Creme caramel meets the softest ever sponge in this cracker dessert. This Vietnamese flan cake is sweet and creamy, light and airy, plus that just-set toffee is taken juuuuust to the edge for a rich finish. If you only try one of these desserts, make it this one.

Microwave Butterscotch Self-saucing Pudding
