Flan and Candied Raspberries Holiday Dessert

At our home. It’s not a Holiday unless we have Flan Pudding.  This is a very traditional recipe that Vo-Vo loves to makes.  She is so good at it…that honestly no one can make it quite as good as her.

If you have never had Flan, you have no idea what you are missing.  It is so creamy and smooth and delish….oh, and carmel sauce that goes on top…You just have to try it!

Our Holidays wouldn’t be complete without it.  I have a feeling when you try it…it will be a Holiday Favorite in your Home too!


  • 8 Eggs
  • 1 14 oz can Condensed Milk
  • 2 Cups of Milk (2% or whole milk) Or if you do like Vo-Vo, just fill 2 cans full
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 Tablespoons Water
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
Optional: 6 oz Raspberries & 1/2 Cup of granulated sugar

Mix Eggs, both milks and vanilla on low until well blended.

Pour sugar and water in the bottom of a bundt pan.  Place pan on the stove and wait for sugar to bubble and turn a golden brown.

Swirl the liquid sugar around the sides of the pan until all sides are covered.

Let sugar cool for 5 minutes.  Add the Egg mixture to the Bundt Pan.

Place a large shallow pot filled half way with water on the stove and bring water to a boil.

Lower heat to medium-low  and place bundt pan in the pot and cover.

Let Flan cook on stove for approximately 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out dry.

Let cool completely and invert into a serving dish with a lip.

If adding Raspberries, lightly dampen with water and roll in the sugar.  Place on a baking rack and broil for 5 minutes.

Sprinkle on top of the Flan.

I love my Eat Smart Precision pro Kitchen Scale it is the only way I can translate Portuguese measurements. Can’t live without it!

    Sounds delicious; we just made the regular panna cotta and it was very good but I know I like flan better; I’ll have to try this.

    Raspberries are my favorite fruit. I bet candied makes them even better 🙂

    Here is the Puerto Rican version of flan:
    1. 12 eggs
    2. 2 cans evaporated milk
    3. 2 cups of milk
    4. 1 1/2 cups sugar
    5. 4 Tsp of vanilla
    6. 1/2 Tsp of salt
    7. 1 cup of sugar to make the caramel (quantity depends on the baking pan)

    Preheat oven at 350 degrees
    Mix ingredients 1-6 and blend well.
    Heat on low on stove #7 until sugar is golden in color, pour into your baking dish of choice.
    (This will fit in a 9×13 baking dish)
    Pour milk mixture into the baking dish.
    Place in double boiler (Baño María) and bake for 1 hour or until done!
