Flan, Custard, Creme Brulee…. by any name it is a light and delicious end to any meal. Or a snack. Or even for breakfast. It is eggs, after all.
This recipe uses goat’s milk which gives it a rich and creamy texture.
Goat’s Milk Flan
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups goat’s milk
3 egg yolks
1/2 tsp vanilla
Heat 3/4 cup sugar in a small pan until it is melted and slightly brown. Pour into a baking dish. It will harden.
Whisk the eggs and vanilla in a bowl until frothy.
Heat 1/2 cup sugar and goat’s milk in a sauce pan until it boils. Temper the eggs with a little of the milk mixture stirring constantly. Pour the egg mixture into the saucepan stirring constantly so the eggs don’t harden. Turn the heat off and pour the custard into the baking dish.
Place the baking dish into a larger dish with hot water. This goes into a 350 degree F oven for 35-45 minutes.
It will come out firm. Cool completely before turning out onto a serving dish. Serve chilled.
