The Art of French Baking

Parisian Custard or Flan 'a la parisienne is a French custard. Its soft and little crunch on the outside. I have this book, The Art of French Baking as you seen below :
This book its totally amazing, it teaches you how simple treats can turn into something beyond your imagination. It comes with many chapter from the scratch to the excellent sweet treats. Its worth it.

This is one recipe i had tried and it absolutely has a gorgeous texture and wonderful taste!

Put the flour in a bowl. Make a well and put the sugar, eggs and butter into it, then beat to combine. Stir the vanilla sugar into the milk and add to the flour mixture. Beat the butter until completely smooth.
