Oh my.....YUM!!!! I've always enjoyed flan but have been worried that it was too difficult to make. This recipe proved me wrong. Easy to follow AND delicious! I did substitute non-fat milk for whole milk as that is what we drink. Absolutely wonderful, creamy and addicting. I had all I could do not to have seconds. Thank you so much for posting!
I've made this several times now and it is always delicious. Easy to make too. I think I'll make some right now...
Another thign I add is lemon zest. Grate it really finely and mix it in, and grate some bigger pieces for garnish. It gives it a nice flavour, and makes it look even tastier!
I used a pie plate and put 5 Tablespoons of sugar in the custard. I'll use a higher-sided pie pan next time. I baked it for an hour and it was really wobbly (like a cake totally shouldn't be), so I put it in for 10 more minutes. It was still really wobbly and I put it back, set the timer for 10 more minutes, and then decided I'd better check it with the knife. It was done! (Did I mention I've never made anything like this before? lol) I really enjoyed it, which is good because the kids weren't interested in it. (Gotta give 12yo credit for trying it.) More for me!

Used a 9" round pan and this worked perfectly. I love Flan and have since I was a little tot. If I had know it was this easy to make, I'd weigh like over 400 lbs by now. :-) Thank goodness I know better now and will only make it like very OTHER day. :-p Made for ZWT4 - Fancy Feinschmeckers.
So Tasty And I Found It Really Simple To Make Aswell
