Let's Make It
HEAT oven to 350°F.
Cook sugar in “flanera” until a light caramel color. Make sure not to overcook since the sugar could become bitter. Tilt pan to evenly cover bottom and 1-inch up the side with syrup; cool. The sugar will get firm and this will convert back into syrup during the cooking process so don’t worry.
Then proceed preparing the custard. In a blender add milks, cream cheese, mamey puree, vanilla and eggs. Pour the custard mixture over the caramel. Place the lid of the flanera and seal.
Place the flanera in a larger pan; add enough hot water to larger pan to come halfway up side of small pan (about 2 cups). Bake 45 minutes to an hour.
Refrigerate before serving.
To serve run a thin metal knife around edge of flan. Place a plate on top of the flanera and turn upside down. The flan will pop out and the syrup will run. Add few slices of mamey, sprinkle with cinnamon powder and add a cinnamon stick for presentation.
If you don’t have a “flanera” – cook the sugar in small saucepan on medium heat until melted and light golden brown, stirring constantly. Pour into 9x2-inch round pan; tilt pan to evenly cover bottom with syrup. Then proceed with recipe as indicated covering pan with aluminum foil before placing in water bath.
