  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 5 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350˚F (175˚C).
  2. To create the caramel, melt sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring until golden. Swirl the pan until the sugar turns a cinnamon color and dissolves completely. Pour this into a 9-inch round cake pan, tilting to coat the bottom evenly.
  3. Blend condensed milk, evaporated milk, heavy cream, vanilla, eggs, and salt in a blender for 1 minute on low. Strain to remove any lumps.
  4. Cover the pan with foil, ensuring it doesn’t touch the custard’s surface.
  5. Place the cake pan in a large roasting pan, add hot water to halfway up the cake pan’s sides, and bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. The custard should jiggle stiffly when done.
  6. Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate covered for at least 6 hours.
  7. To serve, run a knife around the pan edges, invert onto a rimmed platter, and garnish with berries.

Delight in the timeless elegance and creamy sweetness of this Classic Caramel Flan, a dessert that promises to leave a lasting impression on your taste buds. Enjoy!
