Easy Flan Recipe, from Lisa

2/3 cup white sugar

1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk

2 cups whipping cream

1 cup milk

2 tsp vanilla

6 eggs

Pre-heat oven to 350 and place the large pie pan or medium casserole dish that will hold the flan in the oven to also pre-heat.

Melt sugar in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. The trick here is to resist the urge to stir; just spread it in the pan and keep an eye on it. As it begins to melt you can move it around a bit with a spatula but just let it mostly sit until it is a nice caramel brown color.

Immediately pour it into your hot casserole or pie dish and tilt the dish to coat the whole bottom and up the sides a bit. (The melted sugar will harden very fast.)

Process all other ingredients in a blender for one or two minutes until well mixed. Pour this mix into the pan over the caramel coating.

Bake for an hour in a water bath by placing the flan pan in a larger pan and adding about an inch of water to the larger pan. Cover the flan pan with a lid or foil so it does not get too browned on top.

Let the flan cool for a while then gently run a table knife around the edge to loosen it from the pan. Invert onto a larger platter that has a rim or sides to contain the caramel sauce. (Inverting is the scary part but just do it quickly over the sink with the platter in place on top of the flan pan and you should be fine!)
