- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 6 large eggs
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup brown sugar (for caramel)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
- In a saucepan, melt brown sugar over medium heat until it turns into a golden caramel. Pour this into the bottom of your flan mold.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract until well combined.
- Pour the mixture over the caramel in the flan mold.
- Place the mold in a larger baking dish and fill the dish with hot water until it reaches halfway up the sides of the flan mold.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the flan is set but still slightly jiggly in the center.
- Remove from the oven, let it cool, and then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
- When ready to serve, run a knife around the edge of the flan, place a serving plate on top, and invert to release the flan with its caramel layer on top.
