  • Melt 1/2 cup sugar in an aluminum loaf pan and heat over medium heat. Continue to cook until it caramelizes, being careful to not burn the sugar. Fill a large pot of water with about 1 inch of water and place over medium heat. Move the aluminum pan into the large pot and set into the water.

  • Combine the pumpkin pie filling, evaporated milk, condensed milk, eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, vanilla, and allspice in a blender, blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan.

  • Bake in preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or overnight.

  • Run a knife along the edge of the loaf pan to loosen the flan. Invert the pan onto a serving plate and tap to release the dessert.

Great recipe. The four star rating is only because I changed the recipe a bit. I used regular pumpkin filling and added my own spices. I make a lot of flans so I also like a creamier taste and ended up adding the whole 10 oz. can of condensed milk. The flan came out very light and was incredibly easy to make. Next time for a denser flan I may substitute some or all of the evaporated milk with 1/2 and 1/2. Will make it less fluffy and more flan like. To the user who had a hard time getting it out of the pan - use a pyrex dish or loaf pan and a bit more sugar (1 cup) in the caramelization part in the beginning and be sure to coat the pan completely. This will help the flan pop right out of the dish and then there's a little more syrup to drizzle over the flan for a yummy presentation.:) Read More

This got RAVE reviews at Thanksgiving and I'll definitely be making it again! I love pumpkin pie but dislike crust so I was looking for an alternative. I love flan too and this recipe exemplified the best of both worlds. It was inexpensive and easy to make but tasted like a million bucks especially the leftovers two days after I'd baked it! For a creamy delicate more flan-like texture I added the whole can of sweetened condensed milk and baked it for an extra half hour. The water had evaporated by about 1/2 after an hour of baking - if this is the case and you need more baking time add more hot water and check for doneness about every 15 minutes. Read More

Yummy a great combination of two of my favorite desserts. For a more pumpkiny flavour you can double the pumkin and then it turns out almost exactly like pumpkin pie filling without the crust. Read More

This made a tasty change from pumpkin pie. Nice smooth texture. I made this more diabetic friendly by using homemade sugar-free condensed milk and Splenda Baking Blend for the caramel. Read More

First time making flan and it came out great. On the advice of another reviewer I used more condensed milk (about three to four more ounces). I used a 9" round aluminum pan and baked it for one hour in a hot water bath with a kitchen towel under the flan pan. I removed it from the oven and let it cool in the water bath before refrigerating. My family loves flan so I tried this one for Christmas and everyone liked it. As other reviewers stated it was similar to pumpkin pie without the crust. Read More

I must have done something wrong. Did not comeout of pan at all. Sugar topping boiled out of pan when cooking. Flan was kind of grainy not smooth like normal flan. Read More

This is a great recipe and it turned out perfectly. My mother-in-law who is Cuban raved about this and asked me to make it the next time she visits. I think it tasted like pumpkin pie without a crust and the texture was different than original flan because of the pumpkin. I prefer the creaminess of flan so I gave this recipe 4 stars. Read More

I made this for a dinner for around 50 people and it was wonderful better than I thought it would be. I did have trouble getting it out of glass pan. I know it's good when someone wants the recipe! Read More
