    GoldsmithLissa's Note:

    I've made this recipe very spicy and flavourful to my tastes. Tinker around with adjustments to the spices to your liking, though I recommend leaving equal if not more ginger than cinnamon and then lessening cloves and allspice to your taste (reduce allspice before you reduce cloves for a better balance). Also, you can lighly spray cooking oil into the cake pan before you add the caramel (perhaps more on the sides than the bottom, because caramel will make it slippery on bottom). This will help you as you are trying to separate flan from pan with a spatula when cooked.
