Creamy Caramel Flan

"Recieved this from another on-line site and love that it's a little different from the other recipes on this site as it contains cream cheese making for a flan that the intro describes as a creamy cross between an egg custard and a cheesecake, both of which this family loves. While posting photos discovered that this recipe was the same as recipe#52285; I'm trying to notify CC but unable to at this time. Hope to have it corrected as soon as possible"

Ready In:
1hr 30mins
1 10 inch round pie




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a small, heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, cook sugar, stirring, until golden.
  • Pour into a 10 inch round baking dish, tilting to coat bottom and sides. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth.
  • Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated.
  • Beat in condensed and evaporated milk and vanilla until smooth.
  • Pour into caramel coated pan.
  • Line a roasting pan with a damp kitchen towel.
  • Place baking dish on towel, inside roasting pan, and place roasting pan on oven rack.
  • Fill roasting pan with boiling water to reach halfway up the sides of the baking dish.
  • Bake in preheated oven 50 to 60 minutes, until center is just set.
  • Cool one hour on wire rack, then chill in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight. To unmold, run a knife around edges of pan and invert on a rimmed serving platter.
  • HINT: This came from one of the reviewers - Pouring the sugar syrup into the glass baking dish, and because the glass was cool, the sugar hardened almost immediately. So after spending 30 minutes chipping a rock-hard blob of sugar out of the bottom of the dish, tried it again. But this time, put the baking dish in a hot oven for about 5 minutes before adding the sugar. The hot dish kept the sugar liquified just long enough for to get an even coating.
