To facilitate my “feature vs. letter” learning, I ordered a travel-writing book from Amazon. All my Amazon purchases have been great experiences, but there’s a first time for everything: the book never arrived.
During the three-week wait between book order and estimated arrival, my interest in learning to prepare red chili sauce increased. An online search took me to julesfood.blogspot.com but it was this post which hit all my buttons: easy, delicious, and…caramel.
Filing an Amazon claim for merchandise not received stung, so, I made that Flan cake for pleasant distraction. As Jules recommended, I made sure the bain marie water was oven-hot before dropping in the cake pan. Fifty-five minutes later, here it is, just out of the oven.
Here’s one day later, flipped and uncovered.
Here’s a slice.
Current status: no travel-writing book, one Amazon claim, tighter pants.
