Flan – the Brazilian Classic Way (Pudim de Leite Condensado)

flan-custard-pudim-brazilian

This dessert has so many different names (flan, pudim, custard, crème caramel, quesillo) depending on the country, but all recipes are similar. This is the Brazilian basic version and it is a little sweeter than the other ones. Serve it with fresh berries and whipped cream or just by itself!
