Flan

Flan is a dessert made by adding custard to a caramel-lined mold. After it is baked, then chilled, it is tipped out of the mold so the caramel is on top.

Flan gets its name from the French word flaon, which comes from the Old German flado, a “flat cake.” (Because of the shape.) Spaniards brought flan to Mexico during Spanish conquest and occupation. Since then it's become a truly beloved dish among Mexicans in all regions of the country.

flan
O pudim é uma sobremesa de pudim feita por adição a uma forma forrada de caramelo. Depois de cozido e resfriado, ele é retirado da forma para que o caramelo fique por cima. O prato é popular em todo o mundo, da Europa às Filipinas e à América Latina, e uma forma é um produto básico nas lojas de conveniência japonesas. Embora seja tipicamente flan, com sabor de baunilha, pode ser feito com vários outros sabores, como amêndoa ou chocolate. Uma variação de flan popular em Porto Rico contém uma camada adicional de quê?

Porto Rico / República Dominicana Freqüentemente, os pudins caribenhos são à base de coco e chamados de flan de coco, feitos com leite condensado e leite de coco.

WHAT IS FLAN?

Flan, or crème caramel, is a creamy custard dessert topped with caramel that’s popular in Mexico, Spain and many Latin American countries.

It’s known for its smooth and creamy consistency that’s achieved by cooking the custard in a water bath, or a bain-marie or baño-maría. Doing so creates steam in the oven which gently and evenly cooks the flan, keeping it moist and ensuring that the eggs aren’t overcooked and curdled or scrambled.

The flan is cooked with the caramel on the bottom of the pan and the custard mixture on top. After it’s cooked and sufficiently cooled, the flan is then inverted onto a plate to reveal a rich and golden caramel sauce that perfectly covers the top of the flan!

Crème caramel (French: [kʁɛm kaʁaˈmɛl]), flan [flɑ̃], or caramel custard is a custard dessert with a layer of soft caramel on top, as opposed to crème brûlée, which is custard with a hard caramel top. The dish is eaten throughout the world.

Ah HA! The difference -- finally explained.
