This tastes extremely authentic. I have followed the exact recipe many times, and it turns out perfectly each time. Once I forgot the cream cheese, and it was just as good - maybe better. Don't overcook. One time I went for an appointment and left flan cooking in the oven for 70 minutes. It still looked pretty but was dry. Jazz up the appearance with mint sprigs or raspberries on the side. By the way, it's also good without the cream cheese.

Fantastic. Cooked it for a bit over 40 min in a 9x13 pan in water bath. Smooth and creamy and perfect! Remember to start with room temperature ingredients for the best results. It will disappear quick in my house

This is the best Cream Carmel I have ever tasted, the easiest to make, and the most convenient because of the use of canned ingredients....<br/><br/>I have made this many many times this year and I have yet to meet a person who tried and did not fell in love with it....

The first time I made this, I used the whole block of cream cheese instead of just 1 ounce, and I've done it the same way ever since. I have made this a number of times by now and it's always welcome. The last time I took it to a party, someone actually told me "This is the best flan ever!"

The best one I ever had, taste, texture, etc., the only downside is cooking time, it took way to longer than 45 minutes, so just be patient and stand by the oven after 45 minutes.

The flavor is good.... I made it 2x, just the way the recipe calls for..... once it was near perfect... The 2nd time the texture was kind of grainy.... Not sure why... but it still tasted great.

I have to agree that this flan is by far one of the best I've tasted. This version of Flan totally reminds me of the Cuban kind. Must be the density in addition to the cream cheese. This was my first time making it and it was very easy and came out very tasty! A couple things I'd change when I make this next time, is to use less eggs. This flan was very dense and I'd like to change that up a bit. Also, quick tip; make sure the cream cheese is blended VERY well. Very, VERY good recipe and I would definitely make again and very soon!
