Flan is a traditional dessert that my family makes every year around the holidays. It is a tradition to gather around the table and talk about all our wishes and dreams for the upcoming year and to reflect on the the blessings and sometimes hardships we endured together.
In Brasil, it is custom to celebrate Christmas on the 24th all the way through the 25th. We usually gather grandma and grandpa, aunts and uncles, cousins and family from near and far to laugh, celebrate and to eat together.
This year we will be making one of our favorite flan recipes – creamy coffee flan! I hope you make this with your loved ones and enjoy the sweet and creamy taste of this savory dessert.

Creamy Coffee Flan
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water (optional)
1 can of La Lechera sweetened condensed milk
1 can of Nestlé Carnation evaporated milk
4 Tsp. of Nescafé
10 egg yolks
Preheat oven to 400°F.
For the caramel sauce:
Place sugar and water into a medium sized saucepan. Let the sugar and water heat up on medium heat. As soon as the sugar starts to dissolve, gently mix it so the sugar doesn’t burn.
Once the sugar has dissolved, the sugar mix will turn into a dark caramel color. Remove from heat and carefully pour into a flan baking pan or 6 small baking dishes. Set aside.
In a small bowl, combine your Nescafé and a can of Nestlé Carnation evaporated milk. Mix together and put aside.
In another bowl, whisk together 10 egg yolks and then add a can of La Lechera sweetened condensed milk. Mix together.
Now combine all the ingredients together (Nescafé, evaporated milk, egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk). Mix together.
Pour the flan into your flan pan or baking dishes.
Take a casserole dish and place 2 inches of water in it. Now place your flan pan or baking dishes in the casserole dish.
This creates a water bath and the steam from the water is what cooks your flan!
Place your flan in the oven for 45 min. Take out the flan and insert a knife trough the middle. When the knife comes out clean your flan is perfect!
Let cool (we love to eat flan cold) and serve!
