There are two significant parts to making a Flan recipe. Before we make a decent and predictable flan, we need to make a decent, tacky sweet caramel sauce.
To achieve the principal part of the dish, we start with two fixings: sugar and water. Put 8 tablespoons of granulated white sugar in a pan, setting it to a medium intensity. Adding water as indicated by how thick you maintain that your flan should be. The more water you put into your blend, the less thick your caramel becomes. For this recipe I utilize 2 ½ tablespoons.

Put a pot on medium intensity and pour in your 1 ¼ cups of vanished milk. We maintain that the milk should stew, not bubble, so don’t put an excess of intensity on the oven. While this is occurring, we start a cycle called treating. Scoop around 5 to 6 tablespoons of the milk a tablespoon at a time. Any other way, the egg could turn out to be cooked and solidified! Empty it into our egg and sugar combination, mixing it well and completely. At the point when two fixings at various temperatures are joined at a sluggish speed, the part with the lower temperature gradually climbs to meet the other’s.
Whenever you have blended the egg, sugar, and spoonfuls of milk all around ok, return that combination back into the pot (gradually, cautiously!) with the leftover milk.
