Flan Recipe 

  • One can of condensed milk

  • One can of evaporated milk

  • 2 Tsp of vanilla extract

  • 1 ⅓ cup granulated sugar 

  • 4 Large Eggs


     This Flan recipe I made my own through many different trials of failed attempts.

Here is a walk-through of making this custard dessert in a few short steps. 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.

  2. Get a blender. If you don’t have a blender, use a large bowl and whisk.

  3. In a blender or bowl pour in evaporated milk, condensed milk, vanilla extract, eggs in. Blend well or mix well until you don’t see condensed milk at the bottom. 

  4. In a cooking pan heated over high heat, pour in your sugar. 

  5. Stir your sugar continuously so it doesn’t burn, take off heat when the sugar is light and all clumps are melted.

  6. In a grease cake pan, pour the sugar in and roll it around the pan until it covers the bottom of the pan. 

  7. Put that cake pan in a bigger pan that fits the smaller cake pan with water for a water bath.

  8. Put the pans in the oven and bake for 40 minutes until the top is firm.

  9. Wait for the flan to cool off outside of the oven until it’s not warm and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

  10. Take the Flan out of the fridge and grab a plate bigger than the cake pan.

  11.   Cut the outside of the flan in the cake pan for it to fall out easily and not break.

  12. Put the plate on top of the cake pan and flip the plate and cake pan over.

  13. Lift up the pan, cut up slices and enjoy :)


     The Flan needs to be eaten refrigerated. If it’s warm, it won’t taste how it is meant to taste like. Cutting up fruit like strawberries, peaches and grapes will make it taste great as well, though it isn’t needed to be enjoyed. You could also add whipped cream to the Flan. You can keep it in the fridge for 10 days.
