Creamy Flan Recipe

This post brought to you by Eagle Brand // I LOVE FLAN!  I don't know if I can emphasize that enough. My Mom has made flan for years and it has become a bit of a holiday tradition. All be it, a rather non-traditional holiday tradition. Most people don't correlate Flan, a creamy custard like dessert with strong Latin roots with Christmas, but they should!  It's so easy to make and the creamy custard with the caramelized sugar is just lovely. 

Eagle Brand Creamy Flan

Ingredients for Flan Recipe

1 cup sugar

1 14 oz. can of Eagle Brand™ Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 12 oz. can of Carnation® Evaporated Milk

6 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

pinch of salt

Eagle Brand Flan

Directions for Flan

Caramelize sugar by putting it into a saucepan and melting the sugar until it becomes caramel. Try to avoid stirring the sugar, just swirl the pan. If you stir the sugar it could cause sugar crystals to form in your caramel. When the sugar has fully caramelized, pour into the bottom of your oven safe ramekins or a 8×8 baking dish.

Set aside and let cool while you are mixing the custard. 

In your mixing bowl, combine the Eagle Brand™ Milk, Carnation® Evaporated Milk, eggs, vanilla and salt and whisk together well.

Pour custard into your dish or ramekins right on top of the caramel.

Next, you will need to heat some water. Place your ramekins or baking dish into a larger baking dish. Pour the hot water into the dish up to the middle of the custard dishes.

Eagle Brand Flan-bake is a baking dish filled half way with hot water

This is called a Bain Maria or hot water bath. 

Place in a 300˚ oven for one hour or until the custard has set. Remove from oven and let cool for 10-20 minutes. If you are using ramekins, you can then invert the flan out on a plate at this point. Or, you can let it chill and serve later.

    I am always making Flan for my family and coworkers. I have two suggestions. I only use two eggs instead of six, for those of us who do not like the taste of eggs in the Flan. I don’t use a mixer because the texture becomes like a sponge because of the air it gets while you are mixing the custard. Instead, I just use a large spoon, break the yolks and mix it very slowly. The result, a Flan as smooth as silk. Enjoy!!
