Flowered Eggnog Flan combines milk, eggs, sugar and cinnamon to create a caramelized, velvety flan. Your guests will find the edible flowers an elegant touch.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk

PREHEAT oven to 350º F.
COMBINE sugar, water and nutmeg in medium, heavy-duty saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring constantly for 3 to 4 minutes until dissolved. Increase heat to medium-high; boil, without stirring, for about 15 minutes or until caramel colored. Quickly and very carefully (caramel is very hot) pour onto bottom of 6-cup round mold or 9-inch-round baking pan; swirl around bottom and sides to coat.
PLACE evaporated milk, sweetened condensed milk, cream cheese, eggs, rum and cinnamon in blender; cover. Blend until smooth. Pour mixture into caramelized mold. Place in large roasting pan; fill roasting pan with hot water to about 1-inch depth.
BAKE for 1 1/2 hours or until knife inserted near center comes out clean.
Remove flan from water. Cool on wire rack. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
TO SERVE: Run small spatula around edge of mold. Invert serving plate over mold. Turn over; shake gently to release. Caramelized sugar forms sauce. Garnish with raspberries and edible flowers.

Flowers and Eggnog
This is a wonderful recipe! My family loves it & my grandaughters enjoy helping make these wonderful desserts.
A cheese cake type flan
This is more like a cheese cake than a flan. I will stick to the vanilla flan recipe.
Flowered Eggnog Flan
I love flan and this was really good. Will definitely make it again.
MY OH MY!
This FLAN was DEVOURED in minutes. I mean literally every last bite "slurped" up as fast as in it was placed on plates. Using the cream cheese was a great addition. I never would have thought to use that in a Flan, but it was brilliant. The only edible flowers I had were nasturtums and they are somewhat peppery, so we used fresh berries instead. My oh my - this was GREAT!
search is over
My family loves flan. And they also love my holiday goodies. So I have searched several sites for a recipe to make a flan related to the holidays. And I have finaly found one. I haven't made the flan yet, but I know it will be delicious. I have a lot of faith in the brands of ingredients required.
best flan ever
Best flan ever, tastes great!
The Only Flan You Will Ever Need
This flan is very rich. Not too sweet. Perfect. I use a candy thermometer for caramel accuracy. I cook the caramel to 300 degrees for a beautiful color. One other thing I do is thicken the caramel a bit after the flan is cooked. Return the liquid to a saucepan & boil rapidly for about 3 minutes or so. Cool before pouring over the flan. This makes a nicer presentation.
