Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup BochaSweet or allulose based sugar substitute (see note)
  • 1/4 teaspoon blackstrap molasses optional (for color and flavor)
  • 1 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup low carb sugar substitute erythritol based granular sweetener is fine
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • In small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup granular sweetener with blackstrap molasses on medium-low until melted. Once melted, stir to blend and quickly pour into the bottom of a 2-quart round baking dish or 9.5 inch deep dish pie pan. Let stand for about 10 minutes.
  • In medium saucepan, heat cream and water to a boil. Remove from heat.
  • In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, salt, and 1/3 cup granular sweetener. Stir 1 cup of warm cream mixture into egg mixture. Return all to pan and mix well. Stir in vanilla. Pour over the caramelized sweetener in the prepared pan.
  • Place baking dish in a larger baking pan. Fill larger pan with boiling water to a depth of about 1 inch.
  • Bake at 325°F for 55-60 minutes are until center is set (mixture should wiggle a bit). Remove baking dish with flan and set on a wire rack. Allow to cool for about an hour then place in refrigerator to chill completely. Run a knife along the edge of the baking dish to release the sides of the flan and invert onto a rimmed serving plate. Store in refrigerator.

Notes

When making the caramelized sugar topping, it's recommended to use a non-erythritol based sweetener. Otherwise, the top can crystallize after cooling. I recommend using BochaSweet or an allulose based sweetener blend that's a 1 for 1 sugar replacement.
