As kids, we all had our favourite desserts we could have eaten every day. For me, it was a hot chocolate sponge and chocolate custard. But we also have our dark puddings that none of us liked, mine was the flan. Now since starting to write this post I now know they are called crème caramels in other parts of the world. But call them what you like, I hated it. But maybe it was just the type of flan I had, maybe I should try one of these types…

This rather fruity sounding number adds a rather healthy spin of the original crème caramel recipe. Funny of tangy orange and exotic coconut I would imagine this has a very Caribbean taste to it.

Just when I thought a flan could not look any stranger this rather tasty sounding asparagus one comes along! Sure it doesn’t look like the best thing in the World, but it has a fine list of ingredients that make it sound rather tasty indeed.

While this is basically the original crème caramel / flan recipe it is the ingredients that have been stepped up. Featuring no less than 30 Hershey’s Kisses in each flan it really does sound amazing.

Now this is a real big spin of the original recipe. Made with fresh spring peas, grated cheese and white pepper it is a real mash-up of things.

Out of all of these in this top 10 this is the one I will try first. The combination of strawberry flan and the drizzle sauce topping makes me drool very heavily indeed.

While I am not the biggest fan of white chocolate I think inside a dessert flan it might work well! So if you fancy taking on the milky bar kid at a flan-off this is the one for you.

Now this is more like it! Made with evaporated milk, condensed milk and fresh lime juice it is a zingy taste and then the meringue topping just makes it something else altogether.

Chocolate Flan

Probably no surprise to many of you that this chocolate one made it all the way up here to number 2. Maybe it was the fresh strawberries side topping that finished me off, but I think this makes a flan very tasty indeed.

Fresh Corn Flan

Now we are talking my language! Made with fresh corn and roasted hominy it does have a sort of savoury taste to it. But the image makes it look fresh, tasty and well worth a go at making it and thanks to the guide and recipe in the link that we can all try.
