Flan is one of the most traditional, and tastiest postres Latin American cuisine has to offer. Best of all, it’s also super fast to make! Here’s one of the quickest flan recipes out there.
What You’ll Need to Make a Quick Flan.
In order to make a flan in no time flat, you’ll need three-quarters of a cup of sugar, one package of softened cream cheese, five eggs, one 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk, one 12-ounce can of evaporated milk, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. That’s it!
Get the Flan All Mixed and Ready.
Now that you’ve got the ingredients for you flan, it’s time to prep it. Start by taking out a heavy saucepan, and using it to cook and stir sugar over a medium heat until it’s all melted. This should take about 15 minutes to do. Once it’s golden, pour it quickly into a souffle dish. Tilt it and shift it around so that the sugar coats the bottom evenly, and let it stand for about 10 minutes. While the sugar is setting, beat the cream cheese in another bowl until it’s all smooth, then beat in the eggs — one at a time — until they’re all combined. Mix in all the other ingredients, and pour it over the caramelized sugar, which should have set by then.
Now, It’s Time to Bake Your Flan.
Now that your ingredients are all prepared, it’s time to bake it, but first you’re going to want to put your souffle dish in a bigger baking pan. Then, pour boiling water in this bigger pan, but not in the souffle dish. Set both into a 350 degree oven, and bake it for an hour. Then, let it cool for a spell, and remove it by running a knife around the edges and flipping it over.
Now, enjoy your flan!
