Coffee Liqueur Flan and Kahlúa Latte

Coffee Liqueur Flan Recipe: a flan for grownups that you will love, I absolutely love the combination in this flan.spon-post

This is a blog that straddles many different “worlds”. Something that is perfectly symbolized by a pumpkin spice latte flan.

Two bloggers belonging to multi-cultural families, trying to instil a love for traditional Dominican cuisine in our children, while at the same time trying to equally inspire their love for the cuisine of the other branches of our families. Two lovers of food, wherever they come from, with a readership that is comprised in its majority by the “Dominican diaspora”.

Have you seen the Thanksgiving table at a Dominican-American home? Pastelón de plátanos maduros shares the table with the traditional American turkey. Tostones, pastelitos and pumpkin pie. It’s a thing to behold.

I have a double offering for you this time.

First a flan that you will love. A flan for grownups. I absolutely love the combination of Kahlúa pumpkin spice in this flan. It gives this Hispanic classic a new dimension: there is a subtle hint of coffee and spices, and the unmistakable taste of Kahlúa. Because I used whole eggs as opposed to yolks as in the traditional flan, this flan has a lighter, fluffier and more delicate texture.

Each spoonful is a pleasure for the senses, from the marbled golden caramel color, to the aroma of coffee to the creaminess of a dessert that lingers on your tongue.

And sharing the table, a simple drink. Simple in its preparation but not its flavors, this warm drink is perfect for this time of the year when the temperatures start to drop (any minute now!).

I brought this flan to Ilana’s birthday party; gladly it was very well-received and my husband who is a flan aficionado heaped high praise on it. I think I will have to make another one soon.

Whether to drink on its own, or create your own drinks or dishes, I loved the flavors of the Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice. Besides the bottle I got from my sponsor, I bought another one with my own money, because I definitely want to have it around for future experiments. That’s how much I loved it.
