So I had a ton of extra eggs, and quite coincidentally I ran across a recipe for flan, which I really like. However, it’s been cooking for a good half-hour and it’s still 100% liquid AFAICT. I’ve never cooked flan before, can anyone rescue me?
Here’s what I did:
First of all, I didn’t have the 8-inch pan, so I cut the recipe in half and am cooking in an 8-oz ramekin sort of thing.
I did the caramel part a-ok.
Then I mixed 1/8 cup sugar, 2 eggs, a 1/2 c of milk, a dash of salt, and 1/2 tsp vanilla. I poured this on top of the caramel and put it in a casserole dish with about an inch of water (or slightly less). Popped it in the oven at 325, and expected it to be done between 20-30 minutes.
I am so not a chef, but I decided to try this recipe. Only a few ingredients, baking; how hard could it be, I thought? :smack:
Please, if any chefs are online, can you save this disaster?
