I'm looking for an easy, delicious flan recipe that I can make with ingredients I already have on-hand. I don't have sweetened condensed milk, and most of the recipes I have seen use that ingredient. I do have evaporated canned milk.

http://www.thri  f317891.tip.html

has a number of different recipes for sweetened condensed milk.

Both Jello and Royal have a boxed flan that is very easy to make and very inexpensive and does not have to be baked like a custard. I actually do mine in the microwave. I prepare the custard cups with the caramel sauce they supply. Put the milk and the package into a large microwavable bowl, stir with a wisk and heat in the microwave stirring every minute...until it boils...have to watch...but it isn't very long. Then you pour the hot mixture onto the caramel sauce and let it set then refrigerate to cool. They unmold up-side-down onto a plate nicely and I sure them with Coolwhip.

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 4 squares semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, cubed
  • 4 eggs


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place 1 cup of the sugar in small heavy saucepan; cook on medium heat until sugar is deep golden brown, stirring constantly to create a caramel sauce. Pour into 9 inch round pan.

Place chocolate squares in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high 1 1/2 minutes or until chocolate is almost melted, stirring after each minutes; cool. Place milk and cream cheese in blender container; cover. Blend until smooth. Add remaining 1/2 cup sugar, eggs and melted chocolate; cover. Blend well. Pour over caramel sauce in pan.


Bake flan in water bath to ensure a gentle, even heat that will prevent curdling. To create water bath, set round pan holding the mixture inside a larger pan. Add water to larger pan, surrounding round pan about half way up the side.

Bake 1 hour or until knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. To unmold, run metal knife around edge of flan. Invert onto plate; shake lightly to loosen. Gently twist to remove pan. Add chocolate garnish, if desired. (Note: Caramel sauce on top will drizzle down sides).

Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar in a heavy saucepan; place over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly until sugar melts and syrup is light golden brown. Pour syrup into 6 custard cups; let cool. Combine milks in a medium saucepan, and heat until bubbles form around edge of pan.

What is in this recipe? I've searched the whole web and can't find anything remotely related to anything called "Flung." You've peeked my curiosity to say the least. lol

Are you sure that it's not Flan? I found a recipe for "Far Flung Flan." lol That is as close as I've gotten so far.

It simply must be Flan. Perhaps you think it's called Flung because someone came up with it as an inside joke name when a person didn't like it and Flung the Flan ;-) That's something I would do because I hate custards ;-) LOL!

Read this and then just Google flan recipes, caramel custard recipes or creme caramel recipes and there are oddles of them so just pick the one that suits you best: Let us know the outcome :-)

Don't know if this is what you are looking for, but is the one I use.

Leek and Cheese Flan

1 pie crust (1/2 package)

2 large leeks, washed and sliced thin

1/2 cup butter

3 large eggs

3 ounces milk

3 ounces sour cream

6 ounces cheddar cheese, grated

1 pinch salt

1 pinch ground nutmeg

1. Set oven to 400 degrees

2. Line a 9 inch pie pan (or flan tin) with pie crust.

3. Saute leeks until soft, season with black pepper and cool.

4. Whisk together the eggs, milk and sour cream. Add salt and then half the cheese and leeks to this mixture.

5. Pour into pie pan and sprinkle with rest of cheese. Grate nutmeg over, place on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes until brown.

Because our family is milk/cheese intolerant, any recipe with cheese might not work for us. However, at the natural foods market this week, their sample table included the best recipe you might also enjoy since you are searching for one with leeks:

Apple-sausage slices steamed with tomatoes and leeks galore. It was so very good that I plan to try this for us. I forget to BEGIN with onions, leeks, or garlic, which are SO good for us. I also forget that

cooked tomatoes might turn to mush if not watched, but that they, too, are VERY good for us and so easy to serve up. Good luck and God bless. : )
