Ingredients

    • 3 whole eggs, slightly beaten
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 can (14oz) non-fat sweetened condensed milk
    • 1 1/2 cups skim milk
    • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla
    • Nutmeg
  • Sauce:
    • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

Combine eggs, salt and sweetened condensed milk in a large bowl.  Slowly add the skim milk while stirring constantly.  Add the vanilla and blend well.

Preheat your oven to 350F

Pour custard into 5 ramekins and sprinkle the tops with nutmeg.

Place the custard cups in a hot water bath (a rectangular cake pan works well) making sure water comes 2/3 of the way up the sides of the cups. 

Bake flans for 30-35 minutes.  A knife inserted in the center of a flan should come out clean.

Refrigerate the flans for several hours to overnight.

Sauce
Place sugar and water in a small saucepan and stir until the sugar dissolves.  Add the cinnamon.  Heat until the sauce becomes clear and syrupy.  Serve over the flan.

Serve with Caramel Cinnamon Sauce
