Creamy yummy Flan...




Ingredients:
Sugar  -3/4cup
Sweetened Condensed Milk  - 1Tin 
Milk -same amount as condensed milk.(I measured the milk in the same tin)
Cream cheese, softened -3 tbsp
Eggs  - 5 large
Vanilla extract- 11/2 tsp



  • Preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius.
  • Heat sugar in small non stick saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes or until dissolved and caramel colored. Quickly pour into bottom of the dish for the flan.
  • Blend all the remaining ingredients until well combined. 
  • Pour mixture into prepared  dish. Place the dish in a roasting pan on a kitchen towel
  • Fill roasting pan with warm water up to half of the flan dish height. 
  • Bake for l hour and 20 to 30 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. 
  • When you shake the pan you may feel the inner part is not set.It would further set on refrigeration.
  • Remove flan from hot water; cool to room temperature on wire rack. 
  • Refrigerate for several hours or overnight. 
  • Run knife around rim; gently shake to loosen. 
  • Keep the serving dish on top of the flan dish and then Invert onto the serving dish.





Note:
  • Cream cheese is optional in a flan recipe but this gives it a denser and more creamier texture.
  • This can also prepared in a pressure cooker with the weight on.The flan dish should be tightly covered with a foil while cooking.Switch of the cooker when the first whistle is out.Open once all the steam is out.
  • Most recipes uses evaporated milk instead of whole milk.I used what I had at that point of time.Anyway it wont make much a difference.
