Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total time: 1 hour 15 minutes


  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 package cream cheese
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extra.


  1. First, preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius or 355 Fahrenheit.
  2. Heat sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat until golden brown. Pour the caramel into a 10-inch baking dish, and tilt until it’s evenly coated with the liquid. Set aside.
  3. Using a large bowl, beat cream cheese until it becomes smooth. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, until it is properly mixed. Repeat the process for the milk. Now, pour into the coated pan. Place the pan on a wet towel placed in a larger roasting pan. Fill the outer roasting pan with water.
  4. Using a preheat oven, bake for 50 - 60 minutes until it’s properly done. Let it cool and chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours. To remove, use a knife to separate the pan from the flan, and invert on a platter.
