Hazelnut Flan

I found this dessert recipe in the local newspaper instalment. They are doing a collection from differents restaurants in the region. This one is a creation from Catalín restaurant. It's super easy to make and so good it's almost a sin... I guess you can replace hazelnuts for any other nut, sure we'll try it!

Hazelnut Flan:

Nueva España (local paper) instalment


  • 200 gr. whole milk
  • 4 eggs (big)
  • 225 ml. sweetened condensed milk
  • 150 gr. grounded rosted hazelnut
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar and water to caramelize the baking pan
  1. Beat the eggs and add as you stir, milk, condensed milk and grounded hazelnuts. Set aside.
  2. Make caramel. Put water and sugar in the baking pan over the stove, about 5 min. Don't stir. When the caramel is golden, shake the pan so the walls are covered with caramel. Let set.
  3. Pour carefully your milk-halzelnut in the pan. Bake in a water bath at 130º C for one hour.
  4. Serve room temperature.
