They are very, very similar.Where in Mexico, we use whole milk, the islands such as Cuba and Puerto Rico will use sweetened condensed milk or evaporated milk. They lacked fresh foods, and that is why they had to use canned foods.
I have seen people make flan key lime cheesecake flan, coconut flan, cream cheese flan, you name it!All are delicious. This Mexican flan recipe is your basic dessert. You can easily change it up according to your taste.
