How to make it

  • Put sugar in 9x3 cake pan. place on medium heat burner to carmelize the sugar. heat until sugar liquifies (3-5 minutes). when sugar is golden brown remove from heat and allow to cool and harden.
  • in a blender, mix until smooth almonds, condensed milk, milk, eggs, yolks, and vanilla.
  • pour mixture into the cooled carmelized sugar.
  • place the 9x3 cake pan into a larger container that contains approx 1" of water. place an aluminium tent loosely over the cake pan.
  • bake for 1hr 15min until the flan is firm in the center.
  • remove and allow to cool a bit before placing in the refridgerator for +1hrs to cool and set.
  • to serve, run a spatula along the edge of the pan to loosen. flip over and scrape the carmel from the bottom of the pan. enjoy!

    I have made my own Homemade Vanilla,there is a difference.

    My Son likes Flan,I think he enjoys using the hand held torch,to carmelize the top.

    Thank-you for a very nice recipe.

    Kind Regards

    mexican vanilla is the "real", good stuff. a major export from mexico. "Adams" vanilla extract is a pretend vanilla. real vanilla extract is made from alcohol and vanilla bean only. you can taste the difference, making mexican vanilla worth a purchase. you can also make your own vanilla extract by soaking a vanilla bean in a jar with a cup of good vodka. takes approx 6 months to cure fully.
