Pumpkin Flan cake recipe



Preparing the Caramel:


1. In a saucepan, meld the granulated sugar and water over medium-high heat, delicately stirring until the sugar dissolves into the water's embrace.

2. Once the sugar dissolves, let the mixture bubble and transform into a luscious amber hue without further stirring, an alchemical process taking around 5-7 minutes. 


Creating the Flan:


1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C), setting the stage for the Flan's transformation.

2. In a harmonious blending, combine the pumpkin puree, sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, eggs, pure vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and a sprinkle of salt. Blend until all components embrace in a dance of seamless union.


Flan Assembly:


1. Assemble the caramel canvas: Pour the transformed caramel into a 9-inch round baking dish, tilting it gently to coat the base evenly. Set this canvas aside to cool and solidify, ready to cradle the velvety Flan.


2. Gently pour the blended pumpkin Flan mixture over the cooled caramel, creating a canvas upon a canvas, each layer adding depth to the dessert's masterpiece.


3. With gentle care, cover the baking dish with a protective veil of aluminum foil, preparing it for its oven-bound journey.


4. Embrace the Flan in a water bath: Nestle the covered dish in a larger baking pan, cradling it with warm water that bathes the dish halfway up its sides, ensuring a tender and even bake.


5. Allow the Flan to bloom: Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes until it achieves a tender, set texture while retaining a delicate jiggle at its center—a testament to its silken allure.


6. With reverence, extract the Pumpkin Flan from its fiery abode, allowing it to cool to room temperature, gently preparing it for its grand reveal.


7. The final flourish: Refrigerate the Flan for at least 4 hours, or, for the ultimate anticipation, let it luxuriate overnight, allowing its flavors to meld and its texture to attain celestial perfection.


This Pumpkin Flan is more than a dessert—it's an embodiment of elegance and flavor, a symphony of autumnal delights waiting to captivate your senses with each silken spoonful.
