 Ingredients List

  • 1 pt Half & half
  • 4 Eggs (extra large)
  • 1/8 ts Salt
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1 ts Vanilla extract
  • 2 tb Water


14 oz Raspberries; fresh or frozen
1/2 c Confectioner's sugar
1 tb Lemon juice

FLAN:Preheat oven to 325 F. Heat half & half to boiling point. Beat eggs.
Add 1/2 cup sugar & salt, mix thoroughly. Don't aerate! Add hot half &
half. Stir in vanilla. Strain. Heat 1/2 cup sugar in heavy pan on low heat.
Stir constantly w/ wooden spoon until sugar is melted. Remove pan from
heat, add water very slowly & carefully (adding water quickly can be very
dangerous and may cause an explosive reaction). Return pan to low heat,
cook until mixture is golden brown. (If using candy thermometer 122R or
306.5F) Coat sides of 4 custard cups w/ butter,pour 1/4 of caramelized
sugar into bottom of cup. Pour custard mixture into custard cups. Place
cups in pan of hot,not boiling,water. Poach in oven about 30-35 min. To
test for doneness,insert tip of knife into custard near edge of cup. If
blade comes out clean, custard should be removed from the oven and water
bath. There is sufficient heat stored in custard and cup to complete
cooking process after removal from the oven. The custard will be firm in
the center by the time it has cooled. Invert the custard cup onto a platter
or individual dessert dishes. The liquid caramel will flow down sides of
custard. If custard is thoroughly chilled,it may be necessary to dip cups
1/2 in. into hot water(dip very quickly) so that syrup will be released.
Decorate as desired, served w/ Sauce Melba. SAUCE MELBA: Puree raspberries.
Transfer to saucepan & add sugar. Bring quickly to boil. Cool & add lemon
juice. Yield: 1 pt. For a winter version of the Sauce Melba, see recipe
titled Sauce Melba (winter version).
