Flan I


"This is a wonderful flan recipe from the late Iris Perez. Its origin is Mexican. For a denser, cheesecake-like texture, substitute eight ounces of cream cheese for two of the eggs."

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Have ready 9 inch round cake pan.
  2. In blender or food processor, or using electric mixer, combine eggs, condensed milk and vanilla and blend until smooth. In medium sauce pan, cook sugar, stirring constantly, until it liquefies. When it starts to turn light brown, remove from heat and pour into waiting pan. Pour egg mixture over liquid sugar.

  4. Bake 70 minutes in the preheated oven, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Remove pan from water bath and let cool completely, about 1 hour. Run a knife along the edge of the pan, place a serving plate on top and invert. Serve.
