FLAN, the French-classic by celebrity pastry Chef Christophe Michalak


INGREDIENTS (6 serving)
  • 500ml milk
  • 125ml whipping cream
  • 125g granulated sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 50g cornstarch
  • 1 vanilla pod
DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
In a saucepan, pour milk and cream. Grat the vanilla pod. Add the seeds and the pod to the liquid. Bring to a boil.
Meantime, combine sugar, yolks and cornstarch in a bowl. Whisk until smooth.
Pour the boiling milk on the eggs mixture and whisk vigorously. Pour back into the saucepan. Simmer for 30 secondes in keeping stirring. Remove from the stove. Pour the mixture into a dish covered with plastic film in contact to the cream.
When the cream is cold, remove the vanilla pod and whisk again.
Butter and flour a round mould. Pour the cream. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until the flan is lightly brown with black dots on top.
