    PaulaG's Note:

    Flan is always a welcome sight. This recipe does require for the flans to chill overnight and that is not reflected in preparation. The actual prep time is minimal for the filling and caramel sauce. Recipe was developed for RSC Winter 2005.

      Very good and interesting flan which we enjoyed. I wasn't sure of the cooking temperature so I used 350 for an hour, but I think it should have been a bit lower temp - still delicious though and we ate every drop. I really liked being able to mix the custard mixture in the blender - it made it so easy! By the way I was able to get 5 custards/flans (not sure what size my ramkins are though) which was perfect for us - some for dessert and two extras for snacks. Thanks for sharing!
