A super easy baked flan recipe that is prepared using a blender. It's great served cold and has a creamy texture like custard. 
Servings: 6
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 5 whole eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.
  • Add the sugar to a small non-stick sauce pan over medium heat.
  • Shake and swirl the sugar around the pan so the sugar will be evenly distributed as they start to dissolve or turn brown and caramelized.
  • When the sugar starts to caramelize, lift the pan couple of inches above the heat and keep the pan moving in circular motion.
  • Once the sugar has liquified, pour into your flan container or dish, making sure to coat evenly the bottom of the dish or container. Set Aside.
  • Now, pour the condensed milk, heavy cream, evaporated milk, eggs and vanilla extract into the blender.
  • Blend on high for one minute. After that, strain the mixture using a cheesecloth.
  • Then pour the mixture over the caramelized sugar in the baking dish or ramekins.
  • Place the baking dish / ramekins inside a larger baking pan and slide the pan into the pre-heated oven.
  • Pour enough hot water into baking pan to come halfway up sides of ramekins. This is called the water bath that will allow the flan to bake gently and evenly.
  • Bake until centers of flans are gently set, about 50 - 60 minutes. Transfer flans to rack and cool. Chill until cold, about 2 hours.
  • Remove the flan from the water bath and let it cool completely.
  • To serve, run small sharp knife around flan to loosen. Turn over onto plate. Shake gently to release flan.
  • Carefully lift off ramekin allowing caramel syrup to run over flan. Repeat with remaining flans and serve.
