This simple, yet delicious Mexican flan is creamy and delicate, and has lots and lots of caramel flavor without being overly sweet. Rather than making several individual flans in ramekins, we decided to go big with a large 9’ pie pan. It may look intimidating, but it’s very easy to cut, cook, and serve as long as you follow the right guidelines. Use a 9” metal pie plate to prepare this: It will turn out a beautiful sloped edge flan that will look so pretty as well fit nicely in a glass 9 x 13 baking dish for the water bath. We recommend putting the filled pie pan in the baking dish first, then carefully adding water in from the side before placing the baking dish on top on a sheet pan. This helps prevent water from getting in the pan and makes removing the finished flan from the oven much easier. Everything will be hot, so just proceed slowly and carefully. You can also create a water by by placing baking dish/flan in the oven and pouring the water into the baking dish with it already in the oven. This helps minimizes the chances of water sloshing into the flan when moving it. This is an impressive dessert that would make a perfect ending to a dinner party or taco night. Serve with a nice cup of strong coffee or an after dinner liqueur.
