Being a Flan lover, I had to try this recipe. The instructions are not very clear. You should prepare the pan were you are going to bake the flan (caramelized) and in the blender mix the rest of the ingredients. Pour the mix over caramelized pan and bake. It took a litle more than one hour, but is is worth it. It is delicious!!!

I love mango pudding so i tried this recipe. I did not like the pudding at all! It was too sweet and the mango pudding didn't taste suggestion: if u want mango pudding...try the recipes that was some sort of gelatin for the setting of the pudding...those tend to be not so heavy and syruppy...

I make flan all the time. I've made all kinds but I had never made mango flan. I bought mango pulp that comes frozen (Goya brand carries many fruits this way) and it was about 1- 1/2 cups of fruit rather than 2 cups. Other than that, I followed the recipe for the flan including the rum. I do make my caramel differently. Over the years I've found that making it in the microwave in a Pyrex glass measuring cup is way easier. Add 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup water to the Pyrex dish and heat on high until it turns an amber color. Do not let it get too dark or it will taste burnt. This usually takes about 7-10 minutes. Pour that caramel in your pan and distribute it evenly in the bottom and sides of the pan. Do it fast as it will harden, but that's ok. I added all the flan ingredients in a blender and mixed them up there to create a smoother consistency. Then I poured the mix in the pan that had the caramel. I did the Bain Marie as indicated but had to bake longer than 45 minutes for it to set. It took about 60-70 minutes instead. Cool down, put in refrigerator and flip on to a platter when ready to serve. It looks gorgeous!!

This is a good Flan recipe. If you are looking for pudding, look elsewhere. It is a bummer that the person rated it low because they were expecting a pudding. Flan is more of a custard than a pudding. **Important note!! This (and all Flan) recipe is mediocre at best if served warm fresh out of the oven. Make sure you chill it at least one day in the fridge before serving, and you will have everyone asking for seconds. I switched the rum for Amaretto, and used key lime juice instead of lemon juice. Also, I used much less sugar for the caramel than it calls for, and it turned out great.

I tried this recipe because i wanted to try something different and i can honestly say it was DELICIOUS!!! and very easy to prepare. I baked it a few times now for other people and have heard anyone said they did not like it.. highly recommend it

Did not like it. My husband and I love mango, so I decided to give this a try. It didn't taste like mango at all to us. I would not make this dessert again.

My husband and I make this recipe and come out great, good flavor and consistency. But will taste much better if you make the mango puree with ripe mangoes. And real ones too, not those which came y cans with syrup because the flan will taste oversweet.

I didn't like this at all. I made the recipe exactly like stated, but it tasted powdery. Which i suppose came from the corn starch, which Ive never seen in flan before.
