Restaurant Recipes from Razzle Dazzle Recipes
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 3/4 cups milk
2 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
(use the smallest size package of cream cheese
which is slightly over 2 ounces)
Place the sugar in a small skillet over medium high heat and stir
constantly until it liquefies. Allow the sugar to boil and turn a
walnut brown color, Watch carefully because it will burn quickly!!
Pour the caramelized sugar into the bottom of a 9-inch flan pan or
soufflé dish (or Pyrex casserole dish) and working quickly, spread
it evenly with a rubber spatula over the bottom of the pan.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the eggs, yolks, vanilla extract, milks, and cream cheese in a
blender or food processor and process for at least 5 minutes.
(Depending on the size of your blender, you may need to blend this
in two batches.)
Pour the mixture into the flan pan and place in a baking pan in the
center of the oven. Pour boiling water halfway up the sides of the
pan and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a knife inserted in
the center comes out clean. Watch carefully and cover the flan with
foil if the top seems to be getting too brown.
Remove from the oven, allow to cool to room temperature, then cut
around the edges and invert onto a deep sided serving plate. Serve
each piece with some of the caramel sauce.
NOTE: The flan can be made up to 3 days in advance before serving
and kept covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator. Leave it in
the pan until ready to serve.
