I still remember the very exact day I learn how to make this flan. I was in my grandma's house. I can even smell the beautiful vanilla in the air. She showed me step by step, with all the patience she always had. Those where wonderful days. I loved to spend time in her house just talking about silly things, sharing my crazy and endless teenage stories. I liked so much to make her laugh. Her laugh is so beautiful and contagious. But time passed. I moved to another country and sometimes I miss so much those days. Thankfully I learn this recipe from her and every time I make it is like be straight to my grandma's kitchen. Only good memories comes to my mind.

This is why today I want share the recipe with you. So people can create their own memories around a good piece of this delicious cheese flan. Is simple to make and everyone is going to love it.

2 cups of sugar

6 eggs

2 cans of evaporated milk

1 can of condensed milk

2 cream cheese

1 tbsp of vanilla

  2. Melt the sugar in a small pot until forming a golden caramel.
  3. Pour the caramel in the mold until it covers the bottom completely.
  4. In a big bowl, mix the evaporated milk, the condensed milk, the eggs and the vanilla.
  5. Put half of the mixture recently made with a cream cheese in the blender and beat at medium speed until forming a uniform mixture without clots. Repeat the process with the second half of the mixture and the cream cheese remaining, then incorporate both mixtures.
