    Vanilla Flan




    I like flan but I've come to find out that not everyone does. I think it's because those folks have not tried this recipe for vanilla flan which creates a lovely smooth textured "pudding", with that subtle hint of vanilla. And guess what? It's even low in fat!

    Ingredients:
    1/4 cup water
    1/2 cup sugar
    3 large eggs
    a 14-ounce can nonfat sweetened condensed milk
    1 1/2 cups skim milk
    1 tablespoon vanilla


    Prep:

    Preheat oven to 325°F.
    In a small heavy saucepan bring water and sugar to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Boil syrup, without stirring, until golden caramel. Pour caramel into a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish, tilting dish to coat bottom and some of side with caramel.
    In a large bowl whisk together eggs, condensed milk, skim milk, and vanilla until smooth. Pour mixture through a fine sieve into soufflé dish. Put dish in a baking pan and add enough hot water to pan to reach halfway up side of dish. Bake flan in middle of oven 1 1/4 hours, or until just set but still trembles slightly. (Flan will set as it cools.) Remove flan from pan and cool in dish on a rack. Chill flan, covered, until cold, at least 4 hours and up to 1 day.
