Smooth, rich, creamy, and full of vanilla flavor - you can't get much better than flan. Also sometimes called crème caramel, flan is a sinful combination of egg yolks and condensed milk that forms a perfect custard with a light caramel sauce.

These look soooo yummy.
I do have to stress though that flan is a crème patissière based tart whereas crême brûlée is more like what you describe.

Thanks for sharing,

I'm afraid I've never encountered a flan like you're describing, but I certainly would like to! Every flan I've ever had has been a baked custard of this type, differentiated from creme brulee by the lack of a burnt sugar crust and the fact that it is turned out and has a thin caramel sauce.

I love flan! It was the staple dessert in my home town. The sauce on the bottom is my favorite part. :)

I love it with strawberries and whipped cream - so perfect!
