First step: Open the can of evaporated milk and have a tablespoon..Ahhhh that is bliss!!!!
Well that not being an actual step in the recipe we can now move on!
First make the caramel. Put the sugar and water in a pan on high heat. Stir a little and let the sugar melt and start to brown.
Once it caramelizes pour the caramel into 4 individual moulds. This recipe is good enough for four flans. Swirl the caramel around a bit and then set aside.
Mix together milkmaid, milk, beaten egg, cornflour and mango puree. Beat well with a hand mixer.
I had some caramel left over and I added it to the batter. Now scoop the batter equally into the four moulds.
Preheat the oven at 170 degrees Celsius.
Take a large shallow pan and fill it halfway with water. Put it in the oven while it is being preheated.
Now place the four moulds in the pan with the warm water. This is a water bath. The water will provide moisture while baking ensuring that the flan does not become dry.
Bake for about 40 minutes.
