Flan

This is one of my favorite desserts. It's simple and easy although it looks really fancy and of course it's absolutely delicious.

We need the following ingredients for 12 little muffin cups (mine are made of silicon):
  • 4 eggs
  • 10 tbs sugar
  • 2 tbs vanilla sugar
  • 400 ml whole milk


Follow these instructions:
  1. Beat the eggs with an electric whisk.
  2. Add 4 tbs sugar and the vanilla sugar.
  3. Slowly add the milk and stir until everything is creamy.
  4. Meanwhile lightly heat the other 6 tbs sugar in a sauce pan until it's caramelized but be careful it shouldn't be too dark.


  5. Put one tbs of caramel into each muffin cup, add the egg milk as above.
  6. Use a big casserole to make a water bath for the flan.
  7. Cover it with aluminum foil.
  8. Leave it in the oven for 1 hour at 200*C.


Don't you get hungry too? Of course you can always decorate the flan with some fruits.

My tip:

Use silicon muffin cups because it's easier to clean when there is caramel residue.

If you don't have any, you can always use a small casserole instead. The advantage will be that there won't be as much residue for some reason, but the downside is that it doesn't look as fancy.
