I know it has been a long time since we’ve had a recipe. I don’t know why, I’m still cooking just as much. Oh I forgot, I’ve been on the road a lot lately, maybe that’s it.
Next week we will continue the belief window–I find it interesting and I’m really interested in seeing where God fits into this window. I know He does.
I think I will make this recipe tonight. LOL I got on the scale this morning and it’s not good news, I am toying with the idea of going back to my original place and start again. I can’t, I won’t gain all that weight back. Having said that–here we go.
You need a corning pan to sit on your stove top. Put a little over 1/2 cup of regular sugar in the pan, and let it heat. It will melt, but first it will lump and clump together. Be not dismayed it will smooth out. Stir, and keep stirring. Don’t let it burn. Low heat. When it becomes liquid take the pan and tilt round and round coating the sides til the caramel has cooled completely. Now you are ready for the filling.
4 eggs, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 can evaporated milk, 2 tsp. Vanilla. This is additional sugar from the above. That’s it. Beat with mixer til sugar dissolved. Pour through a strainer to trap the squigglys in the eggs. Pour into the sugar-coated pan and put this pan in a pan of water, preheated, then into the oven for 50 minutes. Test with a knife to come out clean. 350 degrees.
Cool Refrigerate several hours. To serve turn flip the pan on platter or plate, hopefully with a lip to contain the sauce, or a low sided bowl. The sauce is yummy. Make sure the flan is loose in the pan before you flip so it doesn’t break. You need to press your dish right against the pan, and flip.
I just attempted to make this, here’s what I learned. You can’t pour the liquid sugar into another pan or bowl, it cools off too fast. Don’t let your oven give out as you are baking this. Yup, right in the middle of the baking my oven went beep, beep, beep and quit. It won’t go back on, I still have a light so that means I have electricity but no heart or lighted panel. UGH–I think that means expensive fix.
What about the flan? I stuck it in the microwave on high, it ran over and now it’s done and cooling, I don’t expect it to be good after all that. Company coming tonight for dinner, think we will have ice cream. LOL
Good luck. LOL
