Merry Christmas. My present to the world is my mother’s flan recipe. It is awesome.
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 1/2 cups milk
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
Over the low heat caramelize the sugar in a sauce pan
Pour the sugar into a 1 qt mold.
Rotate the mold until all of the inside of the mold is covered in caramel.
Set aside to cool
Combine the rest of the ingredients.
P\our mixture into the mold.
Set the mold into a pan of boiling water, and place into the oven which has been preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Bake for 1 and a half hours.
Remove from oven and let it cool on the counter top.
Once you are able to handle the mold with out burning yourself, place the mold in the refrigerator to further cool.
Use a knife around the sides of the mold to facilitate the removal of the flan.
Place serving plate on top of the mold, and then quickly invert the mold so that the flan falls onto the plate.
Gently remove the mold.
Drip excess caramel onto flan.
