Hey guys and welcome to back to my blog. Today I have a sweet tooth so it will give you guys one of my Abuela’s most famous desserts. FLAN! Flan is a gelatin type sweet that is very common in all of Latin America. My Abuela tends to make it with lots of love that’s why it’s my favorite (P.s that love is really just patience.) This yummy desert takes about 20 minutes to prep however, about an hour to cook, soo make some time for your yummy flan. And be careful you don’t burn yourself!n 

You will need:
1 1/2 cups of sugar
6 egg yolks
2 Cups of milk
3 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
1 lemon peel
1/4 tsp salt
1 cinnamon stick
1/4 cup water

How To Make:

Prepare a caramel by adding the 1/4 cup of water to 3/4 cups of sugar in a small saucepan over medium to low heat. Stir while cooking until the sugar starts melting. Let it simmer. Use a pastry brush dipped in water to wash the sides of the pan free of granular sugar. When sugar starts to thicken and turn brown remove from heat and add 2 cubes of ice to stop the cooking process, being very careful not to get burned with any splattering that may occur. Coat a warm baking dish or round mold by pouring the caramel and swirl it around the sides and bottom. put the coated mold aside ( By the way the mold should be 9 inches in diameter).
