Creamy Flan

Flan is a vanilla-infused custard with a sweet caramel top layer, but–like all custards–it easily embraces other flavors. Chocolate, coffee, orange, and coconut are all delicious variations.


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1

    In a heavy saucepan, cook and stir sugar over medium-low heat until melted and golden, about 15 minutes. Quickly pour into an ungreased 2-qt. round baking or souffle dish, tilting to coat the bottom; let stand for 10 minutes.

  • 2

    In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until thoroughly combined. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour over caramelized sugar.

  • 3

    Place the dish in a larger baking pan. Pour boiling water into larger pan to a depth of 1 in. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until center is just set (mixture will jiggle).

  • 4

    Remove dish from a larger pan to a wire rack; cool for 1 hour. Refrigerate overnight.

  • 5

    To unmold, run a knife around edges and invert onto a large rimmed serving platter. Cut into wedges or spoon onto dessert plates; spoon sauce over each serving. Yield: 8-10 servings.
