Milk flan with caramel salted butter brickle

Is’ the favorite dessert of my companion, that's sardo, as sarda is this recipe: flan milk. Delicate, Lightweight, lemon scented. I couldn't but not enrich it with luscious toffee sauce salted caramel and a small handful of crispy hazelnut… If you like creamy desserts and puddings, take a look at our tiramisu, the Strawberry cream and soft cheese, the zuppa inglese and a little’ Sicula, at Risotto cake with cherries, the Lemon cream with orange jelly and to the ‘cuccìa‘ Palermo.

Ingredients for 6 people:

for the flan

  • 4 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 500 ml whole milk
  • grated zest of one lemon
  • 30 grams of chopped hazelnuts

for the salted caramel toffee

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 60 ml of liquid cream

Preheat the oven at 170 degrees. Beat the whole eggs with the sugar until they become foamy tripling their volume, I recommend you use an electric mixer: It will take about 10 minutes. Combine the milk (at room temperature) flush, stirring constantly and finally lemon zest.

Put the mixture into the moulds and cook in lightly moistened aluminum double boiler(placing the ramekins in a baking pan filled with water half way up about stencil) for about an hour. Remove from oven and let cool stencils.

For the sauce, put the two types of sugar in a nonstick pan and melt over low heat. When the sugar has melted, Add a pinch of salt (adjust the salt depending on how much you like tasty salsa, I like very tasty ...) and the cream slowly, stirring constantly with a metal spoon and mixing the sugar over low heat.

When the caramel is ready, put it in a bowl and let it cool down: will tend to thicken, While remaining fluid. Remove the flan from the bowl, you pass a knife all around the edges, the way down. Serve the flan guarnendolo with plenty of toffee and sprinkle with chopped hazelnuts. Bon appétit!

I looks great!! will try it! but one question, If it is cooked for 1 hour at 170° the Interior is so well cooked, It's not like the chocolate flan which has the soft heart. fair?

No, has the consistency of chocolate cakes, they are heavy and buttery. Longer has the consistency of a milk pudding, It is very light because it contains no flour or butter. Thanks for your visit!!!

EH, to tell me about it. I eat her sauce with a spoon…and more salt is '’ the more I like it. If you want to experience, try putting peanuts instead of hazelnuts…A fairy tale..

He thinks that my husband hates puddings…doesn't get a tube! :-) io lo divorerei invece questo tuo flan: two minutes is too much?

fratelli_ai_fornelli February 16, 2013 - 13:08

No, no, two minutes are plentyful…Unfortunately to be elegant you do too small!!!
