If you been reading this blog for a while now, you know that I love Flan and why not. Flan desserts are so delicious, extremely satisfying and beyond versatile. Yes, you read that correctly. All you have to do is add or substitute a few ingredients one way or another and you have a completely new dessert every time. But be honest, the one thing I don’t like about making flan is hauling the heavy baking dish and placing it in my oven. You see, when making flan, you have to bake your custard in a bain-Marie. Well, since I am loving my new Instant Pot so much, I decided to make one of my favorite variations of this delicious dessert and today I want to share my Instant Pot Caramel Flan recipe and step-by-step video below.
Instant Pot Caramel Flan Recipe
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 4 Large eggs
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 14 oz. can of Sweetened condensed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- a pin of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of water for your Instant Pot
- In a saucepan, over medium to high heat cook and stir sugar until melted and caramel-colored, around 10 to 15 minutes.
- Carefully, pour sugar into a round oven-safe dish, tilting to coat bottom and around the walls of the container. Set container aside.
- In a medium bowl, beat eggs, milk, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, and salt. Pour mixture into prepared caramel baking dish and then cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.
- Pour water into the inner pot of your Instant Pot. Place the flan custard baking dish on the Instant Pot's steam rack and carefully place them inside the inner pot.
- Now, put the lid on and turn the Steam Release to sealing.
- Then, press the "MANUAL" button and +/- to 5 minutes.
- Once the Instant Pot is done, let it "Natural Release" for 10 minutes, then vent the rest of the steam completely before opening the lid.
- Carefully remove flan custard baking dish from your Instant Pot. The flan is done when you insert a knife or a toothpick in the center of your flan and it comes out clean.
- Cool completely for several hours or overnight. Unmold the flan by inserting a spatula along the sides of the baking dish, invert on serving plate and enjoy!
