Easy Blender Flan

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare Caramel: In a small saucepan, melt the granulated sugar over medium heat. Stir constantly until it turns into a golden caramel color. Be careful not to burn it. Once caramelized, quickly pour it into a round cake pan or individual ramekins, tilting the pan to evenly coat the bottom. Set aside to cool and harden.
  3. Blend the Flan Mixture: In a blender, combine the eggs, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth and well combined.
  4. Pour into Pan: Pour the flan mixture over the hardened caramel in the pan.
  5. Bake: Place the filled pan into a larger baking dish or roasting pan. Pour hot water into the larger dish until it reaches about halfway up the sides of the flan pan. This water bath will help ensure even cooking and a smooth texture. Carefully transfer to the preheated oven and bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until the center is set.
  6. Cool and Chill: Once done, remove the flan from the oven and let it cool to room temperature. Then, refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight, to allow it to fully set.
  7. Serve: To serve, run a knife around the edges of the pan to loosen the flan. Place a serving plate upside down over the pan and carefully invert the flan onto the plate, allowing the caramel to flow over the top. Slice and enjoy!

This easy blender flan is creamy, smooth, and deliciously sweet with a hint of caramel flavor from the caramelized sugar. It’s a classic dessert that’s perfect for any occasion!
