Flan for tonight



Meet my little puppies, Romulo and Rhea. Romulo a 7 year old short hair Chihuahua. Rhea a 6 years old half short hair-half long hair Chihuahua. Both in honor to my hometown, haha! They are so spoiled, so intelligent, they are always making their way to get a treat. With the cold weather, they don’t like to go out, Rhea immediately starts crying and Romulo starts shaking. I love to watch them lay by the sun or by the fire-place while I’m cooking. So…Flan for tonight? This recipe y so, so easy and delicious. This time I’m adding coconut and pecans, this is optional but I bet it will come out even better!



Serves 8



3/4  Cup of Sugar

1       Can of Evaporated Milk

1       Can of Condensed Milk

4      Eggs

1      Teaspoon of Vanilla

1/4   Chopped pecans

1/4   unsweetened coconut


In a Medium sauce pan melt the sugar over low heat stirring constantly until it becomes a golden caramel





Pour the caramel into 8 individual ceramic baking dishes, you have to do it very quickly before it cools and hardness. You can also use one big ceramic or Pyrex baking dish.


Mix the remaining ingredients in a big bowl


Pour the mix into the little dishes


Sprinkle the pecans and coconuts over the mixture. Put the containers in a pan with 1/2 cup of water. Cover with foil and bake at 325ºF for 1 hour.



Let them cool for a little bit and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
