W.O.W. — FOOD!

Cooking with Mom Kiteley




It started with great food, great people and a greater God, and 25 years later it continues!

At our first meeting, all the desserts and food were homemade and donated by W.O.W. women. These skilled cooks under the direction of our head chef Mom Kiteley served for over a decade.

Since then W.O.W. has grown exponentially and catering help was needed to keep our W.O.W. women happy. We proudly declare we are foodies and we enjoy sharing recipes and eating together.

Some recipes shared here are from Mom Kiteley’s personal favourites and individuals known for their cooking hands.

Check out our shared recipes below and feel free to share your must-try recipes.

Cuban Flan Double Batch

Recipe by Pastor Nancy Clarke

3/4 Cup of sugar
1 1/2 Tsp of vanilla
5 Tbsp water
1/2 Tsp of cinnamon
10 Eggs
2 Cans of sweetened condensed milk
1 Can of evaporated milk
1 9 x 13 Pyrex cake pan
1 8 x 8 Pyrex pan

Introducing Pastor Nancy Clarke homemade Cuban Flan Double Batch recipe!

Put 3/4 cup of sugar, 5 tbsp of water and 1 1/2 tsp of vanilla in a pan stirring
continuously until boiling and sugar has caramelized to amber in colour. Add the cinnamon.
Put aside and cool until room temperature Reservedly coats square Pyrex pan up to half
of the sides with caramelized sugar. Put remaining caramelized sugar aside.

Beat eggs until frothy. Slowly add 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk while mixing. Slowly
add 1 can of evaporated milk. Pour into a caramel-coated square Pyrex pan. Place square
pan into a Pyrex oblong pan and place in the oven. Pour water into Pyrex oblong pan to 3/4
full ensuring it is below square brownie Pyrex pan. Bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.




Insert knife checking texture. When a slight residue (not liquid) on the knife remains, remove it from heat. The key to a great Cuban Flan is removing it from the oven on time when it is smooth and soft, not rubbery in texture. Cool and pour remaining caramel mixture on top Refrigerate and serve. Cut in rows of 4 making 16 stout portions. The recipe may be cut in half with less baking time.

This recipe does not require flipping the flan but is served from the dish with caramel on the bottom and on the top. The Bain-marie may be adapted to other dish sizes in which an 8″x 8″ Pyrex pan fits.
