Lola’s Fancy Passion Fruit and Coconut Flan | Flan de Maracuyá y Coco

On Sunday, May 10, Mother’s Day will be celebrated simultaneously in Mexico and the U.S. This doesn’t happen often, and I actually prefer when it falls on separate days because then I get showered with twice the love (and gifts!). Many of us aren’t able to celebrate with our madrecita for a number of reasons, but this is what I’d make for my mom if she were within driving distance. The fresh passion fruit and edible flowers take this flan over the top and make it feel extra special, like my own mother and so many of the inspiring women in my life.  

Enjoy and stay safe out there,
