How to Make Whole Eggs Leche Flan
Making flan is relatively easy but a few minor mistakes can lead to a disappointing outcome (oh, I've been there!). But that is less likely to happen using my recipe.
MAKE THE CARAMEL
You can caramelize the sugar in the oven or....
...in the stove-top
MAKE THE FLAN
After caramelizing the sugar, we can now make the custard.
Secret to a smooth and silky flan...
Blend all the custard ingredients together until no white streaks are visible.
the mixture through a sieve or muslin cloth to remove air bubbles.
Bake the flan using the hot water bath method.
A water bath adds moisture to the oven and provides a more even, slower heat source than the direct heat of an oven.
The flan is cooked when the center is set but will still be a bit jiggly.
Do not bake for more than 45 minutes
otherwise, the flan will overcook and become bubbly and curdled.
