This is the richest, creamiest, and most amazing flan you'll ever taste! No, really. Our flan is the kind that dreams are made of, which is why we call it our Dreamy Flan. This custardy dessert is a Latin favorite and a real must-try!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 (14-ounce) can condensed milk
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. In a small skillet over medium heat, cook 3/4 cup sugar until completely melted and caramelized, stirring occasionally. Immediately pour into a 9-inch cake pan. (Be careful, caramelized sugar will be hot!)
  3. In a blender, combine condensed milk, evaporated milk, eggs, vanilla, and remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Blend 15 seconds or until thoroughly combined. Pour over caramelized sugar in pan.
  4. Place flan pan in a large roasting pan. Pour just enough hot water into roasting pan to go halfway up sides of flan pan (being careful not to get water into custard). Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Carefully remove from hot water bath and allow to cool 1 hour. Cover and chill overnight or at least 4 hours. 
  5. Just before serving, run a knife around inside edge of pan to loosen flan from pan. Invert flan onto a 12-inch rimmed serving plate.

Why was sugar included in the video, but not in the online recipe?

Hi there! Sugar (divided) is listed as the first ingredient for this recipe. All the ingredients can be found under "What You'll Need." I hope that helps! :)

What is the sauce that you pour over the flan before serving.

I think it was the sauce from the pan.

Good afternoon! The sauce being poured over the flan is the sugar caramelized from baking the flan itself. I hope that clarifies things. Happy Friday! :)

I would add 4 oz. of softened cream cheese to the milk mixture. I got my recioe from a West Indian when we lived in P Rico and I always doubled the recipe with 8 oz cream cheese. It realll is a winner with the cheese. I also add cinnamon and nutmeg to mine.

This is a rich and creamy dessert. Bake it a little more, or less, depending on how creamy you like it. Have been making flan for 40 years, but never add sugar to the milk mixture. I do, however, add extracts of my choice, usually about one small teaspoon, to change the flavor. Try coconut, orange, strawberry, rum, nut, coffee, whatever appeals to you.

Herb Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce

Instead of cooking ham or prime rib for Easter, why not try something new this year? Our Herb-Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce may look and sound fancy, but it's really easy to do. It's basically a rack of lamb that's coated with herbs and spices before it's roasted to perfection. Just before serving, it's finished off with a mint-wine reduction. The end result is an Easter-worthy main dish that'll impress everyone at the table.
