Classic Caramel Flan


Classic Caramel Flan






Caramel flan, also known as crème caramel, is a rich, creamy custard dessert topped with a layer of


clear caramel sauce. This dessert is popular in many parts of the world and is known for its smooth

texture and delightful caramel flavor. It’s an elegant and indulgent treat that’s surprisingly easy to

make at home.


For the Caramel:

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup water


For the Custard:

1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk

1 can (12 oz) evaporated milk

1 cup whole milk

5 large eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract




Prepare the Caramel:

In a medium saucepan, combine the granulated sugar and water.

Cook over medium heat, swirling the pan occasionally (do not stir), until the sugar dissolves and turns

a deep amber color.


Quickly pour the caramel into a 9-inch round baking dish, tilting the dish to evenly coat the bottom.

Set aside.

Prepare the Custard:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

In a large bowl, whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, whole milk, eggs,

and vanilla extract until smooth and well combined.

Pour the custard mixture over the caramel in the baking dish.

Bake the Flan:

Place the baking dish in a larger baking pan. Fill the larger pan with hot water until it reaches halfway


up the sides of the baking dish.

Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes, or until the custard is set and a knife inserted into the

center comes out clean.

Remove the flan from the water bath and let it cool to room temperature. Then refrigerate for at least

4 hours or overnight.


To unmold the flan, run a knife around the edges of the dish to loosen it.

Place a large serving plate on top of the baking dish and quickly invert it, allowing the flan to release

onto the plate with the caramel sauce cascading over it.

Slice and serve chilled.



Classic caramel flan is a timeless dessert that combines the lusciousness of a creamy custard with the

rich, sweet taste of caramel. Its silky texture and elegant presentation make it a perfect dessert for

special occasions or whenever you’re in the mood for a decadent treat. Enjoy this delightful dessert

chilled for the best flavor and texture.
