Slow Cooker Mexican Custard Flan

  • Cooking Time:

    3 1/2 - 4 hours
  • Servings:



1 - 1/2 c. sugar, divided
1 tsp. of lemon juice
6 large eggs
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk, canned
3-1/4 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

Slow Cooker “Mexican Custard” (Flan) is one a delicious dessert you can serve with your favorite Mexican meal or anytime! It’s smooth and velvety texture is just delicious.

  1. Warm a pan over medium heat, and pour in 1 cup of sugar.
  2. Constantly stir sugar until it browns and becomes caramelized.
  3. Once desired color is reached, pour lemon juice over the sugar to stop it from browning.
  4. Quickly pour caramel into ramekins that will fit in your slow cooker. (tilt to swirl the caramel around the sides.)
  5. Whisk eggs in a bowl.
  6. Add in the milk, then slowly mix in the 1/2 c. sugar, and the vanilla. (Blend well after each ingredient is added.)
  7. Pour custard into the ramekins (over top caramel) that you placed in the Slow Cooker.
  8. Cover. Cook on High for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
  9. Check with a knife just to the side of the center. If knife comes out clean, the flan is ready.
  10. Remove and let cool for a few minutes then refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  11. Using a knife, cut around the edges of each ramekin and turn upside down on a plate (to remove custard.)
  12. Spoon any additional caramel sauce from ramekin over the custard and serve.

Happy Crocking!

Hi, I’m just a little confused on the recipe, it notes to add the caramelized sugar into a baking dish that fits in the crock pot . So do we put the baling fish inside the crockpot and then pour the mixing milk? So the crock pot will cook the baking dish with no liquid added? Please help Thanks

You don’t need the ramekins either. Pour caramel into crock pot add egg mixture and perfectly.

Why not cook it right in the crock pot. I wonder if anyone has tried it… I think I will try it right in the crock pot instead of a separate dish in the crock pot.

Did you try it straight in the crock pot? What happened? Was it successful?

Do you put the custard mixture in the baking dish or directly in the crock pot?
