At then end of the Paella blog I mentioned this dessert:
Blueberry Cream Cheese Flan

If you like cheesecake (and I don’t know many people who don’t), you’ll love this flan. It is super simple to make – mix sugar, eggs, cream cheese and milk. Divide mixture into 6 dishes and toss in a handful of blueberries, then bake in a water bath. The result is a rich and creamy flan dotted with fresh blueberries.

PREPARATION
  1. Heat oven to 400F.
  2. Heat water on stove top or in microwave. Set aside.
  3. Place sugar, eggs and cream cheese in a medium mixing bowl. Mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until blended. Pour in milk and continue to mix for 1 minute.
  4. Divide the blueberries between the 6 ramekins. Pour flan mixture into the ramekins.
  5. Place the ramekins in a broiler pan and pour hot water into the pan. Make sure to pour enough water, so water level covers 1/2 of height of ramekins.
  6. Bake in oven for about 30 minutes, or until flan rises.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Run knife around edge of each ramekin, then turn out onto plates. Drizzle a tablespoon of honey over the top of each flan and serve.

If flan won’t be served immediately, allow to cool on the counter for 20 minutes and refrigerate until serving.
