You'll need

300 gm caster sugar 5 eggs 350 ml milk 350 ml pouring cream 800 gm sweetened condensed milk To serve: thickened cream, whipped


  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 120C. Cook sugar in a frying pan over high heat, swirling pan occasionally, until dark caramel (7-9 minutes) then, working quickly, pour caramel into six 2-cup baking dishes and leave to cool and set (15-20 minutes).
  • 02
  • Whisk eggs, milk, cream and 200gm condensed milk in a bowl to combine. Pour mixture into the moulds and place in a roasting pan, fill with hot water to come halfway up the sides of the moulds and bake until flans are set (40-50 minutes; they should have a slight wobble in the centre). Refrigerate flans until cooled and set (4 hours).
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, for dulce de leche, preheat oven to 220C. Pour remaining condensed milk into a 1.5-litre baking dish, cover with foil and place in a large roasting pan. Fill pan with water to halfway up the sides of moulds, then bake until milk is dark golden, topping up water as necessary (1½-1¾ hours). Remove from roasting pan and whisk dulce de leche until smooth. Fill a piping bag fitted with a 5mm nozzle and set aside until needed. Dulce de leche will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for up to a week.
  • 04
  • Run a knife around the edges of each flan and turn out onto serving plates, pipe dulce de leche on top and serve with whipped cream.
