Why I Love This Recipe

The flan recipe, a delicious egg custard, dates back to Roman times. The Romans domesticated chickens and eggs were plentiful. It started out as a savory dish but in Spain, became a sweet Spanish dessert with caramelized sugar. The Spanish brought it to central and South America, where it is very popular. It is often made in a mold or individual ramekins.


Ingredients You'll Need

1.5 cups sugar
1 -- 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
2-- 13 oz cans evaporated milk
1 tb vanilla
6 large eggs


Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.


Custard


Beat the eggs with a hand mixer.


Add in the condensed milk, evaporated milk, vanilla and ½ cup sugar. Mixture should be smooth.


Carmelized Sugar


Over medium heat stir 1 cup of sugar until it is brown and caramel-like.


This should take approximately five minutes,stirring constantly.


Then, immediately pour several tablespoons of the caramel into 6 remekins. Coating the bottom and sides with the caramel.


Pour the custard into the carmelized remekins.


Fill a baking dish with 1 inch of water and place the six remekins in the baking dish.


Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven.


It is done when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.


After the remekins have cooled put into the refrigerator.


When ready to serve, invert each remekin onto a small plate.
