By the time you read this I will be sunning and resting in beautiful St Maarten. We will be staying on the Dutch side of the island. Last time I was there was about 20 years ago and I am so looking forward to food, rest and more food. When I return I will be commenting and reading all your posts.
I leave you this recipe of my flan. When plating, it was so beautiful and silky that I had to find a special garnish for it. Great for St. Valentines Day.
1 – 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 – 12 oz can evaporated milk
14 oz whole milk
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.
This was cut out from original flan. I just wanted to photograph an individual serving.
HASTA LA VISTA AND BUEN PROVECHO!
