  • 1 8 ounces package cream cheese softened
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 ounces
  • 1 can evaporated milk 12 ounces
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a heavy saucepan, cook and stir sugar over medium-low heat until melted and golden, about 15 minutes.
  • Quickly pour into an ungreased 2-qt. round baking or souffle dish, tilting to coat the bottom; let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Pour over caramelized sugar.

  • Pour boiling water into larger pan to a depth of 1 in. Bake at 350° for 50-60 minutes or until center is just set (mixture will jiggle).
  • Remove dish from a larger pan to a wire rack; cool for 1 hour.
  • Refrigerate overnight.
  • To unmold, run a knife around edges and invert onto a large rimmed serving platter.
  • Cut into wedges or spoon onto dessert plates; spoon sauce over each serving.
