This recipe was entered in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest, a compilation of the world’s best food blogs which was published in Fall 2010.
In my search to incorporate our family's mixed cultures and traditions this holiday season, I combined pumpkin and flan...inspired by my favorite Chocoflan by Rick Bayless. I also entered this recipe into the Bakespace Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin Puree giveaway! The really cool thing about this cake is that the longer it sits in the fridge...the moister it becomes...I think it has to do with the moisture from the flan layer on top. The combination of the two layers tastes oddly like pumpkin pie...only more complex...so addictingly wonderful.
Have you started any new traditions by mixing cultures and foods from the different backgrounds in your family or circle of friends?
