Delish Flan Recipe!

What is Flan?  It is a baked caramel custard with a layer of soft caramel on top, as opposed to creme brulee, which is a custard with a hard caramel top.
My favorite flan (custard) is my grandmother's recipe.  There are different variations, but her recipe is the best in my opinion.  It is so rich, so creamy and so sweet.

It is a real treat!  


Preheat oven 325 degrees.

1. Melt sugar in the mold you will use for the flan over medium heat.  Add half cup of water and stir constantly until it forms a dark caramel.  Completely cover interior with the caramel then cover with foil.

2. In a bowl, mix eggs, vanilla, salt and all the milk.  Strain the mix, then pour carefully to avoid disturbing the caramel mold candy.  Cover tightly with foil.  Place mold carefully in a casserole dish with water, it will prevent the caramel candy from burning and it's called waterbath, bake for one hour covered or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
* You may also use the old fashion way, by cooking it over the stove like my grandma.  For this process use a large pot with a bit of water and place mold in the pot tightly covered.  Do not allow water to splash into custard!!

3. Loosen the edge of the flan from mold, place on a tray and turn over mold. Refrigerate before serving.

So you don' t feel like doing all that hard work but still want flan?  Try these;
It's not as rich as the recipe, but still tasty and easy to make, just follow the instructions on the box.
