Pumpkin-Vanilla Flan



I have been craving this for a long time and while I have madeflan from scratch so many times (I have the caramel burns to prove it), I just don't have the free-time to do so.

When I saw this little recipe, I knew I wanted to give it a try. It couldn't be easier to throw together and the texture and taste are just perfect.

This got five-stars from the hubby andI will be making these again very soon. I can't wait until you give it a try...let me know how it goes.


Place four 6 ounce custard cups or ramekins on a tray.Divide contents of caramel sauce packet into ramekins.


Add 1 cup pumpkin pie mix and 1 cup vanilla creamer to flan mix in a saucepan, stirring to make smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a full bubbling boil. Remove from heat and slowly pour into prepared heatproof dishes. Mixture will thicken as it cools.


Refrigerate at least 1 hour. To unmold, loosen edges of flan from mold with tip of knife. Top with plate; invert plate. Remove mold.

    I love flan, but pumpkin flan sounds heavenly. I like that it comes together so easily and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients.

  5. Boxes to the rescue! Great recipe for a quick and beautiful presentation. I also have a great caramel burn on my hand from making flan. The pot dripped one drop as I was carrying it to the sink and my toddler got under me right were the drop was going to fall. I put my hand out over his head and it hit me on the back of my hand. Close one!! A fantastic third degree burn but baby was safe! Battle scars!

    I think you’re wonderful. I am a 21 year old student and hope that when I have a family, I’m as interesting and creative as you are.
