A classic dessert that is loved by all, this flan is made with simple ingredients. A soothing warm custard is a divine finish to any meal.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 3/4 cups water
- 1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In heavy skillet, over medium heat, cook sugar, stirring constantly until melted and caramel-colored. Pour into ungreased 1 1/2 -quart ring mold* or 9-inch round or square baking pan, tilting to coat bottom completely. In medium bowl, beat eggs; stir in water, EAGLE BRAND®, vanilla and salt. Pour over caramelized sugar; set pan in larger pan (a broiler pan). Fill larger pan with 1-inch hot water. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool. Chill. Loosen side of flan with knife; invert onto serving plate with rim. Garnish as desired. Refrigerate leftovers.
* If using ring mold, decrease sugar to 1/3 cup.
