Easy Flan/ Creme Caramel

This recipe is extremely easy (I don't make desserts and even I made it successfully) and it makes rich and creamy flan. It has been adapted from this recipe. Be careful not to make it too often. It is pretty high in calories! 

Yield: 6 individual servings

Prep Time: 10 Minutes

Baking: 50 Minutes

Cooling: 2-3 Hours


4 eggs, whole
1 can (395g/ 14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 can (370 mL/ 12 fl.oz) evaporated milk
1 table spoon vanilla essence
1 cup sugar (to caramelize)


1. Caramelize the sugar in a pan on low heat, let it melt and thicken. Coat the bottom of the ramekins (6). I added a couple of table spoons of water to the sugar to help it along.

2. In a big bowl, whisk the egg nice and fluffy, add the evaporated milk and whisk. Add the condensed milk and keep whisking. Add the vanilla essence.

3. Pour this custard into the ramekins. 

4. Preheat the oven to 150 C. Put the ramekins in a water bath and let it bake for about 50 minutes. 

5. When done, take them out and let them cool to room temp for a while and then refrigerate for a couple of hours. 

6. When ready to serve, carefully turn a knife around the edge of the ramekin to loosen the flan and invert onto a plate, the juicy caramel should pour out.


  1. This looks delightful, and tremendously easy to make! My fav kinds of recipe :) Thank you for sharing!
