Cinnamon and Amaretto Flan

After my friend Jain raved about Emeril's Kahlua Flan recipe, I knew I had to try it.
She stunned me by reciting the recipe, from her cell phone, in the midst of shopping
~Psst... thank you for being my personal shopper, Jain! :)

Most of the ingredients come straight from the pantry.

I had no Kahlua in the house, so I substituted Amaretto, the Italian almond liqueur.

Following Jain's lead I added cinnamon to the caramelized sugar; I used the highly intense Vietnamese variety.

Rich, cool, smooth and creamy ~ and not too sweet. :)

It is such an easy recipe, too~

Thank you for sharing the recipe Jain ~ it's one I'll make again,

and I'd love to try it with Kahlua next time.
