Easy Homemade Flan Recipe

1/2 cup granulated sugar, golden like sun-kissed oranges 3 tablespoons water, shimmering like morning dew 1/4 cup heavy cream, as rich as Spanish soil


Swirl in the Creamy Dream: Carefully whisk in the heavy cream, watching it transform into a bubbling, golden dance. 


Preheat the Oven Stage: Set your oven to 325°F (165°C), preparing for the custard's grand entrance.


Paint the Caramelized Canvas: In a small saucepan, heat the sugar and water over medium heat, stirring like an artist until the sugar melts into a deep amber glow. 


Whisk the Custard Chorus: In a large bowl, blend the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt into a smooth harmony. Slowly pour in the milk and cream, weaving them into a creamy melody.


Pour the Golden Sun: Drizzle the cooled caramel into a flan dish or individual ramekins, creating a shimmering base for the custard's spotlight.


Strain the Silky Song: Pass the custard through a fine-mesh sieve, ensuring a flawless performance. Gently fill the dish(es) to the brim, letting the custard bathe in the caramel's warmth.


Prepare the Water Bath Stage: Place the flan dish(es) in a larger baking dish. Fill the baking dish with hot water halfway up the sides, creating a gentle, supportive embrace.
