|RECIPE: 8 - 9-inch flan pan (stainless steel
1. Caramelize the sugar first because you will need to
allow the sugar to cool. Pour sugar in the baking pan, pour sugar over the
bottom of the baking dish and heat on medium. Decrease to low heat and allow to cook until sugar begins to turns deep
amber. Moving the pan occasionally for about 5 minutes for the sugar
to caramelize evenly. Remove from
heat and set aside to cool. (Best to set onto a granite counter to cool
2. After sugar has cooled. Pre-heat
oven to 350 degrees-F.
3. First whisk eggs and beat well, (or use hand
mixer). Then add a can of sweetened condensed
milk and water and mix together. Add the vanilla and yellow food coloring (yes, the original recipe called
for the food coloring). Strain custard mixture before pouring into the cooled flan
pan. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
4. Set the flan pan inside larger baking pan (or Pyrex dish) and set in the oven.
Add warm water to
the outer pan for a water bath. Reduce the oven to 325-degrees and bake for about 1 hour.
Test if the flan id cooked by inserting a knife in the center, if the
knife blade is wet, increase temperature to 350 degrees and cook for an
additional 15 to 30 minutes.
