Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 60 minutes
Total: 75 minutes



  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of whole milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

  2. In a small saucepan, melt the sugar over medium heat until it turns into a golden caramel.

  3. Pour the caramel into a 9-inch baking dish, tilting it to evenly coat the bottom. Set aside.

  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract, and milk until well combined.

  5. Gently pour the mixture over the caramel in the baking dish.

  6. Place the baking dish in a larger roasting pan and fill the roasting pan with hot water until it reaches halfway up the sides of the baking dish.

  7. Carefully transfer the roasting pan to the preheated oven and bake for 60 minutes, or until the flan is set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  8. Remove the flan from the oven and let it cool to room temperature.

  9. Once cooled, refrigerate the flan for at least 2 hours, or overnight, to allow it to fully set.

  10. To serve, run a knife along the edges of the baking dish to loosen the flan. Place a large plate on top of the baking dish and flip it over to release the flan.

  11. Serve chilled and enjoy!
