The first step to make two-colored coffee flan is make coffe. To do this, you must prepare a coffee maker. It is better not to load it a lot so that the coffee does not come out very strong and the flavor of the flan is softer and pleasant. We will need about half a liter of coffee. If you don't have enough with a coffee maker, make another one until you get that amount.


Once we have half a liter of coffee, the next step is mix it well with the cream so that a cream or liquid is a bit dense, but homogeneous. If you can't mix it properly with a spoon, help yourself with the pastry sticks and even the mixer.


Then pour this mixture of coffee and cream on a bowl, which you should put to heat, but over low heat so that it does not burn. When it's hot, it's time to add flan envelopes. It is important to move again.


While on fire it is time to add sugar, if you want it sweeter. You can put the amount you want until it has the level of sweetness you want. If instead of sugar you want to use another product, we leave you this other article on How to replace sugar.

This mixture is left on the fire until it boils, but it is already important not to stir it. Then you have to pour it over the flannel or small molds for custards. If you want to add caramel, you should put it in the bottom of the molds before putting the coffee flan mixture. It is important that the caramel layer covers the entire bottom of the container well so that when unmolding it does not look like a kind of stains on the top. It is even preferable to put plenty of caramel and that it is solid so that it does not melt completely with the mixture that is poured.


Once it has poured, you have to wait for it to cool well to unmold it carefully and consume it. When you take it out, surprisingly you will see that the flan has remained in two colors, having a darker tone above and a lighter shade below. This separation occurs at the time of cooling, so it is very important not to move the flange while resting. So you just have to wait ... and voila! You will have your coffee and cream flan.
