Expert Tips

To remove flan from the baking pan, put in a lukewarm water container for a few minutes, which helps melt the caramel and allows the flan to come out easily.

Flan is one of my favorite desserts to prepare and eat. It's rich and versatile because it allows us to play with ingredients, adapt them to our tastes, and to the seasons of the year. Plus, it’s quick and easy to make. You can even prepare it ahead of time (which is ideal for a party) and the majority of people love it. Even though my favorite flan is the traditional vanilla one, I love making it with different fruits and flavors like coconut, mango, chocolate, guava and many more. This time I made a honeydew melon flavored flan, and it turned out fresh and light with a delectable soft, creamy texture. You can use a large baking pan for the flan, and then serve individual portions of it, but if you have individual baking pans, use them; although they take up more space in the fridge, the presentation is better. ¡Buen provecho!

Directions

  • 1 Mix 1/2 cup water and 1 cup of sugar in a small pan; let it boil on high heat to prepare the caramel. Boil without stirring until melted sugar starts to turn golden-brown, approximately between 7 to 9 minutes.
  • 2 Remove caramel from heat and quickly distribute in the baking pans for the flan, carefully.
  • 3 Mix melon with the remaining two tablespoons sugar in a small pan at low heat, and cook for approximately 5 to 8 minutes. Let cool completely.
  • 4 Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • 5 In blender, add melon, eggs, condensed milk and evaporated milk. Blend until everything is mixed well.
  • 6 Fill the baking pans with the mix. Bake the flans in a double boiler, (make sure the water reaches half the height of the baking pan) until they settle, approximately 45 minutes.
  • 7 Let flan cool and place in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
