Definition flan

Etymology 1

[1846] Borrowed from French flan (“cheesecake, custard tart, flan”) (partially via Spanish flan, itself from the French), from Old French flaon (> Middle English flaon, flaun (“pie; cake”)), from Late Latin fladō (“flat cake”), from Frankish flado, flatho (“flat cake”), from Proto-Germanic *flaþô (“flat cake”), from Proto-Indo-European *pl̥h₂t- (“broad, flat”), from Proto-Indo-European *pelh₂- (“to spread out, be broad, be flat”). Akin to Old High German flado (“flat cake, offering cake”). More at flathe. The word has largely displaced its doublets flathe and flawn.
