I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I know my family and I enjoyed the most wonderful buffet ever! Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing & stuffing balls (Family Tradition), corn, mixed veggies, egg noodles with butter (yet another family tradition)…. and then the desserts; apple pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, peanut butter bars and the new family tradition Flan. For those of you who have never heard of ‘Flan’ or have heard of it but are not sure what it is, here’s Webster’s definition. Flan: custard baked with a caramel glaze.
Now there are quite a few recipes out there that teach you how to make flan from scratch. Let me tell you… it takes FOREVER to make. I have found a recipe that takes hardly no effort and is quick and simple. GOYA brand Flan mix is the way to go for me…. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
2 boxes of GOYA Flan mix
4 cups of milk
In a saucepan mix both packets of the GOYA mix and 4 cups of milk. (Do not follow the recipe on the box as it will not turn out good) While the mixture is boiling, take the caramel packets that came in the box and cover the bottom of your mold of choice with the caramel. Once the mixture has come to a boil, pour it into the mold with the caramel sauce. Let this cool for about 10 minutes and then put it in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours. (For best results let it sit in the fridge overnight.)
