    List of Ingredients

    Flan, Canary-Style (Quesillo)


    Prepare flan one day in advance

    3 eggs
    1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
    2 cups milk
    1/3 cup ground blanched almonds
    Hot water
    Caramelized Sugar

    1/2 cup sugar


    Flan, Canary-Style (Quesillo)

    Before preparing flan, heat 1/2 cup sugar in a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar melts and is golden brown. Divide syrup among (5) 6-oz custard cups; tilt and rotate each cup to coat the bottom and some of the sides.


    Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare caramelized sugar, and coat the bottom and the bottom portions of the sides of the cups.

    Whisk eggs; add both types of milk and ground almonds.

    Pour egg mixture into prepared custard cups; place cups in a 9" x 13" baking pan. Pour very hot water around cups to within 1/2 inch from the top. Bake about 25 to 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of the custard comes out clean.

    Remove custards from the water bath; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Invert custard cups on a dessert plate to unmold. Caramel syrup will run down side of custard forming a sauce. Serve cold.

    Makes 5 servings
