Portuguese Port Flan

Portuguese Port Flan | Pudim de Vinho do Porto

I call this a Portuguese Port Flan, but in Portugal, we would call it Pudim de Vinho do Porto. I’m not sure this is originally a Portuguese recipe, but it might as well be, as I don’t know a single Portuguese person who hasn’t had a version of this flan. And if you’re attending a big party in Portugal, chances are you’ll find this flan amongst the desserts.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 cup eggs

  • 1 cup milk

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 1/3 cup Port

  • 1 and 1/3 cup sugar

  • 2/3 cup water


  • To a saucepan, add 1 and 1/3 cups of sugar and 2/3 of a cup of water. Let it melt and come to a boil and then boil for about 10 minutes until caramelized. Carefully pour the caramel into a flan mold (chose one with a lid) trying to cover as much of the sides of the mold as possible. You should do this carefully but quickly.
  • To a large pan, add enough water to cover about half your flan mold and let it come to a simmer.
  • In a large bowl, mix 1 cup of eggs, 1 cup of milk, 3/4 of a cup of sugar, and 1/3 of a cup of Port. Mix until combined. I use a stand mixer or a handheld mixer.
  • Pour the batter into the flan mold and cover with the lid.
  • Carefully place the flan mold onto the large pan, cover with a lid and let it cook on medium heat for about 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Check occasionally to make sure there’s still water in the pan.
  • Let it cool completely before transferring to a plate. Keep the flan in the fridge.
