Due to a request from some recently bereaved friends, I am faced with having to make a flan. Personally, I'm not a big fan. I've only had it in restaurants and I find it a bit "tough" on the outside. I think it might be the caramel side that is a bit "chewy". Can anyone relate to this issue? Perhaps it is easy to overcook? I do enjoy a good creme brulee (which is more delicate) and custardy desserts in general. Is there a way to alleviate this problem? Is there a killer flan recipe out there?
I'd love to make this for my friends as they've been through an ordeal and they need some comfort in their lives.
TIA for any help.
