Caramel Flan

Updated: Dec 15, 2022


  • 1 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened

  • 5 large eggs, room temperature

  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1. In a heavy saucepan, cook sugar and water over medium-low heat until melted and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Keep the lid on, to prevent sugar from going up the sides of the pan; add additional water if necessary. Check the pan and shake every now and then once boiling. 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 mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until thoroughly combined. Add remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour over caramelized sugar.

  • 3. Place the dish into 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 the larger pan to a wire rack; cool for 1 hour. Refrigerate overnight.

  • 5. To unmold, run a knife around the edges and invert onto a large rimmed serving platter. Cut into wedges and spoon some sauce over each serving.
