Ingredients for Strawberry Flan

The flavors in this strawberry flan recipe meld together in a harmonious symphony, offering a tantalizing taste experience:

  1. Fresh Strawberries: The star of the show, fresh strawberries bring a burst of vibrant sweetness and a subtle tartness. They infuse the custard with a natural, fruity essence, adding a delightful contrast to the creamy base.
  2. Caramel: The caramel layer provides a rich, deep sweetness that complements the strawberries perfectly. It adds a hint of bitterness and a delightful contrast to the creamy custard, creating a well-balanced sweetness.
  3. Eggs: The eggs enrich the custard, lending a velvety texture and a creamy, custardy flavor that binds all the ingredients together. They contribute to the classic flan taste, providing the base with its signature richness.
  4. Sweetened Condensed Milk: The sweetened condensed milk adds a creamy sweetness and a slightly caramelized flavor, enhancing the overall sweetness and creaminess of the flan.
  5. Evaporated Milk:
  6. The evaporated milk contributes to the creamy texture and richness of the custard. It offers a subtle caramelized note and a creamy, smooth taste that elevates the overall flavor profile.
  7. Vanilla Extract: Vanilla extract introduces a warm and comforting aroma, enhancing the custard with a gentle sweetness and a touch of floral and woody undertones. It harmonizes with the strawberries and caramel, rounding out the flavors.
  8. Granulated Sugar: Granulated sugar is a fundamental sweetener that not only sweetens the custard but also plays a crucial role in creating the caramel layer. It adds the necessary sweetness to balance the tartness of the strawberries.

In this strawberry flan recipe, the flavors come together in a delightful blend, showcasing the natural sweetness of strawberries against the rich creaminess of the custard and the sweet, caramel undertones.

Each bite is a delightful fusion of fruity, creamy, and slightly caramelized flavors that will leave your taste buds craving for more.

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Prepare the Caramel: Begin by making the caramel. In a saucepan, melt 1/2 cup of granulated sugar over medium heat until it turns a golden brown color. Stir constantly to prevent burning. Pour the caramel into a flan mold or ramekin, coating the bottom evenly. Let it cool and harden.
  2. Prepare the Custard Mixture: In a blender, combine the eggs, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth and well combined.
  3. Add Strawberries: Arrange the sliced strawberries over the caramel layer in the flan mold.
  4. Pour the Custard Mixture: Carefully pour the custard mixture over the strawberries and caramel in the flan mold.
  5. Bake: Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C). Place the flan mold in a baking pan and add water to the pan, creating a water bath around the mold. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until the flan is set. To check for doneness, insert a toothpick; it should come out clean.
  6. Chill: Allow the flan to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or preferably overnight to chill and set.
  7. Serve: Once chilled, run a knife around the edges of the mold, place a serving plate on top, and carefully invert the flan onto the plate. The caramel will drizzle over the flan, and the strawberries will be beautifully displayed.
