Description

Flan doesn’t need to be intimidating. The addition of cream cheese makes this extra rich, creamy and silky smooth. This may soon become your go-to flan recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 package (8 Oz. Size) Light Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 4  Large Eggs
  • 1 can (12 Oz. Size) Evaporated Milk
  • 1 can (14 Oz. Size) Condensed Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 325 ºF. Bring 1 quart of water to boil for a water bath.

Whisking constantly, bring sugar and 1/4 cup water to boil over medium-high heat in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan. When mixture starts to boil, turn heat to medium-low and stop whisking. Continue to simmer until mixture turns golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Pour mixture into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate set in a roasting pan large enough to accommodate it.

Meanwhile, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy in a medium bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping down sides, after each addition. Beat in both milks and vanilla until smooth.

Set roasting pan in oven; pour flan batter into pie plate and water into roasting pan. Bake until flan is jiggly, but set, about 1 hour. Remove from oven, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate until ready to serve. Run a small knife around pie plate perimeter to loosen flan. Invert onto a large lipped platter. Cut into wedges and serve.

I’ve never made flan before and since this recipe looked so easy, I decided to try it. It was delicious! Creamy, rich but not too sweet, divine. It’s almost like a combination between custard and cheesecake. I will certainly be making this again! Thanks for the recipe.
