Absolutely wonderful! I tried to make them the other day, but couldn't get the sugar to melt. Tried for 20 minutes. Then last night used a different pan and it was done in 5. Very easy after that, but you have to swirl the sugar quickly in the ramekins! Texture was smooth, taste was great - will definitely be making often. Thanks Paula!! Made for Aus NZ Swap 37

I made this recipe last night & had a couple of problems. Firstly I assume that '3/4 granulated sugar' meant 3/4 of a US cup. Secondly, I don't understand how it's a 'flan' without any sort of biscuit base. I found that the caramel stuck to the custard cups like superglue. Next time I would put a biscuit base in the cups first, so that the sugar wasn't sitting directly on the ceramic. A nice custard, and the caramel gave it a lovely flavour, but this recipe needs a bit of tinkering!

Very good flan. I cooked mine in a large dish instead of individual ramekins and had to cook it for an hour - probably because it was fairly deep. I used a food processor for the custard - just dumped the ingredients in and turned it on, then poured on top of the caramel. This came together very quickly and easily - thanks for the great recipe!

Very good flan but I had to cook mine an extra 20 minutes. This may be because I'm at high altitude. Otherwise, very good.

OMGosh! Tried this recipe yesterday for my in-laws and they L-O-V-E-D it! It was DELICIOUS and actually very easy to make! We're all Mexican-American so we all grew up with flan but we haven't had any since my hsuband's Abuelita passed away 7 years ago so my Mother-in-law was SO thrilled that I made it for them. It is now going to be my dish to bring every year for the family. It was a HUGE hit! :)

My sister-in-law is from Mexico and after having this for dessert, she left with the recipe in hand. We didn't even wait the suggested 2 hours as no one could control them selves. This is a nice flan recipe because it uses ingredients I always have on hand. Thank you Paula! Made for Family Picks, ZWT 4.

Great recipe, although I added a bit of rum to get rid of the eggy flavor.

This was delicious! It wasn't too thick, just the way I like it! It was gone 15 minutes after it came out of the oven. I baked it in one large casserole dish, so cooked it a little longer. Thanks Paula!
