Toasted Milk Flan de Queso

May 2, 2023 | By Jeremy Scheck | Leave a Comment

Flan is popular in Spain, Latin America and the Philippines. Toasted Milk Flan de Queso uses cream cheese to make it have the texture almost of cheesecake, and toasted milk powder to give it a brown butter flavor. Flan is gluten free.

Toasted Milk Flan de Queso


  • 1/2 cup dry milk powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 packages cream cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. In a dry pan set over medium-low heat, toast the dry milk powder until golden brown. It may take a 10-15 minutes depending on the heat. Just don't burn it, and don't worry if it clumps up a bit. Set it aside and clean the pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 350° F. Set a pot of water to a boil for the bain marie.
  3. Add the sugar and water to a pan, and cook 10-15 minutes until it has a dark amber color. Pour the hot sugar mixture into an ungreased 9" cake pan and spread over the bottom.
  4. Pureé the remaining ingredients, then pour into the cake pan over the sugar mixture.
  5. Place the cake pan inside a larger pan, then onto the oven rack. Before closing the door, add boiling water to the larger pan it's inside of, so it reaches about 3/4 up the sides of the pan.
  6. Cook 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Let cool at room temperature 30 minutes before covering and refrigerating at least 2 hours, or up to overnight.
  8. Run a knife around the edges before fllipping the flan and enjoying.
