Made Flan

"I’m sorry because I’ve always been your biggest flan." -- Jim Halpert

We ate Mexican food tonight, so J came up with the great idea to make flan.  We decided to try out a quick recipe before dinner.

I melted some whole cane sugar and a little water in a saucepan.


I poured the melted sugar into six ramekins, and it hardened on the bottom.  Meanwhile, I beat four eggs.

I boiled some coconut milk, vanilla, and a pinch of salt.

After adding another half a cup of sugar, I stirred it up and poured the eggs in gradually.  I poured this mixture into the ramekins on top of the hardened sugar.

I put this into a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.  I took it out of the oven and let it cool.

After the ramekins cooled for a bit, I put them in the fridge for a little while.  After they were chilled, I cut around the custard of one and flipped it upside down.

The flan came out pretty well.  It tasted pretty good.  I can definitely make something like this again, but I’d probably do a couple things differently next time.  I would probably use regular sugar and I think I may have put the eggs in a little too quickly.  It should incorporate into the milk before I add more.  Lastly, I would probably prepare it earlier so it could be in the refrigerator longer.  That way it could set up a little firmer.

It’s not my
favorite dessert that I’ve made this year, but it is not difficult and tastes delicious.
