This week we baked custard, Bridget of The Way the Cookie Crumbles chose these for us. I played around with Dorie's recipe, making half the batch lemon-lavender and the other half coffee-cinnamon.
This was such an easy recipe and came together so well. I baked mine for just over 50 minutes to ensure they weren't jiggly (as my memory of the soupy Crème Brûlée came to mind). They were perfect texture even better after refrigeration. These are very much Flan like, and since most TWDers mentioned how eggy they were, I choose to play around with the flavors.
I went with lemon-lavender because I really liked the flavor of these Lavender Madeleines I made before. I made the coffee ones for the Mr. and I and the lemon ones for the kiddos. Sadly, their review of them was not what I was hoping for. They did not like them. I thought they were OK, they certainly weren't eggy though, I'm just not a huge fan of Flan or this case baked custard. I like my custard warm and pourable, over apple pie or a filling for an eclair.
