Strawberry Cream Cheese Flan – Fresh Strawberries and cream cheese make this a delicious, creamy Summer dessert recipe and perfect for Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day too !
We are fortunate in the sense that Strawberries are always available in South-Africa. Throughout Winter, although a bit smaller, one could get Strawberries at most supermarkets and fruit and veg markets.
I used a store-bought Flan Base, the filling was quick to make and took only an hour to set.
This suited me just fine today, as I had some curtains to make and a few other bits and pieces for the kitchen and the laundry.
There was also no need to cook today, because there were quite a bit of left-overs from yesterdays braai (BBQ). My kids are MIA again, therefore it was only hubby, a friend of my son’s living with us, and myself to feed.
