“This recipe is a cross between egg custard and cheesecake. Rich and delicious.” - by Jo Poynor
Original recipe yields 1 10 inch round
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- In a small, heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, cook sugar, stirring, until golden. Pour into a 10 inch round baking dish, tilting to coat bottom and sides. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Beat in condensed and evaporated milk and vanilla until smooth. Pour into caramel coated pan. Line a roasting pan with a damp kitchen towel. Place baking dish on towel, inside roasting pan, and place roasting pan on oven rack. Fill roasting pan with boiling water to reach halfway up the sides of the baking dish.
- Bake in preheated oven 50 to 60 minutes, until center is just set. Cool one hour on wire rack, then chill in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight. To unmold, run a knife around edges of pan and invert on a rimmed serving platter.

So after I sp..." See moreent the next 30 minutes chipping a rock-hard blob of sugar out of the bottom of my dish, I tried it again. But this time, I put the baking dish in a hot oven for about 5 minutes before adding the sugar. The hot dish kept the sugar liquified just long enough for me to get an even coating. After I learned that trick, the flan turned out very well. I made this for dessert after a Mexican-themed dinner, and everyone really liked it."
