Caramel creme

Submitted by: GKOSTOVA04

Introduction

This is the better version of flan, much lighter and tastier! This is the better version of flan, much lighter and tastier!
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1 liter non-fat Milk (4 1/4 cups)
    1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
    6 Eggs
    1 pkg Vanilla sugar (or 1 tbsp vanilla extract)

    1/2 cup Granulated Sugar to caramelize
    1 tbsp lemon or lime juice

Tips

* I usually add water and a tbsp of lemon juice to the sugar. This way you make a syrup, so that he sugar doesn't burn and doesn't get too hard or too hot. Be careful when pouring the caramel into the tray/cups as it is really hot -- I suggest using metal or Pyrex tray/cups.
I already cut the sugar in the milk mixture in half, but you may replace some of it with a non-calorie sweetener in order to save some calories!


Directions

1) Beat the eggs and 1/2 cup of the sugar well;
2) Add them to the milk and mix well;
3) Add the vanilla;
4) Caramelize 1/2 cup of sugar* and pour it into a large tray or into individual small cups (6 or 12);
5) Pour the milk/egg mixture over the caramel;
6) Microwave until cooked, making sure the mix doesn't boil, so it keeps a smooth texture (originally, caramel creme is cooked in the oven in a water bath, but the microwave option is faster and easier).


Serving Size: Makes 12 individual servings
