Pastel de Tres Leches

custard caramel al Chilango

Flan is a tart, a type of pie, with a base of shortcrust pastry. An example is a quiche. In both savoury and sweet flans the filling tends to be based on a thick custard. However there are some types of flans not based on custard, such as the bakewell tart. The British savoury flans may have diverged from the sweeter Spanish flans in the Middle Ages.

Crème caramel, flan, or caramel custard is a custard dessert with a layer of soft caramel on top, as opposed to crème brûlée, which is custard with a hard caramel top. The dish is eaten throughout the world.

Crème caramel is a variant of plain custard (crème) where sugar syrup cooked to caramel stage is poured into the mold before adding the custard base. It is usually cooked in a bain-marie on a stove top or in the oven in a water bath. It is turned and served with the caramel sauce on top, hence the alternate French name crème caramel renversée.

Mexico’s favourite cake! made with 3 types of milk, peaches & icing

A tres leches cake, or pastel de tres leches (from Spanish, “three milk cake”), or pan tres leches (“three milk bread”), is a sponge cake—in some recipes, a butter cake—soaked in three kinds of milk: evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream.

When butter is not used, the Tres Leches is a very light cake, with many air bubbles. This distinct texture is why it does not have a soggy consistency, despite being soaked in a mixture of three types of milk.
