    Ingredients ; 1 cup and 1/2 cup sugar

    6 large eggs

    1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk

    2 13 oz cans evaporated milk

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Recipe ;

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees. You will need 6 ramekins or other specialty flan cook ware and a large baking pan to put them in.

    Pour 1 cup sugar in warm pan over medium heat. Constantly stir sugar until is browns and becomes caramel. Quickly pour approximately 2-3 tablespoons of caramel in each ramekin, tilting it to swirl the caramel around the sides. Reheat caramel if it starts to harden.

    In a mixer or with a whisk, blend the eggs together. Mix in the milks then slowly mix in the 1/2 cup of sugar, then the vanilla. Blend smooth after each ingredient is added.

    Try searching more on the internet if this doesnt work!

    But i have the website on where i got it, and i also have a mexican cookbook, and i've made it before and it worked fine? If you have more questions, ( incase your confused about how to make it ) feel free to ask!

    Pour custard into caramel lined ramekins. Place ramekins in a large glass or ceramic baking dish and fill with about 1-2 inches of hot water. Bake for 45 minutes in the water bath and check with a knife just to the side of the center. If knife comes out clean, it's ready.

    Remove and let cool. Let each ramekin cool in refrigerator for 1 hour. Invert each ramekin onto a small plate, the caramel sauce will flow over the custard.

    I have a great easy recipe

    1 cup skim milk

    1 cup low fat evaporated milk

    4 eggs

    1/4 cup sugar

    1tsp vanilla

    mix above ingredients

    in a non stick fry pan add 1/4 cup sugar - cook until melted and browned - do not stir - just let it melt

    pour this sugar into a 9" cake pan - you do not need to spread it out - just leave it alone - pour in your egg and milk mixture - place into a hot water bath - bake in 350 preheated oven for 30-35 minutes - remove cake pan and let it set until cooled - run knife around edges , place serving dish over your pan and invert onto you serving dish - This recipe turns out lovely every time. Be sure your serving dish has a lip as the carmelized sugar runs over the flan and on your dish also.
