white sugar, divided
Definitely fast, but the end result was strange in texture. I think that the 100% power step needs to be changed to maybe 70% power or something. My flan was not smooth... it was sort of cottage cheese-like. I guess there are some things that you shouldn't try to shortcut. Or maybe it would work better with condensed milk? Evaporated milk? I'm not sure.
This was WAY too sweet. More like scrambled eggs with syrup with flan. I agree that the 100% power didn't work at all. Needs to be like 70% for double the time.
Sorry! I just thought it was way too sweet and I couldn't eat more than 2 bites, even ignoring the weird texture.
After reading the other reviews, I decided to try it in the conventional oven. The texture turned out as described by the other reviews (like bread crumbs soaked in syrup) it is way too sweet. My kids would not eat it. Don't do it.
Made it for my boyfriend since he is such a huge Flan fan, it started boiling in the first 3 minutes after the 100%, i let it continue thinking it would stop and solidify, but to no avail. Taste is not to my liking, never fully settled. The user definitely should have been WAY more specific in instructions, DO NOT MAKE!!!!
well, if your microwave was 1100 watts, like mine, it'd be cooked in the first four minutes at 50% power! The submitter should be more specific in the instructions!
The problem is, that none of you gave a Watt output, as every microwave is different. So has mine only 400, but they edist of 500, 600, and so on. So a percentage is not enough to repeat your flan. Got it?
It turned out nothing like flan. It was chunky. Maybe if you cooked the custard then poured the caramelized sugar on top after cooked... I would just leave it alone.
Instead of milk, Try Evaporated milk and COndensed milk. I Eyeballed the ingredients but next time, I'd take the extra time and use the oven.
