If you like egg custard, you will really like Flan. We’re continuing our Mexican theme week here on the blog.  Flan is a Spanish egg custard. It has it’s own special texture and flavor. This recipe came from my Grandpa Jack who is a great cook and likes to experiment with recipes.

My grandmother’s family came to this country from Spain so our family meals always had a lot of different flavors.

Ingredients
  • 7 large eggs
  • ¾ cup of sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cans of evaporated milk (13 or 14 oz)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup brown sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Beat the eggs, add sugar & salt. Beat in cans of milk, and add vanilla.
  3. Place brown sugar in the bottom of a round pan. (The pan should be 8 or 10 inches by about 2½ to 3 inches deep so it will hold the fluid).
  4. Even the brown sugar so it covers the bottom of the pan.
  5. Pour the milk solution over a spoon onto the brown sugar. (The spoon is to prevent disturbing the brown sugar).
  6. Place this pan in another pan with about 1 inch of water in the bottom to prevent it from burning.
  7. Place in oven and bake for approx. 1 hour.
  8. Test with fork or knife and cook until nothing sticks to the fork/knife.
  9. Remove from oven, cool, cut around the edges and quickly turn over on a plate held tightly to pan.
