Turkish Coffee Flan?

Psst… if you like coffee, you’ll love our Turkish coffee recipes.

After seeing numerous recipes for Espresso Flan and wondering if Turkish coffee could be used instead, I decided to give it a try. I based my Flan recipe off of Majories Candies YouTube video about making caramel custard (flan). The results were amazing!

Ingredients:   

1/2 cup sugar 
1 qt. milk 
6 eggs 
1/4 tsp salt
1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla 
approx. 2 tbsp brewed & strained Turkish coffee (one serving)


Flan is not a difficult dish to make, and Majories Candies instructions are very easy to follow. The only thing you need to do different is brew one serving of Turkish coffee, strain it several times to remove grounds, and mix it into the eggs when you are about to add the steaming milk. The delicious flavors of Turkish coffee are subtle, but very apparent in this dessert. Play around with the amount of sugar that you use; I did not use as much as the video calls for.
