How to make it

  • Add the sugar to a medium heavy saucepan over medium low heat. When sugar starts to melt, stir gently and occasionally until it starts to turns light, clear brown; do not let it burn.
  • Be carefull at this point the sugar will be extremely hot! Use oven mits to pour the caramelized sugar into a ring mold/or pan. Swirl the sugar over the sides to completely cover the pan.
  • For the flan: Mix all of the ingredients with a blender or mixer. Mix until the ingredients are well incorporated but do not overmix as it will cause bubbles in your flan.
  • Pour mixture into the mold/pan. Put the mold/pan into a larger pan with water in it to make a 'bain marie'.
  • Carefully put this into the oven at 350 degrees for about 1 1/2 hours. Check with a toothpick in the center of the flan to make sure it is set up.
  • Carefully remove your pan from the oven as the water will be very hot.
  • Cool the flan for a few hours or better yet overnight in the refrigerator and invert into a serving plate that is large enough to accomodate the flan and some of the caramel.
