Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 can Dulce de Leche
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon water

Instructions

To Make Caramel

  1. In a heavy sauce over medium heat pour the sugar and water
  2. Let the sugar boil until caramel forms, stir occasionally
  3. Pour the caramel into a 9" cake mold, bundt pan mold or custard cups and let it cool for 5 minutes

To Make Flan

  1. In a blender combine the dulce de leche, vanilla, evaporated milk and eggs

  2. Strain this mixture into a bowl
  3. Pour the flan mixture on top of the caramel
  4. Microwave EACH custard cup at 50% power for 2 minutes. If you're doing a whole cake pan, microwave at 50% power for 8-9 minutes. If you decide to microwave the 2-3 cups at a time just increase by 1-2 minutes
  5. Mixture should be a bit wet when taken out of the microwave
  6. Cool for about 1-2 hours in the fridge (for large cake cool overnight)
  7. Unmold by running a knife from the edges of the flan then turn onto a plate
  8. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Times in the microwave may vary. Flan should look firm, wet on top and a bit jiggly in the center.
