Very Easy


Number of serving: 4
1 1/3 cup cubed fresh papaya

1 1/3 cup sweetened evaporated milk

2/3 cup whole milk

boiling water for bain-marie


  • Preheat the oven to 300F (150C). In a small, preferably non-stick, saucepan, heat the cubes of papaya over low heat, stirring constantly and mashing the fruit.
  • Cook until the flesh is slightly dried out and its juice evaporates. Do not let the fruit brown or burn. Reserve.
  • In a blender or food processor on low speed, combine the papaya, the evaporated milk and whole milk. Add the eggs, one at a time, blending constantly, until you have a homegenous mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into a glass or ceramic custard form (previously caramelized if desired).
  • Place the form in a bain-marie, fill the bain-marie with boiling water to the depth of the mixture in the form and put the bain-marie in the preheated oven.
  • Cook for approximately 1.5 to 2 hours, or until a toothpick inserted into the flan comes out dry and clean.
  • Remove from the oven, and remove the flan from the bain-marie. Allow to cool completely while at room temperature, then refrigerate if desired.
  • Serve at room temperature or chilled.
