Why don’t we kick it off with a cup of coffee? Starting the day with a cup of joe is almost like a ritual for the world, but with this recipe, coffee can be taken to the next level with a delicious and easy-to-make breakfast treat. 

Introducing Nicole’s Coffee Flan, a delightful blend of rich coffee flavors and creamy flan, perfect for a unique and exciting morning experience. This special recipe is not only healthy but also incredibly simple to prepare. 

How to Make Coffee Flan

Imagine waking up to the aroma of coffee and enjoying it in a smooth, silky dessert form. Here’s how to make it:


  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup of your preferred milk
  • 2 teaspoon of sweetener
  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of instant coffee


  1. Mix the Ingredients: In a microwave-safe mug, combine the egg with milk, sweetener, vanilla extract, and instant coffee. Stir well until all ingredients are fully integrated.
  2. Microwave Magic: Place the mug in the microwave and cook on high in 30-second intervals. Check after each interval, stirring if necessary. It should take about 2 minutes in total, or until the center is no longer liquid.
  3. Check Consistency: Ensure that the flan doesn’t overflow by keeping an eye on it during microwaving. The flan should be set in the center before taking it out.
  4. Cool and Serve: Once cooked, let the flan cool for a bit. For the best results, refrigerate for an hour before serving. This helps to set the flan and intensify the flavors.

For those without a microwave, this recipe can also be baked in a small mold in the oven or cooked in an air fryer until the center is set, yielding equally delicious results.
