I love flan
and make it often. It is a lot like
custard but has a caramel sauce.
Mexican Flan Recipe
1/2 c sugar
sweetened condensed milk;
1 c Milk
3 egg yolks
1/2 ts almond
1 ts vanilla extract
In a small saucepan melt
sugar over moderate heat, stirring
frequently, until sugar is a dark,
caramel-colored liquid. Remove from heat
and pour into a 4 cup metal ring molds.
Quickly turn mold to coat bottom and
sides with the caramel. Let cool so
caramel hardens. Heat oven to 325. Put
the condensed milk, milk, eggs, egg
yolks and flavorings into an electric
blender. Cover and blend to mix well.
Pour mixture into mold; put mold in a
larger pan filled with water to depth of
1/2 inch. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from
oven and remove mold from water. Cool
and then refrigerate up to 2 days. Cover
mold with an inverted serving platter.
Hold mold and platter together and turn
them over. Lift off mold. Caramel will
fall as a liquid sauce over the custard.
