Neapolitan Flan recipes

 Flan Napolitano is distinguished for its exceptional spongy texture that makes it melt in the mouth and invites you to eat more of it. It is one of the easy and quick recipes that suit all family members.

As for its nutritional properties, flan is a mixture of milk and eggs. In this recipe, we decided to use skimmed milk to reduce the calories.

It should be noted here that although skimmed milk is rich in calcium and iodine and contains the same levels of lactose and sugar as whole milk, it loses vitamin A and vitamin D during the fat removal process. Therefore, if these vitamins are important to you in so-and-so, use whole milk.

On the other hand, eggs are traditionally nutritious foods. It contains high quality protein and monounsaturated fatty acids. In addition, it is rich in vitamin A, vitamin B group (B2, B3, B12), folate, iodine and selenium.

In this recipe, we decided to use ricotta cheese instead of condensed milk, and stevia instead of refined sugar, in order to lower the calorie content and make the dessert diabetic-friendly.

Ingredients (serves 10 people)

  • 2 and a half cups of skimmed milk
  • 1 and a quarter cups of ricotta
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of stevia powder
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

  3. When you get a smooth mixture, add the vanilla and blend again. Set the mixture aside.
  4. To prepare the caramel. Put a saucepan on low heat and add sucralose to it. Heart until it turns golden. Turn off the heat, then add the water and lemon. Non-stop heart.
  5. Spread a little oil on the flan dish. Pour the caramel, then the Neapolitano mixture, into the dish.
