In Reply to: Flan "Cuban Milk Custard" sm posted by a cook on September 25, 2010 at 04:21:40:
: I used to visit a 98-year-old Cuban man in a nursing home. He came from Cuba and ended up living in Key West for most of his life, working in a men's clothing store. When he retired, he moved up here to be near family.
: He gave me this recipe that he tells me tastes like traditional Cuban flan.
: 1 can condensed milk
: 1 can evaporated milk
: 3 egg yolks (if eggs are small, use 4)
: 1 teaspoon vanilla
: 1/4 cup sugar
: Preheat oven to 350
: Mix condensed milk, evaporated milk, egg yolks and vannilla with electric mixer. Mix well.
: Brown sugar in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring occasionally until melted and caramel color. Pour on sides and bottom of loaf pan.
: Pour mixture into loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 45 min to an hour.
: The only thing I can add to this, is be sure to mix with the mixer very, very well or your flan will be grainy,
