I absolutely love this Best-Ever Flan. I spent so long looking for the best flan ever: a custard based dessert cooked with a layer of smooth caramel sauce at the bottom which ends up on top when inverted. Flan is a creamy classic the world over although it is sometimes known by its other name: crème caramel.
Although it can be time consuming, it is actually quite simple to prepare the best flan recipe ever. Start by preparing caramel and dividing it between 7 ramekins. If I am cooking for 6 people I always make an extra one as there is always a chance that one of the custard of one of the flans might split (even for a top chef)! Make a custard to top the caramel and bake the flans for 45-50 minutes. Leave to cool. If you are not serving immediately, cover the cooled flans with plastic wrap and place them in a refrigerator until you are ready to serve. You may need to let them come back to room temperature or heat them in the microwave for 30 seconds. And there you have it, the best flan recipe ever guaranteed!
To make Best-Ever Flan, you will need the following ingredients:
Steps to make Best-Ever Flan
Heat the oven and prepare ramekins
Pour caramel into ramekins
Combine cream, milk and vanilla
Whisk eggs and sugar
Add custard to ramekins
Add hot water to baking dish
Cool and chill
Remove from the ramekins
So simple and delicious!!
Best ever is exactly it, I love me Spanish dessert..next thing I'm going for is the churro apple pie.
My kids are totally hooked lol can't get enough of this.
I didn't think flan was so affordable to make myself I usually pay like 8 bucks for a good flan at my local Mexican resturant but now I'll just make it from home sooo tasty even when made by me :)
I always that flan was harder to make than this but now that I know it's not i'll be making it a lot more often.
HEAVEN ON EARTH I LOVEEE FLAN SO FREAKING MUCH OMG.
Careful when adding the vanilla extract the first time I made this I put too much and it was really untasty.
Not sure what the big deal is, just taste like dulce de leche candy to me.
Me and the hubby really enjoyed this.
Well done! Verified!
