Crème caramel (flan) alla steemit!

in food •  2 years ago

Today I’m going to prepare a crème caramel with a steemit touch!


You will need:


For the Flan:

5 eggs½ litre (500 oz) milk
100 gr. Sugarvanilla extract
lemon zestpaper towel
aluminium foilBundt-style mold
sheet pan (for the bain-marie)water

For the Caramel:

100 gr. sugarhot water

As Accompaniment:

250 cm3 creampowdered sugar
300 gr. dulce de leche



  • Put the sugar in the bundt-style mold at medium heat. When the sugar turns to an amber color and starts to dissolve, add 5 spoons of hot water. Stir the mold (be carefull, use some protective kitchen mittens, as it is hot), until all the inner side of the mold is covered in caramel. Set aside.



  • Turn the oven to 150 degrees Celsius.
  • Put the eggs, vanilla extract, lemon zest, milk and sugar together in a bowl. Mix it very softly, wait until the sugar dissolves.


  • Pour the mix into the mold using a strainer.


  • On a sheet pan, put 3 sheets of absorbent paper (this will help avoiding the flan to burn on its base). Cover the mold with aluminum foil and then put the mold over the absorbent paper. Put the sheet pan on the oven and add water until it covers half the mold.

  • Cook for about 60 minutes.


  • I prepared the chantilly cream using a blue food coloring, for the steemit touch!


  • You can check if your flan is ready when you prick it with a knife and your knife remains clean. When it is ready put it on the fridge for about 6 hours. Unmold it on a deep plate to avoid that your liquid caramel floods your kitchen!


  • When served with Chantilly cream and dulce de leche we call it “flan mixto” in Argentina. So this is my “flan mixto alla steemit”:


Bon Appétit!
