Happy 1 Year B-day to Ecualombian!! Oh, and Apple Flan (Flan de Manzana)

So a year ago from today I started this blog! I want Ecualombian to have many many birthdays ahead! I hope you all have enjoyed the ride because there is more to come. And now, the recipe I present with you today. Apple Flan, in which I dedicate it to Ecualombian. This recipe is simple, delicious, and a great way to use em’ apples. Make this for dessert on any occasion.

Makes for 6 Servings (Ramekins)


  • 4 Apples (Any you like or have on hand), cored, peeled, & quartered
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Condensed Milk
  • 1/2 Cup White Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Lemon, juiced


In a medium-sized pot add in the apples, water,lemon juice, and lemons. Cook covered on medium-low heat for 12-15 minutes or until fork tender. Once tender turn heat off, remove and discard the lemons. Drain apples through a sieve or colander, push down with a spoon to remove excess liquids from the apples. Set aside to cool.

Have your 6 ramekins ready by spraying in PAM or buttered, set aside. Add the sugar in a small skillet. Bring heat up to medium-high and let the sugar caramelize. Make sure not to stir it with anything, use a swirling motion of the pan to mix it together. Once the sugar has a caramel color, evenly pour it in the bottom of the ramekins.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Farenheit

In a food processor or blender, add in the cooked apples and puree. Then add in the eggs and condensed milk, puree till smooth. Pour this mixture evenly in each ramekin. Then add in the ramekins in a 9×13 in. baking pan. Make a bane-mare, add water in the pan half way of ramekins (not pouring any in the ramekins). Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour.

Once finish baking let the flans sit for 15-20 minutes, letting it cool. Serve either room temperature or cold. Enjoy!!

    Happy Birthday Ecuacolombian. I hope that you have many more. I am a recent reader of your blog Sherlly, and have found some interesting things to try, including this apple flan, and I tried arepas for the first time last weekend, but used grated fresh cheddar cheese curds in place of the ricotta, and they were really good and tasty. Thanks to you and your Grandma too. I have to get some ricotta and try that too. I wondered, would you eat arepas with any sauce or hot sauce on them if you weren’t eating anything else with them?

      Aw thank you!! Well, these arepa’s can’t really be served with any sauce. They go really well with tomato based sauces (not italian style) but like the sauce I share on my recipe that is served with the Green Plantain Pancake and yeah hot sauce would go good with these arepas. The other arepa’s like frozen sold in supermarkets (very thin ones), since they don’t really have flavor can be served with any sauce. Hope this helps! Take care.
