Ingredients:

2 Eggs
2 Egg yolk only
1 cup 2% Milk
1 cup Half and Half (non fat)
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons granulated Sugar

For Caramel
1/2 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Water

Top of Flan once cooled
2 Mango sliced in long pieces
8 Strawberries (halved)

Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. In a blender add all flan ingredients together and mix until smooth.

3. In a small pot on medium heat add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of water and cook until it becomes caramel. Once the caramel is ready and still hot pour it in the baking pan. Tilt the baking pan on all sides to coat the pan evenly with the caramel. Do this quickly before the caramel cools.

4. Pour the flan mixture in the pan with the caramel coating.

5. To cook the flan you will use a bain-marie or water bath. (Tip: Need another baking pan larger than the one used with the flan. The baking pan with the flan mixture will go inside the larger pan. Once you have put the 2 baking pans together, fill the larger one with water 1/2 way.

6. You will cook the flan for about 1 to 1-1/2 hours, until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Once the flan is ready run a knife around all the edges and give it a slight shake to move the caramel around. Put the flan on a cooling rack until completely cooled.

7. To take it out of the mold, put a plate on top of the baking pan and flip over. Design with mango slices and strawberries on top.
