Spanish Flan

Spanish Flan



 Smooth and creamy flan.

Spanish Flan is very much like the French version of Creme Caramel, but with slight variations giving it a different texture. Try them both!



1 c granulated sugar

4 large eggs

1 – 14oz can sweetened condensed milk

1 – 12 oz can evaporated milk

1 T vanilla extract



  1. Place the sugar in a heavy saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until it dissolve and forms a golden brown syrup. Pour the hot syrup into the bottom of 6 ramekins or an 8 or 9-inch round, glass baking dish. Immediately swirl dish to evenly cover bottom with the syrup mixture. It will harden very fast, so work quickly.
  2. Whisk eggs in a large bowl until well blended. Add sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and vanilla; whisk to combine thoroughly.
  3. Pour egg and milk mixture over the syrup in baking dish. Cover with foil and place in a hot water bath – place the baking dish inside another oven-proof dish and fill with water until it comes about halfway up the side of the baking dish. Bake in a preheated 350° F oven for approximately 60 minutes; flan is ready when a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  4. Cool completely. When ready to serve, run knife around edges, then place plate on top and invert quickly. Gently lift off baking dish and allow syrup to run over the sides of the flan.
