Colonel Custard, in the Kitchen, with a Knife! Make Addictive Banana and Cajeta Flan

banana and cajeta flanbanana and cajeta flanFlan. That's a word my whole family loves to hear. It's usually followed with "Did you say flan?" I sure did. It is not only limited to my family, everyone I know goes a little bonkers over flan, especially me. I don't know if it's the creamy sweet softness that drives me nuts or the idea that flan is so versatile and lends itself to many flavors. The base of the recipe always stays the same; a can of evaporated milk, a can of sweetened condensed milk, a few eggs, and I like to add cream cheese to mine for and extra creamy texture. What you add on top of it is what makes each flan different. I have made many different types, everything from choco-flan (flan cake), to coconut flan, to pumpkin flan, and now banana cajeta flan. See the recipe below!

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

2. Lightly spray a bundt pan with non-stick baking spray.

3. Fill the bottom of the pan with cajeta. As you pour it in, circle your hand around the inside of the pan to evenly distribute the cajeta.

4. In a blender add bananas, eggs, vanilla, cream cheese, evaporated milk, and sweetened condensed milk. Place the lid on the blender and blend on high for 3 minutes or until all ingredients are fully incorporated.

5. Slowly pour the flan mixture into the bundt pan over the cajeta.

6. Cover the top of the bundt pan with a piece of aluminum foil.

7. In a large baking dish fill halfway to the middle with HOT boiling water, creating a bain marie. Then place the covered bundt pan in the middle of the baking dish.

8. Place the baking dish into the oven.

9. Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.

10. Carefully remove the baking dish from oven, and set on a safe stable surface. Then remove the bundt pan from the middle of the baking dish and set to the side. Discard the water from the inside of the baking dish.

11. Remove the aluminum foil from the top of the bundt pan and allow flan to cool for one hour. 12. Then place a plate on top of the flan and invert flan onto the plate by flipping the pan over and onto the plate.

13. Leave the flan on the plate covered with the bundt pan and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

14. Remove bundt pan and cut. Enjoy!
