Classic Flan Recipe

Flan was originally an Italian dish, well Roman. The name flan comes from the French word flaon, which comes from the Latin flado – flat cake. The Romans made flan with honey, the Spanish made it more custardy and sweetened it with sugar – which is the traditional flan recipe we think of today with a caramelized sauce. The classic flan recipe has been updated with “modern” conveniences – such as sweetened condensed milk.

Here is an interesting story about how flan started out as a spicy dish in Roman times, became a sweet dish too, and then eventually evolved into the classic dessert dish that we Americans think of as flan, over the centuries. This classic custard recipe is slightly updated to make it easier to cook.

Classic Flan Recipe Notes:

• The flan can be made up to 2 days in advance.

• Instead of single serve ramekins and custard cups, you can make it in a 9-inch cake pan or even a 10 cup Bundt pan.

Homemade Chocolate Eclairs Recipe

Homemade Chocolate Eclairs Recipe

I just love chocolate éclairs! These are about 4″ long, and not quite as thick as you think when you consider the size you purchase at a bakery. This recipe makes 50 éclairs, so enough for two per person if you are so inclined.

These homemade chocolate eclairs are an outstanding dessert perfect for any occasion.


Notes

• Though the recipe uses a stand mixer, hand-held electric beaters work well too. Make sure not to over beat. A wooden spoon also works great. The wooden spoon requires more effort, but you will not overbeat the batter.

• The batter should be thick enough to pipe. If it is too liquid-y, keep adding a tablespoon of flour and mixing it well, until it is of a pipe-able consistency.

• Used to pipe the batter in the photos shows was a French tip nozzle (Wilton’s 4B). But a large open star tip (Wilton’s 1M) or a round shaped tip (Wilton’s 2A) are good choices too.

• The filling makes a LOT. There is more than enough filling to fill 50 éclair shells with plenty of leftovers. You could try a smaller (3.5 oz.) pack and 1½ cup of milk, but I do not know if it would fill all the 50+ shells (I have not tried it). It is better to have too much filling than too little in my opinion!

• Slicing the top off the éclair shells and then piping is pretty easy to do, but then coating them with the ganache is a nightmare. I suggest poking a hole on the two ends and two on top and then filling it with a round tip nozzle is more efficient. A bit time consuming but efficient. But again be careful while filling. Do not give too much pressure. The shell will explode and your hands and apron and work area will have the filling sprayed all over.

• ¾ of a cup of heavy cream is good for a thick coating consistency ganache. 1 cup yields thinner ganache. Any leftover chocolate makes a delicious “hot chocolate” when simmered with a mix of whole milk, half and half and maple syrup or honey or sugar.

• For my UK and Australian friends: confectioners sugar is icing sugar (powdered sugar, 10x).

  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 1 cup + 2 TBSP All-purpose Flour
  • 4 Large Eggs

• Simmer and reduce heat to low.

• Add in 1 cup all-purpose flour + 2 tablespoon flour and stir until combined. Continue stirring and mashing dough against the side of the saucepan.

• Transfer dough to a stand mixer and let cool for 5-10 minutes. An electric beater or a wooden spoon works too. This step is important - DO NOT add eggs into warm dough.

• Add 4 large eggs one egg at a time, mixing each egg in well before adding another one.

• Brush parchment lined baking pans with 1 tablespoon of water.

• Pipe dough into 4" long strips, with plenty of room between them to expand (they ready do not expand as much as they puff up. 1 inch apart is fine).

• Bake for 10 minutes in preheated 400°F oven. Reduce heat to 350°F, and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

• Transfer baked éclair shells to a wire cooling rack and let cool completely.

To make the éclair filling:

• Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer), whip 1 cup heavy cream in a small bowl until soft peaks form.

• Add ¼ cup confectioners sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the whipped heavy cream and beat again until combined.

• Fold the whipped cream mixture into the vanilla pudding mixture.

• Poke holes on the two ends and two on top of the éclair shells with a skewer.

• Using a small round tip nozzle fill the holes in the éclair shells with the filling. Use gentle pressure to fill or else the éclair shell might explode.

For the chocolate ganache:

• Bring ¾ cup heavy cream cream to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

• Add 8 ounces of finely chopped semi-sweet chocolate to a medium bowl, and pour in cream.
