      This is a GREAT recipe. WOW when I made this for my family and it was the hit. I've been giving this as a gift for a couple of years. You must add water to the sugar while melting it or it will dry hard and stick to the bottom of your flan pan. A 1/2 a cup should do. This is such a simple recipe, you'll love it. I use a blender and mix everything in seconds. The only problem is the waiting for the flan to cool down after baking. Who wants to wait till the next day to eat it after smelling it bake for an hour plus.
