Flan     My all time favorite dessert ever!

Serves 6 to 8

Prep time: 10 minutes

cooking time: 50 to 55 minutes

Ingredients

1 cup white granulated sugar

3 eggs (regular size eggs)

2 egg yolk

1 can 12 oz. evaporated milk

1 can 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk

3 teaspoons vanilla extract

 

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. In a sauce pan over low to medium heat place sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla until it melts and turns a golden light brown.
  3. Pour HOT melted sugar into a warm 9” round glass baking dish. (warm up the dish first, it will make it easier to coat the bottom completely with the sugar).
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk and a teaspoon of vanilla.  Mix until smooth, pour into the baking dish.
  5. Place 9 inch baking dish on a cookie sheet and pour in about a 1/2 inch of water into the sheet.
  6. Bake for 55 minutes.  Let cool to room temperature and place in the refrigerator.
  7. Once chilled, run a dull knife around the edges just to make sure the flan doesn’t stick and flip onto a plate by placing a plate over the baking dish and invert to remove the Flan and serve.
