Simple and Creamy Spanish Flan Recipe
Creamy, sumptuous vanilla custard baked until it just jiggles a little has a topping of golden caramel syrup in this traditional Spanish dessert that has conquered the New World.
This flan is made with condensed and evaporated milk and baked in a pie dish.
Awesome recipe. I've been looking for this kind of very European-styled thick, creamy flan. Almost like creme brulee but can stand on its own. I actually put the deep dish in the oven, put the empty pie pan in and weight it down, add boiling water in halfway up the outside of the pie pan, then take pie pan out and preheat the oven to 350F. I also doubled the caramel recipe since I like to give the pan a good healthy coat. As for the flan part, it's good with the extra sugar but it doesn't need it, especially with the extra caramel on top. I also find that lightly whisking the egg yolks first then adding the condensed milk and lightly whisking again and then finally adding the evaporated milk and whisking until fully blended keeps the foam down since I don't have to go at it to get the chunks blended. When the caramel in the pan cools down enough that when you add a drop of flan it doesn't cook, I put the pan in the deep dish of heated water and then carefully pour the flan mixture into the pan and cover wit
Love Flan, and this recipe is easy and good. We like the burnt caramel taste with flan, so we cooked the sugar a little extra. The flan turned out very flavorful, and the dark brown sauce took it to a new level. Will definitely be making this again! We read the directions as cooking it in the water bath, and we turned the oven to 350, it still took a little over an hour. We removed it from the water bath, and removed the foil before putting in fridge to cool. Flan was really creamy and flavorful!
