Mexican flan with dulce de leche
this flan it’s amazing! My friend Thania from Puebla gave me recipe of it, it’s very easy and result is always perfect, thanks Thania!
How to make dulce de leche: put a can of condensed milk (around 400g) in a high pan, cover with water and let it boil gently for 3 hours. Warnings:
- water has to cover always the can
- let it cool before open it
how to make 9 small flan:
preheat oven at 170°C. mix 400g dulce de leche with 400g evaporated milk (not sweet). Add 6 eggs and mix. In the meanwhile make a light caramel to fold bottom of your 9 moulds. Pour batter into. Put moulds in a large pan filled with hot water, cover with aluminum sheet and bake in oven for one hour.
Don’t know how to make light caramel? In a pan put 200g sugar and 2 tbsp water. Boil and keep on boiling until you have a light brown color and if you put a spoon on it comes out with a thin filament. (all this it takes not more than 5 minutes) if you feel that your caramel its burned don’t be lazy, do a new one or all taste of flan would be bad.
