BRANDY FLAN Flan is the name of a baked custard, as well as of a French pastry tart. The former is considered to be a staple dessert in Spanish-speaking countries. This recipe is enhanced by the addition of brandy. Caramel: ½ cup sugar 3 tbsp water Heat the sugar and water over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Pour approximately 2 Tbsp into each of 6 custard cups. Flan: 2 cups milk 1 tsp vanilla 1 tbsp brandy ½ cup sugar 3 whole eggs 2 egg yolks ¼ tsp nutmeg 1/8 tsp salt Mix the milk, vanilla, and brandy together and warm. In a small bowl, mix the sugar, eggs, egg yolks, nutmeg, and salt. When the milk mixture is warm, slowly and carefully add it to the egg mixture. Strain to remove any solid egg particles that may have formed. Pour into 6 caramel-lined custard cups, dividing mixture evenly. Place the cups in a baking pan and fill the pan with hot water two-thirds of the way up the sides of the custard cups. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for about 1 hour or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
