Cheesecake Flan. This smooth cream cheese flan topped with a golden brown caramel is an elegant dessert that can be baked and chilled until serving. Much to my (pleasant) surprise, I ended up with a flan-flavored cheesecake instead, thanks to the power of caramelized sugar. Careful, that thin layer of caramel can be overpowering.
It is the kind of dessert that needs to be made in advance as chilling it is essential. Place the sugar, water and lemon juice in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Savoring the contrast between this incredibly rich baked custard and its slightly burnt-tasting caramel sauce is a delicious experience. You can have Cheesecake Flan using 9 ingredients and 14 steps.
