Easy Flan

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Susan 2

Here's a simple recipe that my mom's used for years. She picked it up somewhere in South America (either in Peru or Brazil). It's fast, easy and very tasty. The cinnamon makes all the difference. Using a tube pan makes it bake more evenly and more quickly and makes for a prettier presentation.

This is a great recipe, and it's great that it's based around whole cans of milk, instead of leaving you with partials. I make mine with 7 eggs, and I go a bit heavier on the vanilla and cinnamon. A tip! Don't try to flip your flan onto a plate. Instead, put your plate upside down on your baking vessel and flip both together, give the vessel a jiggle, and it should pop out exactly where you want it.
