Hello all!  Welcome back to Food ~ Flavor ~ Fun!  A place to find and share some great food ideas that are loaded with flavor, to be prepared and shared with family and friends to bring more fun and enjoyment into our lives.

Friday’s are about desserts.  This one is one of my all time favorites.  Give this sweet treat a try.  I haven’t made it in a while for myself.  I’ll be remedying that soon!  Enjoy!

Flan

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 14 oz. can sweetended condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350*

To caramelize sugar, in a heavy, large skillet, cook sugar over medium-high heat until sugar begins to melt, shaking the skillet occasionally to heat the sugar evenly.  Do not stir.  Once the sugar starts to melt, reduce heat to low and cook about 5 mins  more or until all of the sugar is melted and golden, stirring as needed with a wooden spoon.   Immediately, pour the caramelized sugar into a 9×1 inch round baking pan using a pot holder, tilt the pan to coat the bottom of the pan evenly. Let stand 10 mins.

Meanwhile, combine the eggs, egg yolks, whole milk, and sweented condensed milk, and vanilla.  Beat with wire whisk until combined but not foamy.  Place the baking pan in a large roasting pan on an oven rack.  Pour the egg mixture into the baking pan.  Pour boiling water into the roasting pan around the baking pan to a depth of ½ inch.

Bake about 35 mins or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.  Remove pan from water.   Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour.  Cover and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.

 To serve, spoon flan into desert dishes and drizzle with additional caramel mixture from bottom of the baking pan.
