I'll give this recipe two stars only because it wasn't the worst thing I've ever tasted. It looked easy so I thought I'd give it a try for a small dinner party. It took me two tries to make the melted sugar layer, by finally taking the advise of another reviewer who suggested putting the baking pan in the oven for a few minutes so that the sugar doesn't harden as soon as it touches the pan. That worked much better. Then I followed the directions exactly. The next day I unmolded the flan and it looked gorgeous, but everyone who tasted it said it was too heavy or too much like cheesecake and the day after that it seemed even more thick and dense. Next time I will stick with a different recipe that is more like traditional flan, lighter and more custard like. If the name of the recipe was "Cheesecake Flan", then it would make more sense to me.
