Enjoy our easy version of the creamy Spanish custard dessert known as flan that’s the perfect sweet ending to a fancy company meal or even a weeknight meal with the family.

What You'll Need:
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups milk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. In a small nonstick skillet, stir 1/2 cup sugar over medium heat until completely melted and caramel-colored, about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Immediately pour melted sugar into a 9-inch glass pie plate, coating bottom of plate. (Be careful when working with heated sugar; it is very hot.)
     
  3. In a medium bowl, beat eggs with vanilla. In a small bowl, combine milk with remaining sugar then beat into egg mixture. Pour over caramelized sugar then place pie plate into a pan of hot water, with just enough water to go about halfway up sides of plate.
     
  4. Bake 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted into center comes out clean. Let cool 20 minutes then cover and chill 1 hour, or until ready to serve. Right before serving, invert custard onto a 10- or 12-inch rimmed serving plate so caramel sauce doesn’t run off plate.
     

This creamy Spanish dessert works after any meal, so how 'bout trying it after a dinner of Old World Spanish Chicken?

My daughter lives in Spain. I've enjoyed FLAN often over there. That's why I am so happy to find this easy recipe to make it! Faith
