Happy Mother’s Day

Hello world! Today in America, we celebrate all the moms out there. I celebrated by baking flan and a cake for my mom. My mom had a great idea, she added a but of coffee on top of the flan, and it gave it an awesome coffee flavor. You have this custard that is usually sweetened with caramel sugar but with a small amount of coffee, it not only enhances the taste of the custard but gives it an additional dimension. I definitely recommend trying this. As for the cake, she enjoyed it as well. I used a pretty basic yellow butter cake recipe and it turned out pretty good, light and airy, not too sweet. I didn’t put any frosting on my cake because my mom doesn’t like frosting.

I hope you all got a chance to spend some time with your mom today to let her know how much you love her. Whether it be over the Internet in a video chat, or a phone call, or in person.
