Super EASY! and SUPER GOOOOOOD!!!

I did everything as sujested...only thing l changed to cut callories was just butter the bottom of the pan instead of the sugar. When l flipped it over l spread some white sugar and burn it at the moment it went on the table...kind of had a crunchy caramel...and wasnt sooo fatening. Just love it..PS next time l will soak some plain cookies in coffee and liquer (sweet) and put it on top before going into the oven and just flip it over and do the top part of this comment. loved it!

This was my first flan and I was a little nervouse. I did not have a 2 qt casserole dish so I used a 1.5 qt and it still turned out perfect. It definately took me longer to caramalize the sugar but you just have to be patient, eventually it will happen and when it does be sure to IMMEDIATELY pour it in the dish. My husband loved it! This is a recipe I will continue to make over and over again, thank you for posting!

I made this Flan on Christmas of 09. It was just as good as the Flan I ate in Costa Rica. I'll be making it again this Easter Sunday. I found this recipe to be the Best!!

Wow is the only word for this dessert! I served it at a recent dinner and it was definitely the star! It came out of the dish beautifully and tastes like a creamy version of the traditional flan. Thanks for posting.

Sinfully delicious, according to the hubster (who doesn't like desserts). Note that I had to make the caramelized sugar twice. When I prepared it according to the instructions, the sugar crystalized and had to be tossed. I started again, added water to dissolve the sugar, boiled without stirring until it was caramelized, then proceeded with the recipe. It was my first attempt at flan, and it couldn't possibly have been easier!

We loved this flan! I even ate it for breakfast! Served with a little whipped cream on top this is the ideal dessert when you don't want something really filling but want something sweet!

I made this flan last evening, just like the recipe read. And boy was I pleased. I sprayed casserole dish first and had no problem with removal. The Whole Recipe is EASY!!! I will definitely be adding this to my regular line-up! Thank you Barb for adding it to the Zaar!

This was a huge hit at my 11 yo dd's Girl Scout event. We are not bakers, and it turned out beautiful and delicious. My can of evaporated milk was 12 ounces, and my can of sweetened condensed milk was 14 ounces which is opposite the recipe. I'll mention that mine cooked for 1 hour and 20 minutes as the recipe says, since others set much faster than that. I will DEFINITELY be making this again. It is so good and so easy (it just doesn't LOOK like it would be easy.) ;)
