For the caramelEdit

ProcedureEdit

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C)
  2. Add cream cheese, leche condensada, evaporated milk, eggs, and vanilla extract into a mixing bowl. Mix ingredients thoroughly at medium speed until smooth.
  3. Place the sugar in the bottom of a small circular baking pan. Add the flan mixture on top without mixing the two layers.
  4. Fill a large baking sheet with about 1.5 inch of water. This is called baño de Maria (bain-marie).
  5. Carefully place baking sheet with flan mixture in the baño de Maria.
  6. Cook flan for 45-50 minutes in the preheated oven. The flan is ready when you insert a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.
  7. Let flan cool until safe to handle. Tip the flan pan upside-down into a serving plate, and refrigerate for 5 hours.
  8. Serve with fresh mint leaves for garnish.
