Smooth, creamy, caramel goodness. I will keep this recipe for my go to flan recipe. It was so easy, too! You can taste the vanilla!


The first time I ever made flan. I made a double batch. A man came up to me who travels all over the world and eats at 5 star restaurants and has never tasted flan as good as that one.


We just had a Quatro de Mayo luncheon at work someone brought Flan made from this receipe. It was probably the best flan I''ve ever had.. and i frequently order it in Mexican restaurants.
