This flan recipe has been updated slightly to make it a simple to cook dessert recipe. A traditional flan recipe is a wonderful egg-based dessert that is smooth, sweet goodness in every tasty bite; a custard caramel treat that is simply delicious.

Classic Flan Recipe

Flan was originally an Italian dish, well Roman. The name flan comes from the French word flaon, which comes from the Latin flado – flat cake. The Romans made flan with honey, the Spanish made it more custardy and sweetened it with sugar – which is the traditional flan recipe we think of today with a caramelized sauce. The classic flan recipe has been updated with “modern” conveniences – such as sweetened condensed milk.

Here is an interesting story about how flan started out as a spicy dish in Roman times, became a sweet dish too, and then eventually evolved into the classic dessert dish that we Americans think of as flan, over the centuries. This classic custard recipe is slightly updated to make it easier to cook.

Classic Flan Recipe Notes:

• The flan can be made up to 2 days in advance.

• Instead of single serve ramekins and custard cups, you can make it in a 9-inch cake pan or even a 10 cup Bundt pan.

  4. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with a whisk till well beaten.
  5. Add the evaporated and the condensed milk, along with the vanilla extract. Whisk till well blended. Make sure to use a whisk and not an electric beater as you do not want to incorporate any air.
  6. Divide the mixture evenly into the 8 ramekins or custard cups.
  7. Place the cups in a large baking pan with sides. Add warm water to the baking pan, and let it come halfway up sides of the custard cups or ramekins.
  8. Cover baking pan tightly with foil.
  9. Bake for 45 minutes. The custard should be set but a little jiggly in the middle. Let it cool for about 20 minutes on the counter.
  10. Then transfer it to the fridge and let it chill for at least 5 hours. Overnight is the best.
  11. To serve, run a butter knife along the edges of the custard cups. Invert it onto serving plates.
  12. Garnish with fresh fruits and mint leaves (optional).
