Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made it over the weekend. Made it over the weekend. It was very good and rich, even though I used reduced fat cream cheese and 2% evaporated milk. I also made it in 6 souffle cups which helps on portion control. I also recommend beforee serving placing the container in a shallow hot bath for a minute because I could not get the flan out of the pan without getting it warm first. It also takes a lot more time than 10 mins prep time but worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband and I LOVED this flan. My husband and I LOVED this flan. It has a very smooth and rich taste. The recipe was so quick and easy. I inverted it onto a plate after it had cooled for about 90 min. and then put it in the fridge. There was plenty of carmel sauce that dripped down the sides. I discarded the sauce that had stuck to the pan and it wasn't needed. I will make it for the holidays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I love it! I found though, that it has better depth if you use 3 squares bittersweet and 1 square semisweet chocolate. I also have a bad habit of overcooking which makes it dry so I aim for a shorter cook time. Also, I find its too hard to unmold if I let it cool overnight. I wait until its cool enough to handle - about half an hour- and unmold onto a plate

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This was a very good good recipe. This was a very good good recipe. It was a little intensive to make, and shouldn't be tried unless you are good at making cheesecakes. If the cream chesse isn't well softened and blended until smooth, you'll end up with a lumpy result. The Flan was very dense and not too sweet. I rally enjoyed the sauce over the final product. I will make this again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I was disappointed. I was disappointed. I followed the instructions and ended up with something like a cheesecake that was stuck to the bottom of a pan with a hard caramel candy at the bottom. It did not unmold. I have made very difficult desserts and dishes, so I was very disappointed with something that was supposed to be easy. Apparently something went wrong somewhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from i've made it twice, and the first time i tried to improvise on the timing (big mistake). i've made it twice, and the first time i tried to improvise on the timing (big mistake). however, the second time it was fabulous, easy and a big hit--and i agree, it tastes like coffee! but contrary to what others said, my came out decidedly flan-ish in consistency. smooth and wobbly rather than creamy (which is great because i hate cheesecake!)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Taste was really good, reminded of a cheesecake. Taste was really good, reminded of a cheesecake. Putting all the ingredients together didn't take too long except the sugar did take a while to melt. When it was finally ready to eat I took it out of the pan and noticed that some of sugar stuck to the pan. Nevertheless I will make this again and hope that it comes out better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was by far the easiest dessert I have ever put together! This was by far the easiest dessert I have ever put together! It actually looked like the photo in the end! You have do include the chocolate swirl pieces on top to complete it! Everybody loved it! I can't wait to make it again to blow everyone away! The flavors were perfect and it was much easier than a traditional flan.
