Easy FlanFrom ADOBE HACIENDA BED & BREAKFAST
Prep Time:20 minutes
Cooking Time:1 hour
2 cups of sugar
6 large eggs
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 13oz can evaporated milk
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. You will need 6 ramekins or other specialty flan cook ware and a large baking pan to put them in.
Pour 2 cups of sugar in warm pan over medium heat. Constantly stir sugar until it browns and becomes caramel. Quickly pour 2-3 tablespoons of caramel in each ramekin, tilting it to swirl the caramel around the sides.
In a mixer with a whisk, blend eggs together. Mix in the milks then add the vanilla. Blend smooth after each ingredient is added.
Pour custard into caramel lined ramekins. Place ramekins in a large glass or ceramic baking dish and fill with about 1-2 inches of water. Bake for 45 minutes in the water bath and check with a knife just to the side of the center. If knife comes out clean then it is ready.
Remove and let cool. Let each ramekin cool in refrigerator for 1 hour. Invert each ramekin onto a small plate, the caramel sauce will flow over the custard.
