Health Highlights


3 1/2 cup Milk, fat-free (skimmed) (You can use reduced fat milk)
8 large egg Egg
8 tbsp Cane sugar
2 tbsp Cane sugar (For the caramel)


Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Heat some water to cover ¼ of a large container. Place the water once is hot in a large container

Mix all the ingredients except the sugar for the caramel. Place the mix in a small container. Cover the container with aluminum paper

Place the small container inside the large container (which holds the water)

Set the two containers in the oven for 45 minutes covered

Check if the flan is ready with punching it with a knife. The knife should be almost clean

Once the flan is cooked, remove the aluminum paper and let it cook 5 more minutes or until the top is toasted.

Let it cold completely

Serve with a bit of dulce de leche


You can prepare some caramel in the base of the small container (the one that holds the mix for the flan).

The base of the caramel is sugar and 2 tablespoons of water. There are two ways to prepare the caramel:

  • By heating the small container directly on the heat with the sugar inside. Let it melt until brown. Make sure the container is heat resistant and remember than the container will get VERY HOT! You can also use a different heat resistant pan and once is melted and brown pour it into the small container.
  • By heating the sugar and water in a heat resistant container (Pyrex) in the microwave. Add intervals of 1 minute or less until the sugar is brown. Pour the caramel into the flan container

Let the caramel cool before adding the flan mix

REMEMBER that the caramel and its container will get VERY HOT. Act with precaution.

NOTE: Containers will need to be oven-resistant
