Cream cheese flan recipes seem to all call for a blender: you just put all the ingredients (possibly minus the evaporated milk) into the blender, kind of willy-nilly, and whizz it up.
Problem is, I don't own a blender. Obviously, wildly throwing together all the ingredients ain't gonna work in a mixer. But what will? For reference, the ingredients I'm working with are 1 package cream cheese, 5 eggs, 1 can sweetened condensed milk, 1 can evaporated milk, and vanilla.
- I know (from experience) that the cream cheese must be fully softened — otherwise you end up with a curdled mess.
- Should I beat the eggs separately?
- What order should I mix things in? If this were cheesecake, I'd cream the cheese and sugar, but here the sugar is already dissolved in the condensed milk.
