Brazilian desserts are famous for their creamy and rich texture. The Brazilian Style Flan (Pudim de Leite Condensado) is a perfect example of this. It has the smoothness of pudding with an extra layer of caramelized sugar on top, which makes it even more delicious! This flan recipe is easy to make, requires few ingredients, and
prep: 20 mins cook: 55 mins additional: 2 hrs total: 2 hrs 75 mins Servings: 8 Yield: 8 servings
¾ cup milk, plus
4 eggs, separated
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Melt the sugar in a heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Once the sugar becomes a golden brown syrup after about 10 minutes, pour it immediately into a round baking dish, swirling so that the syrup coats all sides of the dish. Set aside to cool.
Place the egg yolks into a blender and blend on medium for 5 minutes, then add condensed milk, 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk, and egg whites. Continue to blend until all ingredients are combined. Pour egg mixture into the baking dish and cover with aluminum foil. Line a roasting pan with a damp kitchen towel. Place baking dish on towel, inside roasting pan, and place roasting pan on oven rack. Fill roasting pan with boiling water to reach halfway up the sides of the baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. The center of the flan will still be soft. Allow flan to cool before unmolding onto a plate. Refrigerate before serving.
