Flan with Condensed Milk

You will love this recipe for flan with condensed milk!

Victor and I share the same passion for homemade desserts! Both of us have been lucky enough to be part of large families where there is a good eating culture ; although , when the food is on the table you have to be fast enough to get your share 🙂

In our homes, desserts occupy an important place in the daily menu. Dessert is the last course ; however, it plays an important role in closing the meal in the best possible way. That´s why we always make them with great care and affection.

When Victor was little, he loved flan. As soon as he woke up, he had flan for breakfast, flan for lunch and flan for dinner. If it weren’t for his mother, I think, Victor would have only eaten flan!

A natural step was Victor learning how to make flan himself… so he could eat as many as he wanted; therefore, his grandmother gave him a homemade recipe.

According to his little sister, one of the happiest memories of her childhood was when Victor made this flan for dessert: “His flans used to come out delicious, I still remember how smooth was the texture”.

To make this delicious flan you only need four ingredients: condensed milk, whole milk, eggs and sugar.

Recipe for Flan with Condensed Milk

  • Preheat the oven to 356°F ( 180°C ).
  • Prepare the bain-marie as follows: Fill a large baking dish halfway with water and allow the water to heat up.

Caramel Sauce

  • In a saucepan, add 125 grams of sugar and a teaspoon of water over high heat. Do not stir the sugar neither with wooden spoons nor metal spoons; just gently shake and tilt the saucepan until the sugar mixes well and browns evenly. As soon as it is golden brown, remove it from the heat and pour it in a large flanera. Set aside.

Condensed Milk Egg Custard

  • In a bowl, pour 370 grams (one container/can) of condensed milk. Use the same empty can as a measure, fill it up with whole milk and pour into the same bowl. Stir with a spatula until mixture is combined.
  • Separate 4 egg yolks from 4 egg whites.
  • In a separate bowl, add 4 egg yolks and whisk with a fork.
  • Add the egg yolks into the milk mixture and stir well with the spatula, or a whisk, until combined. Set aside.
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff with a hand held mixer on high speed.
  • When the egg whites are stiff, gradually add into the yolk mixture. Stir with a spatula with encircling movements.
  • Pour the mixture into the previously caramelized flan pan. Tip: pass the mixture through a strainer while pouring it into the flan pan (flanera) to get rid of lumps and bubbles.

Bain-Marie

  • Cover the flan pan with the lid and place it into the bain-marie you have already prepared in the oven. Close the oven door and bake for 50 minutes later. Make sure it is done by pricking a needle. If it comes out stained, leave it a few more minutes. If it comes out clean, it is ready.

Chilling Time

  • Allow it to cool for about ten minutes to room temperature before putting them in the refrigerator. The chilling time is 3 hours.
  • Before serving, unmold them with the help of a knife. Place a plate on top and turn the flanera upside down. Et voilà... you have the flan that will take you back to your childhood!
