Caramel Flan

Caramel Cheese Flan

In a pan combine   
4 ozs of sugar
2 ozs of cold water

dissolve on a low heat, mixing it constantly so it does not boil before every crystal is melted.

Once all the sugar is melted, boil it until it becomes the colour you desire. A golden amber will be sweet while a dark colour will be bitter sweet.
Immediately pour it into a ready 9 inch cake pan.
Set aside.

In a liquidiser mix together
11 ozs milk
10 ozs condensed milk….1 can
7-8 ozs evaporated milk
1-2 ozs sugar
pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
 Optionally add a tbsp of rum or cognac
Blend  briefly
With the machine running add
8 ozs of cream cheese in small pieces at room temperature
4 large eggs at room temperature only to combine do not over beat.
Pour into the prepared caramel pan.
Preheat oven to 350 and place it on a tray of hot water. Lower the temperature to 300 degrees after first 5 minutes and let it set for 45 minutes. It should be firm but wobbly. Shut the oven and keep it inside for a good hour to cool down and set properly. Remove, cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.
Over turn on a platter and serve cold with berries.


This can also be made in a 10" pan.

A little jiggle in the center when cooking time is over ensures the flan will not be overbaked.
