in the kitchen with: yvette marquez-sharpnack’s mango cheesecake flan – Design*Sponge

This week’s recipe is by graphic designer and cookbook author Yvette Marquez-Sharpnack. Yvette, together with her sister and mother, has spent the past few years documenting and collecting her family’s recipes in order to produce an authentic Mexican cookbook. The end result is a beautifully photographed collection of recipes, which will be released this autumn and is already getting positive reviews! Yvette’s Mango Cheesecake Flan has become my husband’s favorite dessert (after anything chocolate, of course!). He said it was so good, it was like a drug, and he just couldn’t stop eating it (and yes, in fewer than four days, he ate the whole thing by himself). It is extremely easy to make, and you can even dress it up depending on the type of tin you use. I used a very simple ring, though Yvette uses a more beautiful bundt pan. Whichever you choose, the shape won’t last long — this dessert will disappear in minutes. If you’d like to try another type of flan, have a look at Lorena Barrezueta’s Coconut Flan in our archives. — Kristina
