This lighter version of the traditional Mexican custard is decadently rich and easy to make. Keep portions small; a little goes a long way.

  1. In a small saucepan, melt sugar over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves into a dark, caramel-colored liquid. Remove from heat and quickly pour into a 4-cup metal ring mold. Using potholders, quickly turn mold to coat bottom and sides with the caramel (caution: mold will become very hot). Cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 325ยบ. In a blender, combine condensed milk, reduced-fat milk, eggs, egg substitute and flavorings. Cover and blend until very smooth. Pour mixture into mold; put mold in a larger pan filled with water to a depth of 1/2 inch. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven and remove mold from water. Cool, cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.
  3. Loosen edges of mold with a knife or spatula. Cover mold with an inverted serving platter and turn over. Remove mold. Caramel will fall as a liquid sauce over the custard.
