EASY FLAN de ABUELA (grandma) ISABELITA
In a small sauce pan, make a caramel topping by taking 1 CUP OF SUGAR over very low heat, stirring slowly as the sugar melts and caramelizes. The sugar will turn a beautiful amber color.
Pour the caramel into a the mold of you choice. I recommend a round glass pyrex type dish, or if you are giving it away, a round aluminum container (sold at the Dollar Tree). Before the caramel hardens tilt the dish all around to distribute the caramel all around the bottom and sides of the dish. Let set will you make the filling.
IN A BLENDER :
1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 ts salt
1 tbls vanilla
4 eggs yolks
2 whole eggs
Blend until just mixed thru, don't whip or over blend. Pour mixture into your prepared caramelized dish.
Bake at 350 degrees BANO De MARIA STYLE ( in a water bath). This means you place your dish in a larger oven safe dish or pan fill with about 1 too 2 inches of water. BAKE 45 minutes or until you poke it with a fork and the fork comes out clean. Depending on you oven it could up to 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool. Refrigerate til chilled thru, then scrap the sides all around the edges with a knife and using another larger plate, carefully invert it.
THERE YOU HAVE IT.... A CUBAN STYLE FLAN ...YUMMIE :)
