Last week I found myself with an excess of milk beyond its expiry date, though not yet turning. So I sorted through the compost of my mind and found the solution to my predicament: make a Brazilian Flan. I have learned a lot more about a bain marie and caramelizing sugar since then, through watching the 'Great British Baking Show,' which has increased my confidence, so I tackled the project with gusto (it was also a dreary weather day of grey freezing rain).
It looks as if I've created the world's biggest glazed donut:
It feels incredible to be successful on my first attempt. And believe you me, whether it presents perfectly or not, it's obviously super delicious!
