This is the English version of Flan de Leche Con Mango y Fresas, a dessert from Day 4 of the Meals Matter Family Meal Plan for Latinos by Monica Montes

Ingredients:

Flan Ingredients
2 Eggs
2 Egg Yolk only
1 cup 2% Milk
1 cup Half and Half (non fat)
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
3/8 cups Granulated Sugar


Caramel Mixture
½ cup Sugar
1/4 cup Water

Top of Flan once cooled
2 Mangoes sliced in long pieces
8 Strawberries (halve)
Put strawberries designs with the half on top

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 cup of water and 1/3 cup of sugar 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.
