Heart-Shaped Flan for Someone You Love

Here is my recipe for this flan. When plating, it was so beautiful and silky that I had to find a special garnish for it. Great for St. Valentines Day or Mother’s Day or Father’s Day!


1 – 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 – 12 oz can evaporated milk
14 oz whole milk
8 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
pomegranate for garnish – optional
sprig of mint for garnish – optional


Preheat oven to 350ºF.


In a small pan, (teflon coated) add a cup of sugar and heat until it begins to dissolve. Shake the pan slightly (do not stir) until all the sugar has melted. Increase the flame and let the sugar bubble and color. Pour the caramel into the mold and quickly turn it around in all directions to coat mold.


Beat all the above ingredients well. Use a strainer when ready to pour into caramel prepared mold. Place mold into large pan and fill with hot water (bain-Marie) cook for about 45 minutes or until you insert a toothpick into the flan and it comes out clean.

Now take a bite…
