Clásico Coffee Flan

At my house, there always is a jar of instant café in the freezer, which I use especially for making heavenly Coffee Flan.

It is easy. Just dissolve café granules into the flan’s liquid ingredients, making it a most glorious café con leche color, going darker or lighter depending on mood and just whom will be consuming it. Mine rarely is the same color twice.

Just for you, the folks at Nescafé have offered up a real easy and delicious Flan de Café recipe.

Note: After the recipes, read about a Nescafé Clásico coffee gift basket giveaway and the chance to win dinner and a private dance lesson with Javier “Poty” Castillo, director of choreography for the dance show, Mira Quien Baila. Poty, Spain’s most popular choreographer, is touring the U.S. with Nescafé’s  ”Celebra Nuestro Ritmo” campaign, inspiring dance, fun and good health.

First, the Flan de Café recipe!

Estimated Times:
Preparation Time: 15 mins
Cooking Time: 1 hr 5 mins
Cooling Time: 4 hrs refrigerating

Servings: 8


  • 1 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 325° F.

Heat sugar in small, heavy-duty saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, for 5 to 7 minutes or until dissolved and caramel-colored. Quickly pour onto bottom of 9-inch deep pie dish; swirl around bottom and side to coat.

Place sweetened condensed milk, eggs, evaporated milk and coffee granules in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

Pour into prepared dish; cover with foil. Place dish in large roasting pan; fill roasting pan with water to about 1-inch depth.

Bake for 55- to 65-minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Remove flan from water. Cool on wire rack.

Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

To serve, run small spatula around edge of pan. Invert serving plate over dish. Turn over; shake gently to release.

Serve topped with whipped cream and fruit.
