Flan – 1

Posted in : Asian, Baking, Desserts & Sweets, Latin American, Pacific Island food, Party, Thai on by : sujeesha Tags: , ,

Flan is a very simple dessert, the origin of which is claimed by different countries.

A Portuguese friend of my taught me the traditional method of making flan and its the bomb.

I use less eggs than most recipes out there because i done like my flan too eggy.

Also, I have used Smuckers caramel sauce instead of making caramel from scratch to save some time.

Enjoy your dessert time!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F.
  2. Fill a large baking tray with 1-2 inches of water.
  3. Squeeze smuckers caramel syrup just enough to coat bottoms of 8 ramkins.
  4. Now place ramekins on the tray and place water bath in preheating oven.
  5. Beat eggs in a blender for a few seconds.
  6. Pour in condensed milk and blend a little bit more.
  7. Now fill empty condensed milk can with whole milk twice and pour into the egg mixture. Add sugar and vanilla extract and blend for a minute. Custard is ready to make our flan.
  8. Carefully remove water bath from pre-heated oven.
  9. With a ladle gently scoop out prepared custard into caramel lined ramekins.
  10. Place water bath back in the oven and bake for about an hour (or more) or until top of the custard is evenly golden brown. :- At this point a tooth pick or a little knife inserted would come out clean.
  11. Remove water bath from the oven and remove ramekins from water bath and let cool. Refrigerate ramekins until serving time.
  12. Just before serving, run a small knife around edge of flan to release it from ramekins and invert onto serving plates. Caramel sauce will flow over flan. Enjoy your flan!!
