Flan de Queso con Huevo

This unusual flan de queso con huevo recipe is really tasty. If you prefer desserts, which are not too sweet, you will like the cream cheese, walnuts, and orange zest in this recipe. A touch of vanilla is added to give the flan an authentic flavor. There are many different recetas de flan casero con queso to choose from but this one is especially good because it is simple and the flavors are so well balanced. The orange adds fruitiness and the cheese and walnuts go together very nicely.

If you are looking for a slightly more unusual flan recipe, then this one is always a hit. You can make some extra syrup, if you like, to toss the walnuts in before adding them to the flan. This step is up to you and you can just arrange the walnut halves on the finished flans if you prefer. Either way is good. Feel free to use individual custard cups rather than one big mold, if you want to.

This is one of the most mouthwatering recipes if you are looking for “flan de queso con leche condensada” or condensed milk flan, as you would call it in English. Condensed milk features in a lot of flan recipes, but not all of them, and evaporated milk is another popular ingredient, along with regular milk. Of course, flan would not be flan without the addition of eggs and sugar to make the delicious caramel topping.

This recipe has a few more ingredients than other, more basic, flans, but it is still very simple to prepare if you take a look at the preparation steps. The first thing you will need to do is make the caramel by melting the sugar, and then you can combine the other ingredients to make the actual flan. The walnut halves finish the flan off perfectly and, as you can imagine, the orange flavor goes beautifully with the nutty taste, and the cream cheese makes the consistency creamier.

It is true this recipe might have taken a step away from the classic recipe but if you are looking for a brand new twist on this classic dessert, try this and see what adding cream cheese, orange and walnuts to the recipe does for it. I bet you will be very pleased with the result!
