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

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.

- Ruth Minsk-Whitehead from OCALA, FL


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!

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.
