Simple Flan Recipe

Do you like cooking for the holidays? Do you make sweet treats?

Then check out this easy flan recipe I learned from my mom who learned it from her mom, and so on. It's unfortunate that my aunt, who is diabetic, is not able to eat this. But it's tradition.

Amazingly Delicious, yet, Easy Flan Recipe

Traditional Flan

  • 4-5 whole Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 can Evaporated Milk
  • 1 can Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 deg F.

Heat sugar in a saucepan at medium heat. Stir frequently so that it doesn't burn.

Once the mixture becomes golden clear, pour it into a pie dish. Turn the dish frequently to evenly coat the bottom.

In a bowl, whisk the eggs, condensed and evaporated milks and vanilla. Pour mixture into the pie dish with caramelized sugar.

Bake in oven for 60 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for 15-20 minutes.

To serve, place a serving plate upside down on top of the baking dish. And invert the flan onto the plate.

I prefer mine a little chilled, so I cool it in the fridge for 2 hours.

Easy enough?

Sometimes, it's good to mix things up. Add some fruits with your flan like raspberries both for taste and health reasons. You get a delicious dessert with Vitamin C, fiber, Vitamin A, calcium, potassium and any other nutritious benefits that raspberries bring.

Here is a great video that essentially demonstrates the process of making egg-based flans. I'm using more eggs in my recipe. And I'd probably skip the salt altogether, but the lime zest is very tempting and may have to be incorporated in my normal flan routine. It's a short video. Check it out.

For non-sugary snacks, well, baked potato slices are good.
