Flan De Leche Condensada#BakingBloggers

Flan De Leche Condensada - Condensed Milk Flan is a dessert of Spain.   We had this dessert there and enjoyed it so much. Much more than me my hubby who has a sweet tooth and wants a dessert after every meal enjoyed this dessert. 
It's so quick and easy to create the exquisite dessert at home. This if baked perfectly, it will slice also perfectly. Do not over bake or else it will be hard, not soft and delicious.

500 Ml Whole Milk
220 Grams Condensed milk
5 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Heaped Vanilla Essence
For the Caramel 1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Water

For the Caramel
In a heavy bottom pan heat the sugar till it starts to caramelize till dark golden, Now take this off flame add the water and  cover with a lid so that is does not splutter.  As soon as you add the water the caramel will freeze. Place it back on low flame, take off the lid and let it melt again completely. 
As soon as it melts pour this hot liquid into the pyrex dish or which pan you are baking  it in, swirl it well to coat the base. I used two one big dish and another small one.  Let this cool completely.  As this is cooling let's make our  Flan De Leche Condensada
First pre heat the oven to  200ยบ C .  Fill a baking oven tray with hot water until it covers an inch of  the height of the mold. Place it in the oven to boil. 
In a large bowl, with a hand whisk, whisk  the eggs lightly then add the  whole milk, condensed milk and whisk  till mixed , without creating too much foam.  Pour this into the cooled caramel coating dish/pan and cover them with aluminum foil and put them in the oven on the tray with water for approximately 50-60 minutes. 
The time depends a little on the size of the mold  the smaller one took around 30 to 35 minutes whereas the big one took about an hour or so to bake.
After 50  to 55 minutes you can try a knife to see if they are fully set. If it comes out clean they will be ready, if not leave them a little more time. 
Let cool to room temperature.  Then cling wrap them and refrigerate overnight. 
The next day, wet a towel with hot water and cover the base of the tin or dish and carefully un mold  it on a serving plate. 
Enjoy this yummy Flan De Leche Condensada.
