This year has been extremely difficult for everyone to say the least. All we can do is hope for change and that we can soon be reunited with our families for special moments and holidays as we usually do. This year will be a little different because a lot of us won’t be having a big Thanksgiving get together. Some of us will be having get-togethers with just the immediate household and others will celebrate over Zoom. It’s important we are all able to spend time with loved ones in person or over Zoom or FaceTime to give thanks to another day and to also give thanks for each other!

Food is such a big part in getting families together and this year will not be an exception. This year I want to make it extra special and do things my kids love, like this homemade flan. It might not be the traditional Thanksgiving dessert but it sure is delicious and why not step outside of the box once in a while.

In this post I’ll be giving you all a super simple recipe for a delicious dessert for any occasion. I’m sure you’ll all love it and I can’t wait for you all to try it.

This flan is so simple but so delicious. You can add some fresh strawberries, blueberries, or do it like I do with a dollop of whipped cream. There’s plenty of ways you can make it your own!

Just like I mentioned before, it’s simple so not a lot of ingredients are needed. The results are fantastic and the flan is melt in your mouth creamy!

INGREDIENTS

1 cup evaporated milk

1 cup condensed milk

6 eggs, whole

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 pinch cinnamon

6 tbsp sugar

Caramel to coat the mold

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 354 degrees
  2. In a saucepan, place sugar over medium heat until caramel is formed. You’ll know it’s done when the sugar turns a dark honey color. Before it cools, pour it into a custard pan or mold. Set aside.
  3. Blend all ingredients until well incorporated. Once the sugar is cold and solidified at the bottom of your mold, add the blender mixture.
  4. Cook in a 354 degree oven, in a hot water bath, for 45 minutes. If you do not want to brown it, cover it with aluminum foil. Personally I like it browned so I suggest not placing aluminum foil over it.
  5. You’ll know the flan is done when you insert a knife and it comes out clean. Take it out and let cool. Refrigerate and release from the mold. Enjoy it cold!

I hope you enjoyed this simple recipe and you decide to give it a try this holiday season! If you do make it, be sure to tag me @homeandfabulous so I can see how it turned out! I wish you all the best holiday season with your loved ones. Happy holidays from me to you!
