The Husband sort of had a craving for Flan this weekend, so I made it yesterday for our dessert today. It was super easy to make, yet it produced a very tasty and creamy dessert! No major appliances needed for this one, just a couple ingredients, that you probably already have on hand, and you got yourself a delectable end for any meal!
I would say that the hardest part of this is making the caramel, and being fast (and careful) enough to divide it up into the ramekins before it starts to set. After that it is just mixing and pouring, popping into the oven and waiting for it to chill (which sometimes is also hard, huh?!).

Very yummy, creamy but also very light, we liked it and I already got requests to repeat this one!


½ sugar
3 eggs
2 cups milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
½ cup sugar (or more, to taste)

In a sauce pan heat the ½ cup sugar until it caramelizes. Divide it into 6 individual ramekins (or custard cups).
Mix the rest of ingredients in a bowl with a whisk. Divide mixture into prepared ramekins.
Put ramekins into a big baking dish, add water to the baking dish and bake the custards in a water bath at 325 for about 45 minutes. Let it cool, chill in the refrigerator. To serve, run a knife around the edge of the cup and invert onto a plate. Yum!
