Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 50 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: 6 portions

This specific recipe is a mixture of 3 recipes. Flan , Cheesecake and Cream Caramel.

Ingredients for Caramel Flan

  • 285ml sour cream
  • Peel of one orange
  • 85g sugar
  • 20ml orange liqueur
  • 200g cream cheese
  • 4 eggs

Ingredients For Caramel Syrup

  • 140g sugar
  • 30ml water
  • 20gr glucose syrup
  • 10ml orang liqueur

Caramel FLAN CREAM instructions

  1. Place the sour cream and the orange peel at low heat and let the mixture boil. Remove from the heat and let the sour cream absorb the orange aroma.
  2. In a big bowl beat with cooking mixer the cream cheese with the sugar. Add eggs one by one and at the end empty 20ml of liqueur. Keep beating for 2 more minutes.
  3. Strain the sour cream from the orange peel and add it into the previous bowl and keep beating with mixer. Remove any foam with spoon.
  4. Pour the above mixture into baking forms on the caramel sirup we previously added in.
  5. We need to do bain marie method in oven, so fill the oven tray with water and place the forms. Make sure water level doesn't cover the forms. Bake caramel cream at 150C for 40 min. Once ready, let the Caramel Flan get cold for 1 hour at least.
  6. Once it is cooled enough, turn the forms upside down and enjoy the Flan. ( you also can place the flan on a biscuit base. The recipe is shown below).

Caramel Syrup

  1. Add sugar, glucose syrup and water into the pot and place it on the heat.
  2. When the mixture stars boiling, low the heat and keep stirring. The syrup will change the color and will become thicker. Once it is thick enough remove from the heat and add liqueur. Beat the syrup for a last time with the whisk.
  3. Empty the syrup into small baking forms.


Biscuit base ingredients

  • 250g biscuits Digestive type
  • 100g salt free soft butter

Instructions to make biscuit Base for Flan

  1. With the help of multi-mixer make biscuit crumbs and add the soft butter, keep stirring for a few min.
  2. Place the mixture on the baking paper and cover it with another piece of baking paper. Pressure the biscuits well until the base is about 2cm thick. Remove the upper baking paper and cut the base at same diameter as the small baking forms we used for the flan. Once base is ready, upside down the form with prepared Flan and place in refrigeration for few hours.

Enjoy with Family and Friends

      This is actually non traditional and unusual combination of 2 recipes; Flan and Cheesecake, that's why there are so many ingredients included into this recipe. Generally it is easy to prepare and the result is rewarding :) You will

      Thank you for stepping by :)

      This photo is absolutely scrumptious ! Mm.. I never imagined there were so many ingredients like sour cream in flan. I of course never made one either. I get one about once a month at my favorite buffet!

      I love flans. I usually partner this with strong tea or black coffee. I have cooked a flan once in one of our Christmas parties, but I couldn't get the perfect texture -- blame it on the gut feel. I will follow your instructions, and hope I'd be successful this time. :)

      I like your profile as well... all those yummy foods! Have to follow you now. :)
