My favorite Flan recipe! You get a rich and creamy custard style dessert covered with a deeply flavorful caramel sauce. And this version also includes luscious cream cheese to really take it over the top!
Flan is a European and Latin dessert made up of a caramel topping and custard base that’s made with milk, eggs and sweetener (which may already be included in the milk). It is usually baked in a water bath for the best texture, and after baking it is chilled then later inverted onto a platter.
This version is Flan de Queso – Cream Cheese Flan. It is easily my favorite! Traditional Spanish flan is so tasty but then when you add some rich and tangy cream cheese it becomes just that much better.
Here I’ve included step by step photos. This is especially helpful with the caramel step, be careful that you don’t burn it. And that you work carefully and quickly.
Flan is a popular creamy custard dessert in Spain and all over Latin America, and there are many versions of it. This particular caramel flan recipe is prized for its simplicity, so if you’ve never made flan before, now is the time to try.
You will need 12 (4-ounce) custard dishes, ramekins, or other similar cookware for individual servings. You can also use a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish, cake pan, or loaf pan if you want to serve it whole. Keep in mind the dishes must comfortably fit into larger baking pans. Like most custards, this version is baked in a baño maría (bain-marie or water bath) because moist, indirect heat is required for the successful cooking of the dessert.
