Number of Servings: 8


    1/4 cup sugar
    1 cup eggs beaters or ( 4 eggs optional)
    1 cup fat-free milk
    1 cup evaporated fat-free milk or fat-free milk
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    Dash salt
    Edible flowers, such as dianthus, pansies, or violets (optional)


1. To caramelize sugar, in a small heavy skillet cook 1/4 cup sugar over medium-high heat until sugar begins to melt, shaking skillet occasionally to heat sugar evenly. Do not stir. Reduce heat to low and cook about 5 minutes more or until all of the sugar is melted and golden.

2. Quickly pour caramelized sugar into an 8x1-1/2-inch round baking pan, tilting pan to coat bottom (use a pot holder if pan becomes too hot).

3. In a mixing bowl beat eggs. Stir in skim milk, evaporated skim milk, 1/4 cup sugar, the vanilla, and salt. Pour into sugar-coated pan.

4. Set the round pan in a large baking pan set on an oven rack. Pour hot water into the large baking pan around the round pan to a depth of 1 inch.

5. Bake, uncovered, in a 325 degree F oven about 30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center of the custard comes out clean. Carefully remove from pan of water. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Cover flan and refrigerate 4 to 8 hours or until thoroughly chilled.

6. Loosen flan from side of pan. Carefully invert onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges. If desired, garnish with edible flowers. Makes 8 servings.

Make-Ahead Tip: Up to 24 hours ahead prepare flan, cover, and refrigerate.

    This is delicious! Couldn't even tell it was so low fat! Wow! I love custard desserts (flan, creme brulee, etc.) and was so super excited to find this recipe. I cut the recipe in half, and used 4 individual ramekins. Lovely! - 9/12/11
