A brazilian lady friend called 'Maria do Carmo' would bring this to all my brazilian parties. She finally gave me the recipe. This flan is inexpensive and easy to do.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To caramelize the sugar: Add the sugar to a medium heavy saucepan over medium low heat. When sugar starts to melt, stir gently and occasionally until it starts to turns light, clear brown; do not let it burn. Be carefull at this point the sugar will be extremely hot! Use oven mits to pour the caramelized sugar into a ring mold/or pan. Swirl the sugar over the sides to completely cover the pan.
  2. For the flan: Mix all of the ingredients with a blender or mixer. Mix until the ingredients are well incorporated but do not overmix as it will cause bubbles in your flan. Pour mixture into the mold/pan. Put the mold/pan into a larger pan with water in it to make a 'bain marie'. Carefully put this into the oven at 350 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours. Check with a toothpick in the center of the flan to make sure it is set up. Carefully remove your pan from the oven as the water will be very hot.
  3. Cool the flan for a few hours or better yet overnight in the refrigerator and invert into a serving plate that is large enough to accomodate the flan and some of the caramel.
