Cuban flan



  • Sugar – a cup and a half
  • 6 egg yolks and 3 egg whites
  • Milk – a couple of cups
  • Lemon peel
  • Cinnamon – a stick
  • Vanilla – 1 tsp
  • Salt – ¼ tsp
  • Water – ¼ cup


1) Make caramel first. Put sugar to saucepan and add two spoons of water. Mix it until sugar is all wet. Then put on stove on medium heat. The sugar is melting and becomes brown a little – yellowish. Stir it not to burn the mix.

2) Bring to a boil a mix of milk, cinnamon, lemon peel, salt. Cool the mixture a bit.

3) Beat the yolks, whites slightly. Add sugar and vanilla and make it mixed.

4) Pour the milk mixture now and put the egg mixture into the mold with caramel.

5) Put the mold into the baking dish with water. It should reach the half of the mold side wall.

You can cook it on the stove, in the oven or in the pressure cooker. If you do it on the stove, so it until the toothpick comes out dry of it. When Cuban flan is ready, turn it upside down and you will have a layer of beautiful caramel on top.
