This dessert is made by using 3 types of milk,and a quick easy and yummy dessert!


1 tin condensed milk

1/2 cup cream

2 cups milk

7 eggs

vanilla essence 1 tsp.

pinch of nutmeg

For the caramel:

1/2 cup sugar

2 -3 tblsp.water

a drop of lime juice(this is used to prevent the caramelised sugar from hardening)

Blend all the ingredients for the flan,in a mixer.Pour over the set caramel,and bake  in a moderate oven ( 180 degrees) for 60 minutes.It will be jiggly(insert a fork ,if it comes out clean its done) .Cool and  keep in the fridge for a minimum of 6 hours,or maximum 12 hours.turn over carefully.Slice and serve.

Note:The flan tin(loaf tin looks pleasing),should be placed in a bigger pan with hot water,and placed in the oven

To make Caramel:Heat all ingredients on a slow flame patiently.when you see a nice golden brown syrup add the lime.(take care not to burn the sugar).Pour the caramel in the pan you chose to bake,and make sure the syrup spreads at the bottom of the pan.
