Easy Caramel Flan (Creme Caramel)

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by C. Taylor

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.

I am an 11 year old kid that tried the recipe...I would have given you a FIVE...EXCEPT for the fact that you did not include clear units visible beside the oven temperature. I almost burnt it because I used celcius. Even though it mentioned VERY briefly that they were in US units, I think it would be better if you made more clear. Thanks, A.
