Flan Me Up Baby

Creamy Spongy Caramel Covered Craziness. Love me some Flan and have been craving it for a while. Figured out why we don’t make it often- I made two (8 inch) custards and we ate one whole one between us! When I say us I mean me and William!!! Ahhhhh!!! πŸ€ͺ

I prefer the spanish version with eggs, milk and real vanilla. No cream cheese in this version just a few simple ingredients and you have pure magic….I like to add a pinch of salt to the custard blend and a wee bit of fresh squeezed orange juice and a whisper of spices like nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. Really just a hint πŸ˜‰ I also add a pinch of salt to the sugar once it begins to bubble and you gotta watch that sugar (like a hawk!!) so you don’t burn it and then move quickly to pour it in your flan pan before adding the custard and baking. Bake one hour in a water bath fully covered and then check to see if it’s done (toothpick, butter knife, should come out clean) let cool COMPLETELY!! This does not mean stick it in the fridge and rush it. Lol. Let it chill out on the counter before you flip it and then be sure to scrape alllllllllllll that yummy caramel sauce out on top and then slice and share. Or try to share. πŸ˜‚
