DIRECTIONS

  • Sprinkle sugar in a heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until sugar melts and turns light brown.
  • Remove from heat. QUICKLY pour hot caramel into a 9" round cakepan, tilting to coat bottom; set pan aside. (Caramel will harden and crack).
  • Combine eggs and remaining 7 ingredients in a large food processor or blender. Process just until smooth, stopping once to scrape down sides.
  • Pour custard mixture over the caramel syrup in cake pan.
  • Place cakepan in a large shallow pan. Cover cakepan with aluminum foil.
  • Add hot water to shallow pan to depth of 1".
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes or until knife inserted off center comes out clean. (Center should still be slightly liquid; flan will finish cooking as it cools).
  • Remove cakepan from water bath; cool flan completely on a wire rack (while still in cakepan).
  • Cover and chill for several hours or overnight. Loosen edges of flan with a spatula and invert flan onto a rimmed serving plate, letting caramel sauce drizzle over the top.
