This tasty recipe is also called “Flan Di Latte” in Italy, and “Flan de Leche” in Spain. It’s a super easy (and super tasty) pudding of milk and eggs.

That “Flan” is widespread in Spain, Sardinia (Italy), Argentina and Philippines.

You can add marmelades and fresh fruits (strawberries, blackbarries, etc) to enrich the dish.

an electric egg beater is also recommended 🙂


Step 1: Warm the Milk and Crack the Eggs

Crack 8 eggs into a plastic bowl and “add a spoon of sugar for every egg” (8 eggs = 8 spoons).

Step 2: Mix, Add the Milk and Keep Mixing

Mix very well for 10-15 minutes using the beater

Add the hot milk at this time, and keep mixing until the mixture looks VERY “foamy”.

Bake in the pre-heated ventilated oven at 180ºC (356ºF) for 30 minutes.

Step 6: Remove and Let Chill

Remove the desserts from the oven and let them chill to the open air for half an hour.

Then, put them into the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Step 7: The Flan Di Latte Is READY!

Keep the desserts in the fridge and remove it just when you want to eat it 🙂


it goes very well with any marmelade and fresh fruit.
