  • 2 pieces eggs
  • ½ ounce unflavored gelatin powder uncolored
  • 7.6 ounces all-purpose cream
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 2 1/2 tablespoons water
  • 8 tablespoons granulated white sugar


  • Make the caramel by combining sugar and water in a saucepan. Apply heat. Continue cooking while stirring until the mixture thickens and the color turns medium brown. This is now the caramel.
  • Pour the caramel into separate molds. (Note: you may use glass, metal, or ceramic baking pans as molds for the flan. Using ramekins is also a good idea.) Tilt the mold to spread caramel evenly. Set aside.
  • Start making the flan by cracking the eggs into the bowl. Beat using a wire whisk. Gradually add sugar. Continue beating until mixture gets well blended. Set aside.
  • Microwave ¼ cup the water for 35 seconds. Combine powdered gelatin and water. Mix well by stirring. Set aside.
  • Pour milk into a pan. Apply heat until it goes into a simmer. (Note: do not apply too much heat. We want the milk to only be below boiling point).
  • Scoop around 5 to 6 tablespoons of warm milk (1 tablespoon at a time) into the bowl with sugar and eggs. Continue to stir the mixture. (Note: This process is also known as tempering. Two ingredients with different temperatures are gradually combined in order to slowly rise to the same temp.)
  • Pour the mixture from the bowl into the pan. Continue stirring until well blended.
  • Gradually add gelatin mixture while stirring. Continue cooking in low heat for 1 minute. Turn off heat.
  • Transfer mixture back to the bowl. Add all-purpose cream and vanilla extract. Stir until well blended. Remove bubbles by skimming.
  • Pour the flan mixture into the molds. Cover each mold with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Serve for dessert. Share and enjoy!
