Flan de Queso with a Crunchy Honey Roasted Caramelized Base Recipe – Latina on a Mission

Updated: Oct 11, 2021

If you’re looking for a sweet taste of Puerto Rico, you must master the flan de queso or cream cheese flan. It is perfect for gatherings, with a cup of espresso or as a sweet treat after a meal. It is also a must-have during the holidays.

Our original recipe does not include the roasted caramelized base. I adapted the recipe because my youngest son did not like the smooth texture of the flan on its own. Adding the crunchy base allowed him to enjoy it as much as we did. To make it without the crunchy base, skip step 6 below.

For a Puerto Rican, a slice of flan de queso evokes a multitude of memories. It is the memory of Mamá/grandmother, Mami, and all the Titis/Aunties preparing the holiday fiesta/feast. It is the joy of playing with the primos/cousins and opening gifts on Christmas Eve. It is a taste of heaven and sweetness and love. It is our Ratatouille moment.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
