  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Place baking dish in a deep baking pan. Pour in enough water to reach halfway up the baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until custard is set and top is light brown, about 1 hour.

  • 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. Easy to make, easy to eat and easy to like. Read More

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

Couldn't get my sugar to brown. It just hardened at the bottom of my mini Bundy pans. SUPER EASY to make!!!! Tastes just like cheese cake not flan though. Too heavy Didn't have evaporated milk substitute 3/4 cup on milk , 1/4 cup of half and half. Can't wait to make it again!!!YUM Read More

The flan was really easy, but I had a hard time making the caramel topping. I finally got right on the third try!! My husband was impressed. Flan is one of his favorite desserts. Read More
