Flan - Instructions
To make the topping:
In a 2-quart saucepan, heat sugar, corn syrup and 1/3 cup water together over medium heat. Bring to a
simmer and cook, without stirring, but swirl gently to evenly brown. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until
the syrup turns deep golden in color. Remove pan from heat and pour syrup immediately into an 8-inch
round cake pan. Swirl to coat bottom of the pan evenly. Allow syrup to cool and harden.
To make the custard:
In a medium saucepan, heat the milk and cream together over medium heat until steam appears and an
instant-read thermometer reads 160 degrees when placed in the milk. Remove from heat.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a kettle, bring 2 quarts of water to a boil.
Place the eggs, sugar, vanilla and salt in a blender. Blend on medium speed for 1 minute. With the
blender running on low, remove the cap from the blender top and slowly pour the milk mixture into the
blender. Blend for 1 minute. Pour the egg and milk mixture into the cake pan over the hardened syrup.
