Hello everyone! Welcome to another sweet post.

I like to try the original recipe at least once before starting with crazy variations.

Ricardo, on the other hand, is a kitchen maniac, a fan of turning everything weird into something weirder, and always (well, not always) gets those incredible savory dishes.

As I hope you are like me and want to start from the beginning, we share this version of crème caramel from Le Cordon Bleu.

You will love it so much. This is an amazingly good-looking dessert, and instead of spending hours you don’t have on a cake, making this in advance is so simple!

Is a tasty classic that makes everyone wonder when you became such a star chef!

To acquire the perfect consistency it’s important that it stay in the fridge all night.

Due to the earthquake that occurs in my country a few days ago, our fridge did not respond and was completely shut down, so our Easy Flan Recipe wasn’t refrigerated the time it needed. As a result, the slice picture looks a little too soft.

Sometimes you have to face unexpected problems.

Everyone is ok, and I was tempted to call this recipe something that has to do with earthquakes and shakes, but I realize earthquakes aren’t funny, they are actually pretty scary.

So, first of all, leaving apart that time I tried to cook the flan on the stove and it got soaked, my experience with this recipe is always great.

Servings 8

Ingredients

For the Caramel

  • 500 ml Milk 2 Cups

Instructions

For the Caramel

  1. Put the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring a boil. Let boil without remove.

  2. As soon as the caramel color turns golden, remove it and pour it into the flan mold, bathing the base and sides.

  3. Reserve.

For the Flan

  1. Preheat oven to 170 °C OR 338 °F

  2. Put eggs and yolks, sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Whisk softly until combine.

  3. Heat the milk, without let it boil and pour slowly over the egg mixture, without stop whisking.

  4. Sift before pouring into flan mold.

  5. Pour enough boiling water around them, on a water bath, to come halfway up the sides.

  6. Bake for 50 minutes. Until the center jiggles but the sides don't.

  7. Refrigerate all night. To serve, loosen the edges with the tip of a sharp knife.

I have some tips for you, for an ever perfect Easy Flan Recipe:

1) Make the caramel before starting with anything else. It needs care and you don’t want to overcook it. Darker the caramel, the more bitter it will be.
2) When mixing the ingredients, don’t whisk too much. You don’t want any air bubbles!
3) Always sift the mixture before bake, it will result in a smoother flan.
4) If you still can see air bubbles on the surface of the flan before putting in the oven, you can absorb them with a paper towel.
5) Be careful. Make sure the baking water only simmers, never boils. Or you will have many holes in your flan.
