  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat sugar and water together in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves into a light brown caramel, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour into a round glass baking dish.
  3. Place condensed milk, evaporated milk, eggs, cream cheese, and vanilla extract in a blender; blend into a smooth custard. Pour over caramelized sugar in the baking dish.
  4. Place baking dish in a deep baking pan. Pour in enough water to reach halfway up the baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until custard is set and top is light brown, about 1 hour.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate until cold, 3 to 4 hours.

Basic Cream Cheese Flan. Have been making flan like this for as long as I can remember. Depending how I feel, I will make it without the cream cheese using 1 cup heavy whipping cream in place. ...

adding water to the sugar is unecessary. Not sure if I put that in the original recipe.
