Cuban Flan De Calabasa
|Raw sugar||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs) (Natural One)|
|Water||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Sweetened skimmed condensed milk||14 Ounce (1 Can)|
|Fat free evaporated milk||12 Ounce (1 Can)|
|Skim milk||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Vanilla extract||2 Tablespoon|
|Pumpkin puree||14 Ounce|
Preheat oven 350 degrees
In a small sauce pan heat the sugar and the water over medium-high heat, without stirring until sugar starts to melt. Reduce the heat to medium and swirl the sauce pan to cover the bottom evenly. Continue to heat the sugar until it caramelizes (it will turn a dark golden brown).
Remove from heat and immediately divide the caramelized sugar among 8 ramekins, rotating each to coat the bottom and the sides. Be careful not to touch the hot caramel. Let the caramel cool and harden.
In a large bowl combine the condensed milk, evaporated milk, skim milk, egg whites, eggs, vanilla extract, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin puree and pinch of salt. Spoon into the ramekins. Set the filled ramekins in a deep baking dish. Pour hot water around them so that the water rises two two-thirds up the sides of the ramekins.
Bake for 45 minutes or until the custard is set, (the centers of the Flan will be firm to the touch). Transfer to a rack and allow to cool. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
To unmold, run a sharp knife very carefully around the edge of each ramekin. Place a dessert plate on top of each ramekin, flip it over and tap gently until the flan is loose. Spoon any caramel left in the ramekin around the custard.
