This week, renowned pastry chef and Cronut®-inventor Dominique Ansel joins me in the kitchen to show me how to make a custardy classic: crème caramel, also known as flan. I've always been intimidated by the dish, so being taught by one of the greatest bakers in the world should help me make something edible!

I just made this recipe, and...I have questions. So, the amounts in the recipe make a LOT of custard. Significantly more than 4 ramekins worth, and my ramekins are a bit bigger than the ones they used. Also, the recipe is for four ramekins, but when they actually put it in the bain marie it's only 3? Are we supposed to just bake the 4th one separately? I jammed all 4 ramekins into the pan and it worked ok, but I don't necessarily recommend that. I had to lengthen the cooking time, and because they were so close, the water bath couldn't do its thing in the same way. I'd recommend making this recipe for 6 instead of 4: you can make the same amount of custard, 1.5x the caramel, and then you can bake it in two batches of 3.

My mom makes a 9x13 of Flan. We do NOT turn it out we just fight over who gets to eat how much. And try to sneak the last bit for ourselves without the rest of the family knowing 😁.

I remember making the more decadent version, Leche Flan (from PH) on a 9x9 Brownie pan. It's so huge I ended up giving 3/4 to my neighbors. 😅 It's basically the same, except for this I used 12 pure egg yolks, and a mixture of Evaporated milk and condensed milk.

Let it sit to soften, and use less caramel in the ramekin next time.

can you use any type of bowl?
DmD 5 dögum síðan
It needs to be heat-proof so it won't shatter, but besides that any dish should workto varying degrees. Round bowls don't work as well since all the caramel pools to the bottom in a peak.
