Hello again! There are only 15 days left until Christmas… I have no idea where the time goes.
Can we please slow it down??? ??
The kids and I have been soaking up some Christmas cheer by watching Christmas movies. By the way, have you seen my Ultimate Christmas Movie List? I think it’s time I update it, but there are some goodies in there, like my all time favorite Christmas movie – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
It never gets old. Throw in a crazy cousin, stuck-up miserable neighbors and an evil squirrel and that is my kind of Christmas right there. LOL!
And what better way to watch a great Christmas movie than by sitting on the couch enjoying one of your favorite desserts. Mine is flan. Flan is a popular creamy custard dessert made throughout all of Latin America and there are many versions of it. My mother has her version and I have my own.
And I truly believe I have the smoothest version of it… just sayin’!

So if you want to learn how to make flan, get your tastebuds ready because this dessert is super sweet!
- 5 eggs
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1 can of condensed milk
- 1 can of evaporated milk
- 1 tbsp of vanilla
- 1 cup of sugar
You want to start by making your caramel. Melt sugar in a small sauce pan until it turns golden brown. Then coat the entire bottom of your pan. I used a round 9×9 pan. Be careful, it is hot!
Watch the detailed video instructions on my YouTube channel or at the end of this post. ⬇️
Next you want to combine all of your flan ingredients in a blender and blend about 30 seconds to 1 minutes, just until everything is well mixed. Do NOT over mix. This will make the flan too dense.
Poor mix into your pan. You will need to bake this in a water bath.

Pour hot water into the bath after you pour the mixture.
Stick in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Once you remove it from the oven. Give it a bit to sit on the counter and cool down before removing it. You still want it rather warm though when you do. Be sure to use a knife to “unstick” it from the sides. The caramel underneath acts as a barrier between the flan and the pan so it will come right out.
Let it cool some more before placing it into the fridge. You want to leave it at least 4 hours in the fridge or overnight so that it gets completely cold and then serve!
It’s so smooth and creamy!
I hope you give this a try and learn how to make flan with this super easy recipe. You will definitely enjoy this dessert!
