In a tall, narrow container mix together with a hand blender the soft cheese, cream, eggs, salt and pepper. Grease the ramekins (aluminium or rubber) and sprinkle over the breadcrumbs so they stick to the butter. Pour the liquid mixture into the ramekins, place them in a baking tray and fill the bottom of the tray with water: this will help keep the flans moist and not burn their lower parts. Bake the cheese flans in the oven for 1 hour and 45 minutes at 100 °C and then the last 15 minutes at 120 °C. Let them cool for twenty minutes and the flans will be ready!
