Additional Time:

4 hrs 35 mins

Ingredients

  • cup sugar

  • 3 eggs, slightly beaten

  • 1 (12 ounce) can (1 1/2 cups) evaporated milk

  • cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 tablespoon Fresh fruit

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. To caramelize sugar: In 8-inch heavy skillet, cook 1/3 cup sugar over medium-high heat until sugar starts to melt, shaking skillet occasionally to heat sugar evenly. Do not stir. Once sugar starts to melt, reduce heat to low. Cook about 5 minutes or until all of the sugar is melted and golden brown, stirring as needed with wooden spoon.

  2. Immediately divide caramelized sugar among six 6-ounce custard cups; tilt cups to coat bottoms evenly. Allow to cool slightly.

  3. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine eggs, evaporated milk, 1/3 cup sugar and vanilla.

  4. Place custard cups in 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Divide egg mixture among custard cups. Place baking pan on oven rack. Pour hottest tap water available into baking pan around custard cups to a depth of about 1/2 inch.

  5. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted near center of each flan comes out clean. Remove cups from water. Cool on wire rack. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.

  6. To unmold, loosen edges of flans with knife, slipping point between flans and side of custard cups. Invert dessert plate over each flan; turn plate and custard cup over together. Remove cups from flans. Spoon any caramelized sugar that remains in cups on top. If desired, serve with fresh fruit.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
