Chocolate-Cinnamon Flan

Yield 8 servings
Prep: 10 minutes; Cook: 1 hour. Health Managing Editor Jerry Gulley, who developed this recipe, suggests that you use an 8-inch round cake pan if you don't have a quiche dish. But note that the baking time will need to be adjusted to 1 hour and 50 minutes (the increased height of the flan requires extra time).

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 (14-ounce) can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons Dutch process cocoa
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 300°.

  2. Combine granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon water in a small, heavy saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat; cook 45 seconds, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil 3 minutes or until golden. Immediately pour mixture into a 9-inch quiche dish coated with cooking spray, tipping quickly until caramelized sugar coats bottom of dish.

  3. Combine 1% low-fat milk and remaining ingredients in blender; process until smooth. Pour milk mixture over syrup in dish. Place dish in a 13- x 9-inch baking pan; add hot water to pan to a depth of 1 inch. Bake at 300° for 55 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Remove dish from pan; cool completely on a wire rack. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
