I’m going to make macarons this week to bring to my mum so I’m keeping the whites in the fridge for 3 days before making them. So what do you do with the yolks now? well some simple flans with caramel. Nothing complicated or fancy but just as yummy and quick

What do you need?

  • 5 yolks
  • 100g of sugar + 100g for the caramel
  • 40cl of full fat milk
  • 10cl of cream
  • 10cl of water for the caramel
  • Vanilla sugar
  • Vanilla extract

Start by heating up the milk & cream together in a pan. Add the vanilla extract or better if you have real vanilla seeds. While it heats up slowly, mix the yolks with 100g of sugar. Mix the hot milk in the sugar & yolk preparation, add vanilla sugar.

Pre heat your oven at 180° and meanwhile make a caramel with the 100g of sugar, a bit of water and some drops of lemon if you have. Once ready poor the preparation in your ramekin and poor some caramel inside. Be careful as it might make a reaction as your caramel will be very hot. You can also put it before.

Cook for 25mn at 180°. Once done, let it cool down and put in the fridge, serve cold.
