    Barb Gertz's Note:

    Rich and Creamy Flan with a beautiful amber sauce makes for a striking presentation. If you like cheese cake you will love this. You can add a bit of Amaretto Liquor if you like, or serve with a little Kahlua Liquor and a dollop of whipped cream. This requires a standing time of 3 hours and 20 minutes before serving.

      I've been making this Flan recipe for a few years now, and it is always a hit w/ everyone that tries it. I have the prep time down to 10 minutes. Some changes I have made to the recipe that I have liked: Use (2) 8 oz packages of Cream Cheese, and (6) eggs, 11/4 teaspoons Vanilla. IMO this really firms up the texture of the flan, and the cream cheese flavor comes thru even more! I've been making it this way for awhile. Good Eating! PS - For carmelizing the sugar, which some have mentioned that they have issues. I start at about 70% heat, as soon as the sugar begins to form clumps, I then turn to 30%, and constantly stir after that. This carmelizes the sugar much faster. Just watch it closely so you don't scorch.

      Amazing! I'm Puerto Rican and this taste just like the cream cheese flan I'm used to. Since I'm watching my weight, i used fat milks and fat free cream cheese. I used half the amount of sugar required for the glaze. Once the sugar was caramelized and melted, I added equal amount of splenda and a little bit of water because the splenda made the glaze a little lumpy. I'm gonna follow it to the letter on the weekend :) Thanks!

      This was a very rich and creamy dessert. I think it's more like cheesecake. I had a little trouble getting it out of the casserole dish so I put the casserole in some warm water to help loosen it. It didn't take the whole cooking time to finish but that may be due to my oven and because the water in the pan I used was on the hot side instead of warm. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
