    Coffee Flan

    Coffee Flan gives the classic you love a twist thanks to Mexican instant coffee and fresh whipped cream with a hint of tequila.


    Ingredients
    For the Coffee Flan
    1
    cup
    sugar
    1
    14 ounce can La Lechera sweetened condensed milk
    1
    12 ounce can evaporated milk
    1
    cup
    whole milk
    6
    large eggs
    1
    teaspoon
    pure vanilla extract
    1
    tablespoon
    Mexican instant coffee, dissolved in 1 tbsp boiling water
    For the Whipped Cream
    1 1/2
    cups
    cold heavy cream
    1
    tablespoon
    powdered/confectioners sugar
    1/2
    teaspoon
    pure vanilla extract
    2
    tablespoons
    white or silver tequila
    Directions
    For the flan: In a heavy medium saucepan, cook the sugar over medium heat, stirring frequently, until melted and golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Quickly pour the caramelized sugar syrup into individual molds. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    Place all three milks, the eggs, vanilla, and coffee in a blender. Mix until completely blended and smooth. Place on the middle rack of the oven.
    Pour into the caramel-lined molds or ramekins. Set the molds into a larger baking dish or pan. Carefully pour boiling water (it is very important that the water already be very hot) into the larger holding pan up to at least half the height of the molds.
    Bake, uncovered, about 40 minutes, or until the center comes out moist but clean. Remove the individual molds from the water bath and let them cool completely. Refrigerate the molds, covered with plastic.
    To serve, run a thin knife around the edge of the pan between the custard and the pan. Invert the flans onto plates to unmold them. Carefully lift up the molds to allow the syrup to run over the flan.
    For the whipped cream: Whip the cold cream in the bowl of an electric mixer. When it starts to hold peaks, add the confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and tequila. Continue to whip until it forms stiff peaks. Serve flan with a generous dollop of whipped cream; serve cold.
