pudim de leite brazilian flan


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 (14oz) cans sweet condensed milk
  • 28oz whole milk (use the sweet condensed milk can to measure)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract



Step 1 – Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Step 2 – In a sauce pan, melt the sugar over medium high heat. After about 10 minutes, once it’s golden brown, add the water and let it cook, stirring lightly, until it thickens a bit.

Step 3 – Pour the caramel into a 10 inch Angel Food Pan and swirl it to cover the bottom and sides. Let it sit for a few minutes so it hardens. It is important that the caramel firms before you add the flan mixture so they don’t mix together.

Step 4 – Add the sweet condensed milk, milk, eggs and vanilla extract to a large blender jar. Blend for a few minutes until smooth.

Step 5 – Pour the flan mixture into the angel food pan and cover with foil.

Step 6 – Fill a large baking pan halfway through with water and place the angel food pan in it.

Step 7 – Bring it to the oven and bake it in water bath for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Step 8 – Let the flan cool and transfer it to the fridge to cool overnight.

Step 9 – To remove the flan from the mold, just run a knife along the sides and then carefully flip it on a serving plate.
