Sweet Comfort



Here's a Leche Flan or Creme Caramel recipe when you're craving something rich, heavy and heavenly.

To caramelize sugar:

In a small pan over medium low heat, melt 1/3 cup sugar, taking care not to burn it. When sugar has melted and turned golden brown, vigorously stir in two tablespoons water to blend. Transfer to a small leche flan mold. Swirl caramelized sugar inside the mold. Set aside.

Flan Mixture:

6 eggs, beaten
1-1/2 cups evaporated milk
1 can condensed milk
3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract


Prehaeat oven at 350 and fill a big pan with about 1/2-inch highwater. In a bowl, blend thoroughly flan mixture ingredients. Pour mixture into leche flan mold with caramelized sugar (see procedure above). Place mold on pan with water in oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until firm. Let cool. Chill before serving. Unmold from container to a serving dish.
