Last week I was craving for a flan but for the kind of flan that you can have at any restaurant in Buenos Aires.
I went through my argentinian cooking books but I must confess, I didn’t have the will to cook something with a crazy amount egg yolks.
So after a little research online, I got to this argentinian TV chef’s recipe. I pretty much follow the recipe but I made just 2 quick changes (no vanilla, different bake method and time).
Here’s what you’ll need for the adjusted recipe:
- 1 can of sweet condensed milk (you can get organic condensed milk at Trader Joe’s)
- 2 1/2 cans* of warm water (*use the can from the sweet condensed milk)
- 4 organic large eggs
- 2/3 cup organic sugar
In a bowl, mix the sweet condensed milk with the warm water. Slighlty beat the eggs in another bowl and then add it to the condensed milk and water mixture.
Prepare a caramel on a deep pie pan and let it cool.
Once the caramel is cool, add the mix to the caramel pan.
Place the filled pan into a larger one and add 1 inch of hot water to the outer pan and bake in a preheated oven at 365F for 50 minutes.
Cool one hour on wire rack, then chill in refrigerator 6 hours or overnight.
Serve chill and…
