  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 8oz package cream cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • tbsp Adams Extract Vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Place the 1 cup sugar and 2 Tbsp water in a saucepan and bring to a boil until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat and stir until syrup becomes a light caramel color.
  • Pour into baking pan, and spread evenly across the bottom.
  • Blend the remainder of ingredients until smooth in a blender.
  • Pour mixture into baking pan and cover with aluminum foil. Set pan in a larger baking pan and add warm water to about 3/4 inch.
  • Bake for about 60 minutes or until flan appears firm. (Flan will continue to cook after removing from oven)
  • Let Cool. Run a knife around edge of pan. Place serving plate over flan baking dish and invert quickly.



  • I have also made this flan without the sugar topping with great success. It cuts the sugar a bit.
  • It’s very important to preheat your oven for this recipe.
