Caramel Flan

This is easy and delicious. This is one of my favorite desserts! I decided since it is New Year's Eve, I might as well enjoy this. I love the creamy texture, just perfect. Serves 10.

For the Flan:

12 egg yolks, beaten
1 can evaporated milk
1 can condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

And for the Caramel Glaze:

1/2 cup sugar

Mix together the egg yolks, evaporated milk, condensed milk and vanilla extract. Make sure to mix everything together well. Set aside.

In a small saucepan, set on medium-high heat and pour the sugar in. The sugar will melt down, stir it gently so there would be no lumps. Reduce heat to medium. Do not allow to boil, or the glaze will taste burnt.

Spray a loaf pan (or any mold you prefer) with nonstick spray and pour caramel glaze in. Pour the egg mixture over the glaze and cover the pan with aluminum foil. Set pan into a bigger pan half-filled with water and place into a preheated 375F oven. Bake for about 50 minutes. You will want it to be firm to the touch. Stick a fork into the flan, and if it comes out clean, it is done. Chill immediately, about 3 hours. Invert onto serving dish.

So yummy! About 7 points a serving. It is an AWESOME dessert!
