But enough shop talk, let's get down to business.
Flan! I love this sweet, creamy custard dessert and it's thin burnt sugar jarabe (syrup). And I'm sure you will fall in love with Flan too, after you've tried this simply delicious recipe.
Classic Vanilla Flan
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Place the sugar in a medium saucepan.
Cook over medium heat until the sugar melts and turns a dark amber color.
Carefully pour the jarabe (syrup) into an 8-inch cake pan. Tilt the pan making sure to coat the bottom and sides with the syrup.
Puree the sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, eggs and vanilla in a blender until smooth.
Pour the milk mixture into the cake pan.
Cover the cake pan with aluminum foil. Place the cake pan inside a larger baking pan. Fill larger pan up halfway with hot water. Bake in a preheated 350ºF oven for 1 hour 20 minutes or until center of the flan has set.
Remove flan from oven and remove the foil covering; let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.
Place an inverted plate on top of cake pan. Carefully flip cake pan and plate over. Enjoy!!!
