Una pregunta, podria cambiar la textura si uso solamente una de condensed milk? Como o con que la sustituiria? La tradicilnal receta que uso es 1 de carnation 1 condensada i queso 3 eggs, mas le de usted se ve super creamy n delicious yummy, 😉😊 mi pregunta es x lo dulce? Gxs bendiciones


La receta sulla resultaría en un Flan de queso tradicional. Esta receta es para un Flan de “Cheesecake.” (Una combinación de un Cheesecake Norteamericano y un Flan de queso.) La textura y dulzura cambiará si usás sólo una lata. Si vas a usa la receta sulla, Le daría el consejo de cocinar el Flan por menos tiempo en el InstantPot- 15 minutos en ves de 25 minutos. Muchísimas gracias por su pregunta. ¡Buen Provecho!


Thank you so much. I can’t wait to try your cheesecake flan.


Your recipes and blog are very easy, thorough, and fool proof.


Awwwe thank you so much! So glad you enjoy it.

I learned from my Cuban MIL. I can sweetened condensed milk 1 can of milk (same can) Vanilla 5 egg yolks Mix everything and strain out the eggy bits. Put water and sugar into a clean coffee can and melt on the stove until you get a dark caramel. Run the hot caramel around the sides of the can to coat it, then let it cool. Once the can is cool, add strains egg mixture. Cover with foil and secure with a strong rubber band. Place in pressure cooker with water half way up the can. Bring to pressure and… Read more »


I love this! That’s very much like my great grandmother’s flan. But using a coffee can sound very much like a Cuban idea.

Hello. This is Renee Rebel. Last week, on Facebook, I contacted you about making a Cuban flan in the IP. You replied that you would be posting the recipe this week. Is this the recipe to which you were referring? It sounds delicious but my Cuban flan calls for evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk; therefore, it would have more liquid than your recipe with the cream cheese. What would be the timings for a flan which uses more liquid? Also, I made your Cuban bread pudding and it was incredible! I wanted to let you know that I made… Read more »


Hi! Actually I’ll be posting a more traditional flan next week that is more like what you are talking about. The timing is 15 mins for a regular flan. I’m so glad you liked the bread pudding. I think using croissants is brilliant!


If I wanted to make half the recipe in a 6 inch pan would i alter the cooking time? It’s just for two people. Thank you.


Hmmm good question. You are only diminishing the size of the pan by an inch but having the recipe so it will be thinner. I might try 15 mins instead of 25 which is the time for a regular flan. When is done see if its 180 degrees in the middle. If not put it back in for another 3 mins.


This was amazing! I missed your comment on not using a spring form pan, luckily mine still worked out! I look forward to the more traditional one .


Oh im so glad it worked out! I think I fiest have a cheaper spring form so the kater seeped right out, lol. Ii’ll be posting my abuela’s traditional flan soon.

What is the size of your Instant Pot and flan pan? I only see 7″ flan pan in amazon.


I have a 6 Qt and the 7 inch pan fits perfectly. If you use the link in my blog it will take you to the exact size. Good luck!

you say 2 cans of sweetened milk, but you don’t say how many ounces. this is my 1st time making flan de queso


Good point! It’s the 2 of the 14 oz cans. Thanks for letting me know. I’m going to add that to the recipe.❤


Oh shoot… Ok, I’ve been dreaming of making this. Finally getting up the will power and courage to attempt it this weekend – but we have a huge Instant Pot (the 8-quart one). Do we change anything with regards to ingredient amounts or pan sizes?


Nope, not at all! You can use a slightly larger pan and maybe then add an extra 4 mins cooking time. But if you use the same size pan or a flanera, keep everything the same. Good luck. You got this! 👍😁


Oh.my.gosh. So I accidentally used 1 egg white instead of the yolk – c’est la vie. I’ll let you know what happens. This is what I get when I attempt something like cooking late in the day. LOL


Lol. I love you! Maybe you came up with a genius new thing?


Haha. You overestimate me. 🙂 But also I was wondering if you really have to leave an entire inch from the top of the pan. Sorry for the gazillion questions… It just seems a little short. Maybe there’s a deeper pan we can get?


You could probably push the inch to a half inch. You might have to add a few more minutes though since you have more batter.

Thank you!


I’m about to purchase a 7″ flan pan as it will be more versatile to use with other recipes. I have a 6qt IP. Is the cook time the same with a 7″ pan? I can’t wait to try this…thanks!


Thanks for the info! I think it will be a big hit in our house!


Does this work for an 8 quart instant pot?


Can I used a pressure cooker instead of the IP


I have a RIDICULOUS amount of filling leftover from this. More than half of the mixture. What the heck am I supposed to do with it?! Will it keep in the fridge? Do I make another flan tonight??


Is the 1/4 cup of milk on top of the 2 cans of condensed milk? Is the texture more cheesecake or more like flan? Hope to hear from you thank you


I made the caramel topping FIVE times! It still hasn’t come out right:( I tried 2 pans, 2 silicone spatulas, 2 different gas burners and a timer. Your video instructions are great and I follow them to the letter. What am I doing wrong?


I found out using sweet condensed milk is way too sweet, one time I just used 1 can, my daughter didn’t like it, way way too sweet she said. Prior to that I just use evaporated milk. Any substitute for condensed milk? Just sugar may be?
