This is my first attempt at Flan. I selected this recipe because I wanted to make something "authentic" for a mexican dinner. I think what I discovered is that I'm not a huge Flan-Fan. ;) The custard is somewhat bland and although smooth, was more "jello-like" than soft and creamy. The caramel glaze was thin and watery and also did not add much flavor. I have to admit that I have not had much flan in the past, but my guests who have said that mine turned out just about how flan is supposed to. It also looked just like the picture... although I'm starting to wonder if it wasn't overcooked? I left this in longer than called for because it seemed like it was not fully set. I realized later though that this was because the carmel itself was liquid, though the custard was cooked, which was what made it "wobble" when I tilted it. Another tip... must melt sugar on Medium-Low. Another reviewer said they put it on High and it melted really fast... I am sure they must have scorched it though, which I learned the hard way! :)
