Today we find ourselves with the recipe for a vanilla flan!
This is my second try and I am quite proud of the result! I had the patience this time to leave it cool overnight (I recommend it), and the texture and taste are great :-)
In addition to being a treat, it is also light, its texture is like that of the traditional cow's milk flan, with a subtle taste of vanilla.
The necessary ingredients are flour, margarine, water, sugar, vanilla extract and almond powder for the dough.
For the flan, you need vanilla soy milk, liquid soy cream, whole sugar, cornstarch, agar agar, vanilla pods, liquid vanilla extract, a sachet of vanilla sugar.
The necessary utensils are a saucepan, a springform pan (or removable pie pan), a kitchen scale, teaspoon, a salad bowl, baking paper for the bottom of the springform pan, a whisk.
This vanilla flan recipe is:
Easy to do

For the tart crust:
- Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, by hand or with a spatula, do not knead the dough too much.

- Put the mold back in the fridge while waiting.
- In a saucepan (off the heat for now), mix together the sugar, the 50g of cornstarch, the agar agar, the vanilla (cut the pods lengthwise and with a teaspoon scrape the inside to extract vanilla), liquid vanilla extract as well as 150ml of milk.
- Turn on the heat (medium fire), add the rest of the milk and the soy cream, mix vigorously with a whisk until the dough thickens.
- Add a tablespoon of cornstarch while continuing to stir.
- Let everything heat up, while stirring from time to time, the dough will thicken more and more.
- Turn off the heat and let cool for a few minutes, off the heat.
