FLAN(D)                  USENET Cookbook                  FLAN(D)


     FLAN - A rich Mexican custard

     This recipe comes from the Delicias Culinarias cookbook that
     I brought from Mexico.

     3/4 cup   sugar
     2         eggs
     2         egg yolks
     2 cups    milk
     1 tsp     vanilla extract

          (1)  In a small kettle, heat 3 Tbsp of sugar with 1 tsp
               of water until the mixture turns brown. Pour the
               mixture into 4 gelatin molds. Move the molds
               around so that the mixture coats the interior. Set

          (2)  Mix the eggs, sugar, milk, and the vanilla

          (3)  Pour the mixture into the molds.  Put the molds
               over a deep pan with water (double boiler or bain
               marie technique) for 1 hr in a 350 deg. F oven.
               Keep the water in the pan at the same level by
               adding boiling water.

          (4)  Cool and put it in the refrigerator. Unmold the
               flan before serving.

     You can substitute liquor for some of the milk to make the
     flan richer. Personally, I use 1 cup of milk and 1 cup rom-
     pope (Mexican eggnog).

     Be careful when coating glass molds as they can break
     because of the sudden change in temperatures. You have to do
     it fast as the mixture hardens very quickly.

     Difficulty: moderate.  Time: 2 1/2 hours Precision: no need
     to measure.
