This delicious cold dessert is to die for!! Specially since it is sweetened with condensed milk, and this is the first time I add to it heavy cream..A Brazilian friend told me to add it and yummy, it turned out soo delicious!
Since this required a little more effort to prepare it, I thought of adding pictures to make it easier.
Prior to doing the flan, we have to do the caramel. So for this we need:
2 cups of sugar (regular, granulated)
1/2 cup of hot water
Lets start by putting the 2 cups of sugar in the flan form which is usually the one with the hole in the middle and heat it to let it melt. What worked for me is to increase the heat and decrease it every once in a while, I would increase it and the sugar would start melting and the low heat would allow them to settle and melt the rest. Do what works for you!
After all sugar has melted, step away a little from the pan and pour the hot water. Be careful because it will boil and maybe splash around. Few second and it will calm down. Keep whisking.
Once it reached below picture, spread around the caramel. You can do this by moving the pan in circular motion or maybe using a brush or a spoon.
Now we get to do the Flan.
2 cans of condensed milk
2 cans of milk (measure with the condensed milk can)
200-250ml of heavy cream
1 tbsp of corn flour
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. Blend all ingredients. Pour them on the caramelized form. Set banhe-marie method and cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45min. Remove foil and bake another 15min until toothpick comes out clean.
Once cooked, put in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours. I love leaving it overnight, and it is ok to leave it for a day or 2 before serving. Just slowing flip it on a big plate and here is the beauty!
