IT'S FLANTASTIC! MY FAVORITE DESSERTS:


EXCLUSIVE FROM TWINAS LATINAS (CHERI & ANA) MAGAZINE!
  Assorted Flans



COFFEE FLAN                                   

Time: 1h and 30 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Price: Affordable

(Flan mold is needed)



INGREDIENTS
  
1/2 tablespoon Water 
2 cups Water
4 tablespoons of Sugar
6 Eggs, beaten 
1 can of sweetened Condensed Milk
2 tablespoons of Instant Coffee 
Whipped Cream.

DIRECTIONS:

Fill a large pan or casserole-baking dish (large enough to accommodate a Flan mold) with water and bring it to a boil on the stove top. 

Add four tablespoons of sugar into the flan mold, plus 1/2 tablespoon of water, and heat it until becoming a light brown caramel color (do not burn). Once the caramel is made, take it off the heat.  Carefully add the Flan mold in the middle of the pot or baking dish with the boiling water.

In a mixing bowl add 2 cups of water, the can of sweetened condensed milk, 6 beaten eggs, and 2 tablespoons of instant coffee. Beat well and pour into the Flan mold, over the caramel.

Put the mold back into the pan or baking dish, and cover only the Flan mold with a pot lid, not the entire pot. Leave it boiling but be careful that the water does not boil up and inside the mold.

Water should reach up to about an inch (two centimeters) below the top of the mold. Boil for 60 minutes (1 hour) then remove from heat, and allow to cool. Once cool, turn mold out onto a platter, and top with whipped cream
