I have made this flan twice so far, and I have gotten so many compliments! Thank you la lechera :)

It was very good and easy to bake. 1st time baking flan and easy. wow!!!!!

My Sicilian family loved this. It was like a taste of the Caribbean in our home. I made it at Christmas time and served along with our traditional desserts like cannoli and tortoni and it was STILL a favorite. Now, to Italian people that is major!....Tanti complimenti. Grazie La Lechera....Buonissimo!

This flan is awesome, my entire family loved it and it is so easy to prepare Thanks
