How to make it

  • beat eggs in a bowl
  • add evaporated milk and keep beating
  • strain the mixture through a strainer
  • add can of condensed milk, vanilla and almond extracts and mix
  • preheat oven 350 degrees
  • heat cup of sugar over medium-high heat until melted/ caramelized ***do not burn sugar...continue to stir until it turns brown and all sugar is melted
  • immediately pour caramel into heat proof mold and tilt to coat bottom evenly
  • slowly pour egg and milk mixture over caramel
  • cover mold with aluminum foil or with lid if it has one..just makesure it is also heat proof
  • place covered mold into a large baking dish
  • fill large baking dish with hot water until it reaches halfway up the sides of the smaller mold
  • bake for about 50 minutes...knife inserted in center should come out clean...otherwise bake a bit longer
  • once done cool flan completely ***if using glass mold carefully place on a wire rack or towel but avoid by all means anything cold because glass mold will crack into pieces***
  • once cooled place large plate over mold and carefully flip over to invert the flan ***make sure plate is also large enough to hold extra caramel that drips down the sides of the flan
  • refrigerate atleast 2 hours or until cooled completely

    I think I overcooked the reached hard candy stage and did not want to leave my baking dish...maybe spraying with non-stick spray first would help. The custard seems a little over-cooked too. Next time I'll bake it like I do cheesecake - 1hr at 250, then 1 hr with oven off and door closed. Flavor was good though - I used coconut instead of almond; sweet, creamy and delicious.

    The technique for making the caramel and cooking in a water bath are excellent. I do not, however like using canned product (sorry).
