Caramel Flan Brasileiro

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can milk
1 egg
Dash of vanilla extract
Several heaping tablespoon granulated sugar

Pour sweetened condensed milk into a blender. Fill the empty can with milk and add that to the blender. Add egg and vanilla extract. Blend until well mixed.

Meanwhile, cook sugar in a pan, rotating the pan occasionally to avoid burning the sugar. When the sugar is a golden caramel color, pour it into a metal ring mold. Pour in the mixture from the blender, and bake at about 300 to 350 degrees F with the ring mold pan in a larger pan of water so that the water comes up about halfway on the outside of the ring mold. Bake until the top of the flan starts to turn golden and a knife inserted into the flan comes out clean…a little over an hour.
