I love making Dominican flan; it is one of my favorite desserts of all times. I grew up on it, my grandmother would make one every single week for the family. I would find it so yummy, and still up to this day I very do so. It is incredibly easy to make, first you need eight egg yolks, 2.5 cups evaporated milk, and 2.5 cups sweetened condensed milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla for caramel, 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup water. Once you have all of your ingredients together melt the sugar in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Add water and stir constantly until a thick, dark caramel syrup forms. Pour carefully into prepared baking pan and spread all over. On a separate container mix together egg yolks, sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk. Stir in vanilla or other flavoring (almond works well also). Pour carefully into baking pan, trying not to disturb the caramel layer. Bake in hot water bath in oven ( baño de agua maria) for one hour or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Once ready, loosen edges of flan, place a serving plate on top of mold (one which will retain the syrup) and invert. Chill thoroughly before serving. Most people like this dessert due to its rich caramel and sugary flavor and it will definitely be my favorite for many years to come.
