Vanilla Flan /Spanish Flan

Flan or vanilla Flan/Spanish  Flan is extremely rich and delicious dessert . Universally known as Spanish desert this is almost similar to creme caramel but is made with evaporated milk and condensed milk .
It's rich and very yummy in taste .because its a very rich Dessert I bake this on special occasions only .Rest of the days I prefer my favourite Creme Caramel or Caramel Custard.
vanilla flan recipe

1 can evaporated milk (410g)
1 can condensed milk (400g)
3 eggs
1 tbsp vanilla*
3/4 cup sugar

  • Make caramel by melting the sugar in a sauce pan on medium low flame,keep stirring constantly for 3-4 minutes until you get amber colour caramel.
  • Pour the caramel in a 8/9 inch pan and swirl to coat .

  • Pour this mixture in the mould .
  • Preheat oven at 180 degree for 10minutes 
  • Bake in a water bath for 45 to 50 minutes at 180 degree Celsius or until skewer inserted comes out clean.
  • Remove the flan from the water bath and let to cool before unmoulding.
  • Refrigerate for 5-6 hours or overnight..
  • Run a knife at the edges to loosen the sides of the flan .
  • Cover with  a plate and flip to invert 
  • Serve chilled.

I have used 1 tsp vanilla paste and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
Water bath - take a baking tray , fill it with some water and place the pan with the flan mixture on it .
Be careful while placing the baking tray in the oven .
Also make sure that the water in the water bath should not enter the flan pan..
