      Yum Yum Yummmy! I have made this twice and taken it to work. Everyone just adored it!!!! Here are a couple tips I've found when prparing this recipe. I don't have a food processor so I used my blender and it worked just as well. Cool carmelized sugar before adding egg mixture. I used 9" cake pan and placed it on a cookie sheet. Place the pan on the cookie sheet before you pour in egg mixture. Then place the 2 pans in the oven. Once pans in the oven add the water to the cookie sheet. This helps prevents possible water spills during transport. To check for doneness place a knife in the flan and if it comes out fairly clean it is done.

      I'm not a flan eater, but my husband, who has always enjoyed flan, says this is the best flan he has ever had. The recipe was easy to follow, and I made it exactly as directed. I had no idea how to clean the caramelized sugar from my skillet, as it seemed permanently fused on, but I found that boiling some water in the skillet causes the sugar to easily dissolve.

      I no longer need to drive across town to find my favorite flan because this is better than any I have tasted anywhere! Who would guess that a dessert this wonderful could be so easy to prepare. The only thing that is a little tricky in caramelizing the sugar. Don't let it get away from you or it will get hard. That is the only thing that requires attention and a little experimentation to get it right.
