    BecR's Note:

    This traditional Mexican style flan is a luxurious baked custard, with a hint of canela-Mexican cinnamon and a rich caramelized topping. A classic! Makes a lovely special dessert that is similar to a creme brulee---a great finale to your favorite Mexican meal! (Note: Requires overnight chilling). Courtesy Ladies Home Journal.
