Where should I buy Flan in Queens?
Hi, I'm looking to buy an entire flan for a friend's birthday. I'm in Flushing, Queens...any ideas? I'm thinking I would need to go to Corona, Elmhurst or JH...? Much thanks!
I had great flan at brasillia ville grill in astoria.
nueva bakery in JH is an obvious choice, but it was just average to me.
Devi, I love flan too. It's really simple to make and much better than the stuff you can buy. Honestly. Recipe below is great.
Servings: Makes 8 servings
Serving Size: not available
Nutrition: not available
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 55 to 60 minutes
Total Time: 70 minutes
3/4 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups water
1 (14-ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® Sweetened Condensed Milk (NOT evaporated milk)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350°F. In heavy skillet, over medium-low heat, cook sugar, stirring constantly, until melted and caramel-colored. Pour into 9-inch round dish or baking pan, tilting to coat bottom completely.
In a medium bowl, beat eggs; stir in water, EAGLE BRAND®, vanilla and salt. Pour over caramelized sugar; set pan in larger pan. Fill larger pan with 1 inch of hot water.
Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until center is just set (mixture will jiggle). Move dish from larger pan to a wire rack; cool for 1 hour. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
To unmold, run a knife around edge and invert onto a large rimmed serving platter.
I know this is an old post, but I prefer the Filipino style of flan (leche flan) over the Latin American version because it's richer. I've generally gotten it at Krystal's in Woodside.
