Aracely's Flan
This flan is delicious and looks like the kind I order at the Restaurant. I tried many different recipes before I ran into this one, and I have to say the secret to getting that perfect taste and texture is using the egg yolks instead of the whole egg. I placed the filled casserole dish into a larger pan and put water halfway into that pan and baked in a pre-heated oven @350 for 1 hour. Cover the casserole that has the flan with foil paper while in the oven.I need to try to simmer in the stove like the recipes says, either way this is a very easy and wonderful recipe.
