This classic flan only has five ingredients and is out of this world. I remember the first time I had flan. I was 10 years old and my family was visiting my great aunt. She treated us all to dinner and ordered the flan for everyone for dessert. It was magical. Flan has been one of my favorite desserts ever since then, and it always makes me think of her. Extraordinary flavor comes from extraordinary cows. Plus with growing little boys, I like that Promised Land Dairy Milk is higher in protein and calcium than ordinary milk. And again, I like buying milk from animals that are treated humanely. Back to the flan.... I already had my eggs, but needed the other ingredients. You know I love to save money. So, I headed to Target to use the Ibotta deal to earn $0.75 cash back with any purchase of any variety of Promised Land Dairy Milk products 32oz. or larger.
Thanks to the creaminess of the Promised Land Dairy Milk, this was one of the best flans that I've had. I also picked up the Promised Land Dairy Reduced Fat 2% milk and the boys are loving it. I'm pretty impressed and can't wait to try some of the other flavors.

Classic Whole Milk Flan
- 2 cups Promised Land Homogenized Milk
- 1 cup + 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 whole egg
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup water
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
- In a heavy bottomed pan over high heat, add the 1/4 cup sugar and water.
- Allow to cook undisturbed until caramelized and brown in color (about 5 minutes)
- Divide the caramelized sugar between 4 ramekins.
- Add the remaining sugar, eggs, and vanilla to a bowl and whisk well.
- Meanwhile, heat the milk over medium heat just until bubbles start to form - do not boil.
- Add a little bit of the hot milk to the sugar egg mixture while continuously whisking.
- Add the remaining milk while continuing to whisk.
- Divide the milk mixture between the four ramekins.
- Place the ramekins into a baking dish and add boiling water for a water bath.
- Bake for roughly 60 minutes or until the flan is set - the centers should be only slightly jiggly.
- Remove the ramekins from the water bath and allow to cool on a wire rack.
- Once cool, chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight.
- To serve, run a knife around the edge of the flan and flip onto a serving dish.
