I am a little torn in writing this review. After reading the other reviews, I set my oven timer to 25 minutes. I think other people have much larger custard dishes than I do, because at 25 minutes, they were DEFINITELY overbaked. Overall, I enjoyed these, but I"m mad that I didn't follow the initial suggestion of 20 minutes. Also, my caramel hardened too quickly to coat the sides of the custard dishes.
This was really good. Silky and smooth. Easy to make. I cooked them the time you put in the directions and they turned out fine. I used Amarula coffee liquour instead of Kahlua. I used 1 cup heavy cream and 1 cup milk for the half and half. I'll definatly make this again. Instead of caramel in the bottoms, I think raspberry juice(strained from frozen raspberries) and sugar caramelized would be nice. Thanks Looney, for a delicious recipe.
Very good. I agree about the cooking time. It took between 45 - 50 minutes to cook. I made it for Cinco De Mayo.
it is verry delightful, creamy and just great i recommended
This was EXCELLENT!! I did make a few changes.....my kids don't like Kahlua anything..so I used Creme de Cocoa instead. And in my never-ending quest to cut sugars, I used Splenda in the custard, but still used sugar in the carmel sauce. Also, the cooking time is off. I needed to cook it for 45 minues, which after reviewing other flan recipes on here, I see a pretty common cooking time.
