Happy Tuesday everyone. Tuesday means it is T Day once again.
This past weekend I had a quiet Sunday and since I've been wanting to do some baking, it was a good day to do it. One thing I wanted to make was some mini-muffins.
I have an autumn mini muffin pan that makes some little pumpkins, turkeys, leaves and apples. And since its autumn it's time to use the pan. I had no sour cream which my recipe called for so I added lemon yogurt along with some chocolate chips and some orange flavored gummies. Gummies are little baking bits made of a jam like material that melt into jammy spots.
And then I wanted to try a new recipe. A few weeks ago Elizabeth shared with us that she had some flan for dessert. I'd never had flan, and I am always up for a baking adventure. Elizabeth was kind enough to share her recipe with me, and I gave it a try.
So my flan baked up quite perfectly but I had a little trouble when I went to flip it out of the pan. The top of the flan is a caramelized sugar, and if you let the flan cool completely in the pan then the sugar makes it get stuck in the pan. I did not let it cool to that point, but when I went to flip it out of the pan, my pan slide a bit off the plate, so part of the flan was hanging off the edge of the plate. Not a lot of it was hanging off the edge, so it didn't ruin it or cause the flan to break. It just wasn't as pretty as it could be.
But no matter, it was still Sunday dinner dessert.
It was so delicious I had 2 pieces. The hubby did too. I usually drink either milk or water with my meal, and Sunday it was milk as you can see here.
Thanks Elizabeth for sharing your recipe with me. I will definitely be making another flan.
So what have you been drinking late? Stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog to not only see what the T gang has been up to, but also to join in and share your drink (and food if you want to include it) post.
I also thought I would share some pretty photos from my Sunday morning walk with you. It's a good thing I took a long walk that morning since I had 2 pieces of flan. :)
Happy T day everyone. Thanks for visiting my blog.
