This is true, authentic-tasting flan. Just follow as is. Some reviewers suggested baking flan with yellow or chocolate cake batter on top... well, here's another suggestion: make 1/2 the flan recipe (use 2 eggs) in an 8" round, and make the cake (I prefer the yellow) in 8" rounds too. Poke lots of holes in one of the cake layers (still in pan), and mix the remaining 1/2 cans sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk with 3/4 cup whole milk, and pour over the cake you've pierced. Now you have a quick, easy tres leches! (Save or freeze the other cake layer for something else.) Put both the flan and tres leches in the fridge for several hours... overnight, if possible. Once stable enough to handle, assemble the tres leches on top of the flan on a serving plate. Frost with sweetened whipped heavy cream, if you like. I love it without any frosting! Absolutely heavenly!!!
