Delicious Dulce De Leche Flan Recipe

Please share!

The dulce de leche flan is a true Latin American delight. This caramel custard made of milk, eggs and sugar, has a dense consistency thanks to the dulce de leche.  Bonus? This dessert is rich in protein, thanks to the eggs and milk.

The flan is a crowd pleaser and very easy to prepare. It is important that you be very careful when preparing and pouring the caramel that coats the flan. If you’re going to make the flan in individual ramekins, use a small pot to make the caramel by heating sugar until it melts and changes color. If you’re going to make it in a “flanera” or special mold, then you can make the caramel in there. In any case, once the flan is cooked, it is best to let it cool for about four hours, or overnight, in the refrigerator.

Here’s my recipe for this delicious flan.

Dulce de leche flan recipe

This delicious caramel custard is made of milk, eggs, and sugar. When you prepare it, make the caramel first because you will need it to coat the ramekins or flanera. Melt the sugar over medium heat until brown. Pour some on the ramekins to coat them.
The rest of the process is so easy! In a blender mix the milk, eggs and dulce de leche (a sweet syrup). Pour this mix into each of the ramekins inside a deep dish or tray that has water in it with aluminum foil on top to cover them up. Bake for 50 minutes if they are small or 40 minutes if they are large.

  • Pour the caramel and coat the ramekins.
  • In a blender mix the milk, eggs and dulce de leche. Pour the mix into the ramekins.
  • Put the ramekins in a deep dish or tray. Add water to the tray and cover with aluminum foil. This way the custard will cook as if in a double boiler.
