Tres Leches Flan

Southern Living NOVEMBER 2006

  • Yield: Makes 8 servings
  • Cook time:7 Minutes
  • Prep time:20 Minutes
  • Bake:1 Hour
  • Chill:8 Hours

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 1 (14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12-oz.) can evaporated milk
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Hot water (170° to 175°)

Preparation

1. Cook sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, 5 to 7 minutes or until melted and medium-brown in color. Quickly pour into a 9-inch round cake pan with 2-inch sides. Using oven mitts, tilt cake pan to evenly coat bottom and seal edges.

2. Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer in a large bowl 1 minute. (Do not overbeat.) Reduce speed to low; add eggs and egg yolks, and beat until well blended. Add sweetened condensed milk and next 3 ingredients, beating at low speed 1 minute. (Mixture should not be foamy and may be slightly lumpy.) Pour milk mixture over sugar in pan. Place cake pan in a roasting pan; add hot water halfway up sides of cake pan.

3. Bake at 325° for 1 hour or until edges are set. (The middle will not be set.) Remove from oven; remove cake pan from water, and place on a wire rack. Let cool completely. Cover and chill at least 8 hours. Run a knife around edges to loosen, and invert onto a serving platter.

Note: The flan will continue to set as it cools and will set completely when it is chilled.
