How I Made My First Flan

I had one of those days when my teeth are aching for some sweets. I saw a delicious photo of flan, and I had to make it. After looking over the ingredients and the process of cooking, I thought it was easy enough for even me to attempt. So let's get to it, shall we?


1 small can of condensed milk
10 egg yokes only
1 cup of evaporated milk
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of water
Few drops of lemon juice

Beat your egg yokes, add condensed and evaporated milk, plus vanilla extract. Beat and set aside!

Making caramelized sugar:

Pour your sugar and water into a pot on medium heat, cook until the sugar dissolved, and then squeeze in a few drop of lemon juice to keep the sugar from crystallized. (Believe me, after burning two times, and a few trips back and forth online, this process is very crucial.)

Once the sugar is boiling, stop stirring and let it cook on medium high heat. In the meantime, get a dish of ice ready.

When your sugar cooked to a consistency of golden brown color, take the pot off the heat and set it on the ice dish to stop the process of cooking.

Then pour your caramelized sugar in a mold, add your egg mixture, and steam for 30-35 minutes! Remove and let it cool for 5 minutes. Refrigerate before serving. This recipe is the combination of many searches to make it worked for me. Registered & Protected
