Express flan
  1. Preheat oven to 400 ° F.
  2. To make the caramel, add the sugar and water to a medium heavy bottom pot and bring to a boil on medium high heat.
  3. Once the caramel color is dark gold (make sure it doesn't burn), divide the caramel onto 6 ramekins and set aside.
  4. Prepare your custard. Warm up your milk with the vanilla (if you are using a vanilla bean, split it in two and scrap the seeds onto the milk) to almost a boil (6 minutes in your microwave will do). Set aside.
  5. In a medium bowl, gently whisk your eggs and your sugar until smooth. Slowly add the warm milk to the eggs mixture. Divide the preparation into each ramekin. Bake in a hot water bath (Fill the baking dish halfway with very hot water but not boiling, being careful not to splash water into the ramekins) for about 30mns.
  6. After 30mns, let cool in your fridge for a minimum of 2 hours, plate and garnish with strawberries.
Recipe Notes

Do not overbake your flans or the eggs will curdle and your flan will be grainy.

Organization is key in the kitchen. If you have everything measured, prepped and sorted before hand, executing your recipe will be pure bliss.

A food scale is more precise and very useful to calculate calories in a recipe if you're watching your waistline.
