  • 3/4 cup White sugar, divided
  • 2 tsp Water
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 12 oz. can evaporated milk
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla extract



  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, heat 1/2 cup sugar and water until golden brown in color. Carefully swirl pan occasionally while it is heating. Pour hot syrup into a 9 inch round glass pie or baking dish, turning the dish to evenly coat the bottom and sides. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Beat in condensed milk, evaporated milk, remaining 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla until smooth. You want a smooth mixture, if there are a lot of bubbles, pour it through a strainer over the caramel. If not just pour egg mixture into baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil.
  • Place pan in larger baking dish and add boiling water carefully into bottom dish. Bake in preheated oven 45-60 minutes. Let cool in water for one hour. Refrigerate for at least two hours. To serve, carefully invert onto serving plate and allow the caramel sauce to flow down the edges.
