Creamiest, Dreamiest, Flan

  • Author: Jane

The ultimate creamy flan made with three types of milk and sweetened with homemade caramel. Irresistible.



1 1/2 cups sugar
6 large eggs
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 16oz can of evaporated milk
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
10 oz whole milk


Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. This makes enough for one 9-inch diameter pie plate, with a bit extra. I like to bake the extra in a small ramekin as an immediate treat πŸ™‚

Add 1 cup of sugar to a thick, heavy pot pot, and turn the heat to low. As soon as the sugar starts melting, stir. Stir for 10-15 minutes until all the sugar has browned and melted. Do not walk away from the sugar.

Pour this into your flan pan. Then whisk together the remaining ingredients, and pour them over the caramel sauce. Bake for about an hour, or until the custard has set.Remove it from the oven and let it chill at least 4 hours or overnight in the fridge. Dig in!
