Orange Flan

Products Used
Orange Flan


  • 1 1/2 cups Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 5 eggs, room temperature
  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 12 ounces evaporated milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium saucepan add sugar and orange juice. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar melts and turns a light golden color. Approximately 15 minutes.
  3. Carefully divide sugar between two 9-inch pie plates. Carefully tilt pie plates to evenly coat bottom and sides of pie plates. Set aside.
  4. Combine eggs, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, salt, vanilla extract, and cream cheese in a blender and blend until completely smooth.
  5. Equally divide mixture between pie plates with caramelized sugar.
  6. Place each pie plate into a larger baking pan (a roasting pan works well). Pour hot water into empty pan around outside of pie plates to create a water bath.
  7. Bake for about 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Transfer flan to a wire rack to cool. Transfer to refrigerator to chill for a minimum of 4 hours.
  8. Prior to serving, run a knife around edge of dish. Invert dish onto serving plate.
  9. Garnish with fresh orange slices and mint if desired.
