(Spanish Flan – Caramel Egg Custard ) & Sagrada Familia

09 Jun

Flan is one of the popular Spanish Dessert . It is spread over entire europe , Unites States and other countries. I have googled to know the ingredients and used my own way and measurement to prepare this. It came out well and the taste was also excellent.

Ingredients :

  1. Egg – 4
  2. Milk – 200ml , warm
  3. Condensed milk – 100 ml
  4. Sugar – 1 cup
  5. Sugar – 3 Tbs
  6. Vanilla Essence  a little
  7. Cherries for decorating.







1. Add the sugar in a bowl and slightly wet it with few sprinkles of water. Now allow it to caramalise in a medium heat. It takes approx 10 – 15  min.

2. Once the sugar is medium brown in color carefully pour it to the Oven safe bowl and do a quick swirl to make a coat of caramel in the bowl.

3. Beat the eggs slowly without making too much of air into it. Add the warm milk and condensed milk  and vanilla essence and give a quick mix.  Add the 3 Tbs sugar crystals which gives a small air holes in the final product.  Looks like emmentaler cheese.

4. cover this bowl with a silver foil and let in a sit in a another dish filled with hot water.

5. Preheat the oven and cook for 30 min at 180 C.  Heating time and temp depends upon the thickness of the custard. I used a flat bowl, so it took less time and temperature. Insert a knife to check whether the custard is cooked properly so the knife comes out clean.

6. When it is done allow it to cool for couple of hours and rest in the fridge for 2 more hours and it is ready to serve. ( I didn’t refrigerate it, after it was done the custard got separated automatically and so i flipped the custard in a serving plate along with the caramel.)

Over to Spain Attractions…

Sagrada Familia is a famous church in Barcelona, one of the Gaudi’s most popular work. Gaudi is a architect from spain whose works are just amazing and has a vast difference compared to other architectures. He has done other  projects as well which are popular too. The construction of this church started during 1882 and it is expected to finish by 2026, according to wikipedia. One of the longest construction work ever done before. This massive structure is one of the top tourist attraction. So never miss it when you are in Barcelona.

Now they are focusing on roofing and construction of 6 towers.
