Ingredients

Instructions

Place the bottom of a flan double boiler on the stove.  Add enough water to the pan so it just reaches the bottom of the flan mold insert.  Turn heat on to medium-high.

Combine flan ingredients in a blender, don't blend yet. 

Add sugar to the bottom of your flan mold and heat over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until the sugar browns. Do not leave this unattended, sugar can ignite quickly. Once the sugar liquefies, tilt the pan so the caramel covers about 1" up the sides of the pan.

Turn on the blender, blend the ingredients and pour into the flan pan.  The water in the double boiler should be simmering by now, if not turn it up a bit.

Put the flan on top of the water pan of your double boiler. Cover with the lid and maintain a simmer about one hour.  Avoid opening the lid while the flan is cooking. To test the flan, insert a thin knife blade into the flan.  It is done when only small clumps of flan adhere to the knife. Set the flan aside to to cool on a rack.  Once the flan has cooled for a few minutes, refrigerate the flan till it is cooled completely.

To remove the flan from the mold use a thin knife and cut around the edge of the flan mold. Place plate on top of the mold, then turn the plate upright. The flan will release onto the plate.
