I made this as per the recipe and it turned out great. We had a family dinner for Mother's Day and it was a BIG HIT. Two things I will do next time: have custard cups ready and I might try the blender trick that another reviewer mentioned (put the batter in a blender as a last step before baking). I used my stand mixer and it turned out fine, but I thought it looked a little "grainy." I don't have a 10" round dish so I used an 8" Pyrex round dish, like for apple pie, and I had batter leftover. I quickly caramelized more sugar and put it and the batter into a couple of individual pyrex custard cups and baked as recipe instructs with water in the pan (no cloth though). Those worked great too. I heated my baking dishes in the microwave before putting the sugar in since it does harden quickly. But of course, as you bake it the sugar evens out anyway. It turned out perfectly with only a coating of sugar left in the baking dish but there was plenty on the flan so I didn't care. I served it with fresh sweetened strawberries and homemade whipped cream. Wonderful recipe! Thanks Jo!
