Easiest Flan Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PAM Cooking Spray.

It’s time for the holidays and many families have several desserts that they must have during the season. One of the desserts that I love making for my family during the holidays is Flan. It is a custard like dessert with a caramel topping that is extremely popular with Latino families.  This is one of my husband’s favorite desserts and around holiday time he will politely ask when the flan will be coming! There is something about your favorite food that makes you reminisce of past holidays. It definitely reminds me of my mom and grandmother cooking in the kitchen  while I sat in a chair watching them prepare all the holiday food.   This dessert brings back all of those memories and happy emotions. I love how food does that for me.

Easiest Flan Recipe

It takes a lot of very rich ingredients to make this delicious Flan come together. One key of a great Flan dessert is its presentation. This Flan is an important part of my family’s holiday tradition and having the flan stick to the baking dish is simply not an option. Using Pam Cooking Spray helps the sugar at the bottom glide off the baking dish so it looks amazing on my holiday table. What I also love about Pam Cooking Spray is the zero calories per serving, so you can always have an extra piece of Flan….or two!


Easiest Flan Recipe

Easiest Flan Recipe


1 cup of White Sugar

3 Eggs

1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk

1 12oz can of evaporated milk

1 tablespoon of vanilla

First step is to preheat your oven to 350 degrees and coat your baking dish with PAM Cooking Spray.

First, we want to make the caramel coating that we see on top of the flan – it’s the first thing that goes into the baking dish. Spray PAM Cooking Spray onto your pan and pour one cup of sugar into the pan. A quick “Smart Tip” I use is to spray the PAM Cooking Spray onto the whisk before using it. As you mix the sugar, this will help it not stick to the whisk. Using the whisk, keep mixing the sugar until it starts to melt and brown in color. When it turns golden brown, pour into your baking dish and swirl the dish around so the entire bottom is coated with the browned sugar.

 Now let’s make the Flan! In a large bowl place the eggs and beat them. Then add condensed milk, vanilla and evaporated milk. Mix until smooth.

 Pour the mixture into the baking dish over the browned sugar and then cover it with foil paper and place it in the oven.

 Doesn’t it look so delicious? This is what it will look like when you take it out of the oven. It will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour to bake – when it cools you can invert it onto your serving plate and serve.

When serving a piece of Flan, drizzle some of the caramel sauce onto the slice.
