If you're unfamiliar with flan, think of it as a tasty variation on custard. One warning, though—it's very filling. A small slice of flan goes a long way! —Pat Forete, Miami, Florida

MAKES: 8-10 servings

Ingredients

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

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 slice) equals 346 calories, 16 g fat (10 g saturated fat), 155 mg cholesterol, 182 mg sodium, 41 g carbohydrate, 0 fiber, 10 g protein.

Directions

  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.

Esta sabroso! However, I use six eggs without the cream cheese, and also mix all in a blender.

Try banana, orange, rum, or what ever extract sounds good. Also, let the flan stand for ten minutes, run a knife around the edge and invert onto a plate with a lip. You will then have the sauce mentioned.

Instead of melted sugar, I use Leche Quemada (Cajeta). And instead of 5 eggs I use only 4. I also put all ingredients in blender...way easier!

Spoon WHAT sauce over each serving? Will there be enough caramelized sugar to do this with?
