Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: about 1 hour
Refrigeration: 2 hours
1/2 cup Diced Fresh Pineapple (or canned)
1/2 cup Pitted Cherries
1/2 cup Peeled and Diced Kiwi
6 tbsp. Granulated Sugar
Pinch of Salt
Preheat oven to 425°F
1. Squeeze lemon and filter out seeds.
2. In a pot, add lemon juice, 3 tbsp. water, sugar, and fruits. Cook over a low heat for about 10 minutes. If the water dries up, add a little bit more. Remove from heat and let cool off.
3. In a bowl, whisk eggs with a pinch of salt. Add fruits (make sure that they've cooled off and won't cook your eggs!) and gently stir. Pour into flan dish (or pie dish) and bake in a bain-marie (double-boiler) for an hour or until the flan has taken (congealed).
4. Remove from oven and let cool off, then refrigerate for 2 hours or more.
Tip: If for some reason you can't bake in a bain-marie, just butter the flan/pie dish and bake normally.
As I said above, you can substitute with whatever fruits you wish... so let your creative juices flow and have fun creating your own delectable flan recipes!!!
Traditionally, flan recipes are served in one large flan dish (or pie dish). You can leave the flan in the dish, or you can flip over onto a serving platter.
If you'd like, you can also use individual ramekins.
