Found this on a Spanish food website which of course is a well-known and popular dessert in our cuisine also.
"Flan – Custard with Caramel Sauce Vanilla egg custard, topped with caramel sauce is one of the very popular desserts, served anywhere in Spain. "

Spanish Dessert

"Hi,just wanting some very scrummy, but light Spanish dessert that will work with paella pls thank you x"

This is a recipe for Creme Catalane, which is a similar version of the dish suggested by Janice (hi Jan x)

Infuse together one 2ins stick of cinnamon a piece of orange rind and a piece of lemon rind in 1/2 ltr of milk on a low heat for 15mins (you can also use vanilla grains or star anise).

In a bowl mix together
2 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
100g sugar
25 g of cornflour

Bring the infusion of milk and other ingredients to the boil, remove the rind and cinnamon, and then gently pour over the eggs, sugar and cornflour stirring with a wooden spoon until the mixture thickens.

Pour into ramekins ,(if you have the Spanish flat terracotta dishes even better) and leave to go cold.

Just before you are ready to serve cover the top of the custard mix with demerara sugar and place under a VERY HOT grill to caramelise the top Should serve 4 if using the terracotta dishes.

I would use whole milk for extra creaminess, but if you always use Semi that should be OK. and Yes, it will be perfect left in the fridge, and doubles to perfection :0))

Bon Appetit, (sorry don't know what it is in Spanish :0)))
