    C. Taylor's Note:

    This is so good and so easy. I found this recipe after my husband started getting nostalgic about his years spent in Northern Spain. He absolutely loves it when I make it and thinks it's very close to what he would get in Spain. It comes together quick since you barely need to measure anything.

      PERFECTION! I feel for nmiars who last reviewed, on the carmelizing part. It requires full attention and constant stirring to achieve success. If you can get that done, the rest is easy! Rich and delicious, a great way to end this Cinco de Mayo. Next time I will try the "lite" milks and see how it compares.

      I followed the recipe exactly as posted. Like another reviewer, I also missed the plate when flipping and part of it got smashed...oops! It didn't look as pretty as I wanted but it tasted wonderful =)

      I had high hopes for a Easy flan...alas, this one did not fit the bill for us. The caramel part was a epic fail as the sugar needs to dissolve in sugar first in order to help it caramelize. If you add water after (and only a few table spoons you will end up with seizing sugar).
