A decadent dessert
Not does it only requires very few ingredients but it also is super easy to make. A delicious velvety vanilla flan with a caramel top; the crème caramel. And let me tell you, growing up, I definitely ate my fair share.
119 ml Sugar
2 tbsps Water
60 ml Sugar
2 tsps Vanilla extract (or 1 vanilla pod)
474 ml Milk
3 Pcs large eggs
In a saucepan, cook the sugar and water until it is a dark golden brown (mahogany). Divide among 4 ramekins. Allow to cool.
Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Add vanilla to the milk in a saucepan and bring it to a simmer. In a bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar. Whisk in the hot liquid. Pour into the ramekins. Prepare a water bath by laying a towel in the bottom of large baking dish. Place the ramekins in the dish and fill halfway up with simmering water. Bake for about 50 minutes. The water should never boil. Remove from the oven and water. Cool. Refrigerate. Run the blade of a palette knife around the ramekins, invert and serve very cold.
