Creamy Mexican Flan
Whenever my mom and I go to a restaurant that serves flan, we always have to save room to share a piece for dessert. With this Creamy Mexican Flan recipe we can make it home anytime we get a craving.
3/4 cup sugar
14 ounce sweetened condensed milk, not evaporated milk
1 3/4 cups water
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place caramelized sugar in a heavy skillet, cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar is melted and has a caramel color.
Pour sugar into ungreased 1 1/2 -quart 9-inch round baking pan, coat bottom completely.
In medium bowl, beat eggs; stir in water, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk and salt.
Pour over caramelized sugar; set pan in larger pan . Fill larger pan with 1-inch hot water.
Bake flan at 350 degree for 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.
