FLAN FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

FLAN-TORTA DE RICOTTA 013

I wanted to repost this recipe as it is such a pretty flan and perfect for St. Valentine’s.

FLAN-TORTA DE RICOTTA 008 Ingredients:

1 – 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 – 12 oz can evaporated milk
14 oz whole milk
8 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla extract

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.

Caramel: In a small pan, (teflon coated) add a cup of sugar and heat until it begins to dissolve. Shake the pan slightly (do not stir) until all the sugar has melted. Increase the flame and let the sugar bubble and color. Pour the caramel into the mold and quickly turn it around in all directions to coat mold.

Flan: Beat all the above ingredients well. Use a strainer when ready to pour into caramel prepared mold. Place mold into large pan and fill with hot water (Bain-marie) cook for about 45 minutes or until you insert a toothpick into the flan and it comes out clean.
