.

bake at 350F (preheated) for about 30min

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
