Easy Peasy Flan

   Indulge in this super easy, super creamy and deliciously delicate Flan recipe. This recipe was handed down to me by my very special, beautiful cousin Melissa and is influenced by my Peruvian background. In Peru, we call this Crema Volteada. It’s been tweaked just a bit to enhance the creaminess and flavor. It’s definitely one of my most requested desserts not just by my cake friends but my family and especially my husband. You will not be disappointed! Enjoy and comment below how you liked it.

*This recipe gives you about 12 servings. Servings may vary depending on how you slice them, or who you share it with.

Instructions
  1. You will need one 8" round x 3" high baking pan. Pre Heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. First, we are going to make the sugar syrup, directly in your 8-inch pan. On your stove top. Please be very very extremely careful as the pan will get hot. Make Syrup by combining sugar and lemon juice until sugar is wet like sand. Cook on stove top until mixture smells slightly like a lightly burnt caramel. (see video below) Now set aside to cool!
  3. In a large clean bowl whisk your eggs first. Slowly add your condenced milk first and mix well as Condensed Milk is very thick.
  4. Next add you Evaporated Milk, Vanilla Extract, pinch of Salt and Cinnamon. Whisk throughly with your hand mixer or with a whisk.
  5. Slowly pour your Flan mixture into your cooled, syruped cake pan. Place your flan pan in your separate bigger pan. Before placing your pans in the oven add water to your lage pan for your "water bath".
  6. Bake at 350 degrees farenheight for 60 minutes. Turn your oven off after 60 minutes. The magic trick is to let your flan sit in the oven for 2+ hours with the temperature OFF.
Recipe Notes

*Watch the video above the recipe before getting started. *I DO NOT recommend using a Stand Mixer as the mixture is liquid an will create a watery mess all over your kitchen. * You can use a blender, but for delicate creamy results, I highly recommend hand mixing all of your ingredients with a whisk. *This recipe gives you about 12 servings. Servings may vary depending on how you slice them, or who you share it with!
