Easy Dulce de Leche Flan

Versión en español

Chilean flan, known as “flan Casero” or simply “flan,” is a beloved dessert in Chile and many other Latin American countries. It is a creamy and smooth caramel custard dessert that is simple but incredibly satisfying.

Easy Dulce de Leche Flan
It brings so many happy memories from my aunt’s place, where fruits were never an acceptable dessert… (old times).
What I love about this dessert is that I usually have all the ingredients at home (milk, eggs, dulce de leche, and sugar), so if I have guests for dinner, I can do it in the morning, and it’ll be perfectly cold at night. Ready to be enjoyed!

Dulce de Leche cans are available in Walmart (Latin foods aisle), Safeway supermarkets, and most Latino grocery stores. The cans are made in Chile. Argentinian dulce de leche has a different flavor but can also be used in this recipe.

Chilean desserts are known for their sweetness and indulgent flavors, and they play an essential role in Chilean cuisine and culture. Each region of Chile may have its unique twist on these classic desserts, showcasing the country’s diverse culinary heritage.

Leche asada de manjar

In the central regions of Chile, during summer, when the fruit is abundant and delicious, many everyday meals end with Fruta Picada, an effortless all-fresh Fruit Salad. In winter, most Chilean desserts transition to milk-based: Arroz con leche, leche asada, flan, leche Nevada, Sémola con leche, and Manjarate in later years are popular and enjoyed.
