Feliz Navidad... Flan recipe
Only 3 more days til Christmas... trying out some new recipes. Our family does the whole tamales, enchiladas, rice, beans, thingy for Christmas. Along with all the cookies, fudge and this year I thought I would make FLAN. Shout out to fellow scrapbooker Bonnie for this marvelous recipe, so very easy and delicious. I tried it out on my friends at work and it was hit.
Try it, you'll like it.....
3/4 cup sugar, place in pan on medium heat till sugar is melted...(do not stir). Sugar will turn a golden brown. Move the pan around to make sure all the sugar has melted, then QUICKLY pour into flan pan or 8x8 pan (which is what I used). Set aside.
1 cup whole milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
3 whole eggs
3 egg yokes
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond
Mix all these ingredients gently. Make sure your sugar mixture is cool, then pour your egg mixture ontop. Set the pan in another roasting pan and add hot water around the sides of your flan mixture. Bake in preheated oven 350 degrees for 1 hour or until firm.
When ready to serve, run a knife along the rim of the pan and invert the flan onto your serving dish and enjoy....
Feliz Navidad-Prospero Ano y Felicidad
