If you've ever had flan, then you know it's a Mexican custard dripping with delicious caramel that bakes right in the same pan for a decadent delicious dessert. This is the easiest recipe for flan I have ever made. I have tried it with coconut, banana and now blueberry. It never fails me. Check out my super simple easy instructions on how to make this delicious Blueberry Flan.
Blueberries make this flan irresistible!
Just when I thought I made the best flan with bananas last year, this blueberry became our new favorite. How versatile making flan is. A delicious baked Mexican custard, that's great with or without fruit added. For me it's the perfect ending to a large meal because it really is so light. The look of it reminds me of cheesecake but it fools you.
When you cut into it, the jiggly consistency is smooth creamy sweet and like nothing else I ever had. It really is so simple to make, anyone that is afraid to try it, don't be this is easy peasy!

Don't buy flan it's so easy to make homemade!
The first flan I ever made was a banana caramel, oh my it was spectacular! Seriously made us all a fan. My son said to me, "mom that looks hard to make". I showed him how easy it was and he couldn't believe it.
We will never buy another one now. It comes together so quickly. These instructions will show you how easy this Blueberry Flan is to make. Don't let it scare you like it scared me long ago. Seriously. The time it took is so worth it. The hardest part is waiting for the caramel to cook.
The caramel continues to deepen as it cooks in the pan to make this marvelous caramel syrup. The flan slides out of the pan so easy, so don't worry! It won't stick.
I had so many apprehensions when I first made it thinking this is just too complicated. I saw packaged flan in the store but had no idea what to do with it. I don't even use a flan pan. I used a 9 inch round pan that worked like a charm. This is my third flan now.
It's really necessary to have an electric beater of some kind. The eggs need to be whipped for at least 10 minutes. Make sure you have a timer on for this and when you are making the caramel. The timer is the perfect tool to making your flan perfect.
I do use just a touch of oil spray in the pan. You don't have too, but my paranoia on sticking always come through using caramel, I do it regardless. Then I add the blueberries in the pan.
The secret to making the caramel it simple, it takes time. It must boil until it turns amber in color. That takes at least a good 20 to 25 minutes. Golden amber in color it the key. The rest happens in the oven. You have have a little patience and wait for this to turn the right color.
I really wanted to make sure you saw how beautiful it looks to serve when it's cut. I do pour caramel over the top of each slice, the syrup it makes the flan decadent for sure.
I was so excited on how beautiful it came out I forgot to add it for the photo! You can see how much it makes in the full flan photos above.
Drizzle the caramel before serving. My family really enjoyed my blueberry version. This flan didn't last long with only four people next time I will make two. I was thrilled everyone had a second piece. Blueberry Flan was a huge hit!
Hope your family loves it as much as we do. I am trying raspberry next since it's my personal favorite! Even my granddaughter Talia, ate a whole slice by herself!
