Do you have an Instant Pot? If so, you’ve got to try this Instant Pot Flan! (And if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can just as easily cook the flan in the oven. Click here for instructions to cook in the oven.)
Also, if you love flan and plan to make it on the regular, I’d highly recommend getting a flanera. A flanera is a special pot for making flan. It’s the perfect size for this recipe, and has a lid that snaps on so the custard doesn’t leak out and water doesn’t leak in. Other than than the flanera and the Instant Pot, you’ll also need a blender. Once you have the equipment, the rest is easy and the result is delicious! But don’t just take my word for it 🙂

How much milk is needed? 1 1/4 cups is 10 oz but you said to use the same 14 oz condensed milk can. Please clarify. This looks like a great recipe. Thank you!
Hi Sasha! Thanks so much for your question! A 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk measures out to 1 1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk. The reason the measurement is off from the standard (14 ounces equals 1 3/4 cup) is because the sweetened condensed milk is so dense (due to added sugar) so that 14 ounces of it in weight takes up less space that 14 ounces of a plain liquid. So although the recipe is a bit confusing, it is accurate. If you use the sweetened-condensed milk can to measure the milk, it will measure out to 1 1/4 cup milk. Thanks again for your question and I hope you get to try the recipe! Very best, Marie
I want to make a rompope flan. Should I sub some of the milk for an equal amount of rompope?
Hi Lupe! That sounds like a wonderful idea! I’m wondering if maybe you could sub in the rompope for the sweetened condensed milk instead? Since both are sweet, that would probably be a better substitution. If I try it I’ll let you know! Please do the same for me 🙂 Big hugs, Marie
