I thought this was great! I did as the previous person suggested and made a caramel for the bottom of the dishes...other than that I followed the recipe. My husband really liked it and I will definitely make again. I did end up baking the custards for a lot longer than 45 minutes, but I kept checking. I probably ended up baking them an extra 30 minutes.

This was really good. Mine is still hot cause I just pulled it out of the oven and I had to try a bite! I used only the vanilla extract,4 whole eggs and all white sugar(did not have brown) I made this all in one cassarole dish inside of another filled with water. I really like flan so I made some carmel with sugar and butter on the stove and then poured it into the botom of the pan before I added the egg mixture. Oh and I made with fat free milk. Will make again!
