Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This flan is a caramel-glazed custard with touches of brandy flavoring, nutmeg, and ginger.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • SPRINKLE 3/4 cup sugar into a 10-inch round cakepan; place pan over medium heat. Using oven mitts, caramelize sugar by shaking pan occasionally until sugar melts and turns light brown; cool. (Sugar may crack as it cools.)
  • PROCESS condensed milk and next 8 ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Pour over caramelized sugar in cakepan.
  • PLACE cakepan in a large shallow pan. Pour hot water into large pan to a depth of 1 inch.
  • BAKE at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  • REMOVE cakepan from water; cool on a wire rack 25 minutes. Cover and chill 8 hours.
  • LOOSEN edges of flan with a metal spatula, and invert onto a serving plate. Dip tops of pecan halves in caramel mixture left in pan; arrange, coated side up, around edge of flan.
