  • 1 cup and 2 tablespoons of sugar divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 can of evaporated milk
  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 5 eggs
  • 4 oz of cream cheese softened and cubed
  • 3/4 or 1 cup of pumpkin puree
  • 1/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium pan, over medium heat, add one cup of sugar. Cook for a minute or until sugar begins to dissolve. Lower heat to low. Continue cooking for three minutes, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved and turns into a rich amber color. Quickly add in cinnamon, stir and remove from heat.
  3. Quickly, pour caramel into round 9-inch pan, being sure to swirl around to coat bottom and bottom sides completely. Allow to cool for ten minutes before adding in flan custard.
  4. In a blender, add in remaining ingredients. Blend well together.
  5. Gently add custard to caramel pan. Place pan in another pan for a water bath. Gently place in oven.
  6. Cook for 50-60 minutes, or until fork comes out clean. Remove pan from water bath, and allow to cool for 3-4 hours.
