As I was surfing the net the other day. I was not really looking for a particle article or movies to entertained myself but I maybe I was hungry that time and craving for something delicious for dessert. I bump to this delicious leche flan recipes from yahoo. Forgive me if I forgot the the websites to where I got this flan recipe but you can find it in yahoo (when you open your mails or open yahoo page). The only thing that that prevent me from making this delicious Coffee-Cinnamon Mexican Flan is an oven. But I still keep the ingredients for future uses. heheh
½ cup La Lechera condensed milk
¼ cup sugar
1 tbsp water
1 ½ cups milk
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp instant coffee
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350. Place four 3/4 – cup ramekins or flan/custard cups in 13x9x2 inch baking pan.
In a heavy, small skillet, stir sugar and 1 tablespoon water over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves. Boil but do not stir, hold skillet’s handle and slowly swirl pan to incorporate sugar and water. About 8 minutes.
Immediately pour syrup into custard cups, divide equally.
In a small sauce pan, whisk milk, cinnamon and instant coffee. Bring to simmer. Remove from heat and let cook for 15 minutes.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs then gradually whisk in cinnamon-coffee milk, vanilla and La Lechera. Divide milk mixture among ramekins.
Pour hot water into baking pan, half way up the sides of cups (bain marie). Bake flans for 45 minutes or until sides of flans are set but centers are wobbly. Remove baking pan from oven and let the flans cool in the baking pan with water. Remove from water and refrigerate overnight.
Run a small knife around flans to loosen. To unmold, place a plate atop ramekin, hold plate firmly and invert. Shake gently and allow flan to settle onto plate.
