Flan de Huevo (Egg Flan)

Hola! Jump to Recipe

Today I am making a very traditional recipe, egg flan. This flan can be found in virtually every  restaurant in Spain.

The flan is so popular that you can buy it in a box at Spanish supermarkets. The only thing you have to do is mix the box mixture with milk and voilà!  That is very easy and convenient, but of course, there is nothing like a homemade dessert. We have a lot of varieties of flan; egg, vanilla, coconut, coffee, etc.

This flan is very easy, you can make it in just 10 minutes,  then it will be in the oven for about 35 minutes and then you will have to wait until its cold.

 As a mold, you can use a large size, or you can use individual ramekins like I did. My ramekins are about a 1/4 cup.

Lets make a flan!

For the flan:

  • Strain the mixture into a bowl. (OPTIONAL: Use a hand blender to blend it up).
  • Pour the mixture into each ramekin (or into one big mold).
  • Fill half of a baking dish with water, add the ramekins and then place in the oven, being careful not to get any water in the flan.
  • Cook in the oven for approximately 35 to 40 minutes. The center should be firm, but soft, and not liquid.
  • Remove the ramekins from the baking dish.
  • Cool in the fridge, for at least 1 hour or overnight.

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes.
