a weekly gallery of food photography is hosted by SpiCes. The Iron Chef inspired theme for this week is Strawberries.
If you like flan and strawberries, here is an easy and delicious recipe.
1 cup sugar for caramel
1 pint strawberries, hulled and washed
½ cup sugar, more or less to taste
1 can sweetened condensed milk
fanned strawberries for garnish, optional
- Caramelize the 1 cup sugar and pour into the bottom of molds or ramekins. Set aside.
- Preheat oven to 325°F.
- Place the strawberries, sugar, eggs, and condensed milk in a blender and blend until strawberries are minced and all ingredients are mixed thoroughly. Pour the strawberry mixture into the prepared ramekins. Cover each ramekin with aluminum foil. Bake in a bain marie for 1 hour. Refrigerate overnight before unmolding.
- Garnish flans with fanned whole strawberries if preferred.
