Ingredients to make a homemade nougat flan

In our nougat flan recipe we will need:

  • 500gr of liquid nougat. (you can also use the original Jijona nougat always crushed with a knife or nougat cream).
  • 500ml of whole milk.
  • 5 eggs L
  • 5 tablespoons sugar for the flan mixture.
  • 5 tablespoons of sugar to make the caramel (optional)

The caramel is optional in our artisan nougat recipe. To decorate this Jijona nougat flan recipe we recommend dicing half a slice of Jijona nougat into small cubes.

How to make a Jijona nougat flan

To make nougat flan at home this recipe is very easy to make.

  1. Preheat the oven to 175º C.
  2. In a bowl, mix the nougat paste with the whole milk and beat until well blended.
  3. In another bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar until a white mixture is formed. Once the mixture is ready, mix it with the milk and the nougat and set aside.
  4. (optional for the nougat flan) Make the caramel in a non-stick pan or saucepan and heat the 5 tablespoons of sugar in a small saucepan. We recommend that, when it begins to darken, lower the heat and stir until it turns golden brown. Be careful because it burns a lot. Finally, pour the caramel into the molds. You can also buy ready-made caramel.
  5. Fill our molds with the reserved nougat custard cream .

Cooking: We are going to cook the nougat flan in the traditional way in a Bain Marie. We recommend not to open the oven constantly and to wait the set times.

  1. We place our molds with the soft nougat flan filling in a large pan or dish with about 3 fingers of water and bake them for 30/35 minutes. A trick to know if they are ready is that when you insert the tip of a knife or toothpick it comes out clean.
  2. Once baked, let the flans cool at room temperature and then in the refrigerator until ready to eat.

If instead of using individual molds we use a large dish or flan pan, we recommend leaving it in the oven for longer. Depending on its shape it will take between (1 hour and 30 minutes and 2 hours more approximately).
