Top Review by Stovepipe

This recipe turned out just like the flan we used to buy at a Mexican supermarket. I like that it has fewer eggs than other flan recipes because I don't like eggy-tasting desserts. Refrigerating it for 24 hours, or at least overnight, for some reason seems to get rid of the eggy taste as well. The only thing I did differently was add a little water before carmelizing the sugar (it evaporates out anyway). I might try putting it in a water bath next time to give it a smoother texture.
