Flan Recipe (Version 1)
A reasonable easy Flan recipe.
You will find flan on the menu of almost any Mexican restaurant, since a smooth, soothing caramel custard makes the perfect finish to any hearty, spicy, intensely flavored main course. This version works beautifully all by itself or with a bowl of fresh strawberries to spoon alongside.

FLAN (Recipe 1)
(Serves 6)

I N G R E D I E N T S:

  • 1 cup and 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 13oz cans evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

PREHEAT oven to 325 degrees. You also need 6 ramekins or other specialty flan cookware and a large baking pan to put them in.

POUR 1 cup sugar in a warm pan over medium heat. Constantly stir sugar until it browns and becomes caramel. Immediately pour approximately 2-3 teaspoons of the caramel into each ramekin, tilting the ramekins to swirl the caramel around the sides. You may reheat the caramel if it starts to harden.
IN a MIXER, blend the eggs together then slowly mix in the milk followed by the other 1/2 cup of sugar, then the vanilla blending smooth after each ingredient is added.
POUR the custard mixture into caramel lined ramekins. Place ramekins in a large glass or ceramic baking dish and fill the dish with 1-2 inches of hot water.
BAKE for 45 minutes in the water bath and check with a knife off to the side of center. If knife comes out clean, they're done.
REMOVE from water bath and let cool. Let each ramekin cool in refrigerator for 1 hour. Invert each ramekin onto a small plate, letting the caramel sauce flow over the custard.

Hint: Make sure you test with the knife off to the side of the center as the flan will continue to cook after the ramekins are removed from the water bath.
