Flan is one of those desserts that is amazing year round, but we especially like making it over the holidays when friends and family come over. Usually you have to bake the flan in a water bath, but carefully adding hot water to a roasting pan around the flan and then removing the hot flan from the hot water is always difficult. With the Anova Precision Oven, there’s no water bath needed; just bake the flan with the steam setting!
This classic Spanish style flan uses staple pantry ingredients and cookware, and it is so easy to put together. The end result is a silky, creamy custard that is topped with a burnt sugar caramel. This recipe easily serves a crowd and can be made in advance so you’re always ready for holiday guests.
Notes: Once you invert the flan, you can loosely cover with plastic wrap and store overnight before serving. Any leftovers will hold in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 more days.
