Maple Ricotta Flan Recipe

4 each

Maple Ricotta Flan is a delicious ricotta cheese flan flavored with maple. It’s one of my favorite dessert recipes using ricotta cheese.

Flan is a baked custard dessert that is often topped with caramel. This recipe uses ricotta cheese rather than simply using eggs which is how you’d make a traditional flan recipe.

Because egg-based dishes are rather delicate, it is baked in a water bath in the oven to give it a light texture.

You definitely can make this ahead of time. Just keep it in the refrigerator until you serve it. Flan is best served cold in my opinion. Don’t invert it until right before you serve it.
