First time flan maker checked this site, recipe looked good less eggs, a good thing, then I read a few reviews, I've found I learn a lot from these with most recipes, one in particular from eka01 caught my attention, a faster way to mix ingredients. Instead of melting sugar over heat she put 2/3 cup sugar and small amounts of water and lemon juice in Pyrex measuring cup and microwaved it, 2 minutes, check sugar, then another 2 minutes, finished, I found in my micro it took only 3 minutes total. She also used a blender to mix all ingredients, eggs first then added remaining ingredients, I tried it. I was concerned because I was having friends in for dinner, Cuban pork roast, rice and beans then the flan, and he is a flan LOVER has had it in many restaurants including some in Spain. when I served it, he said it blew him away, told him I would like constructive criticism so I could improve next time, he said it was perfect the way it was and not to fool around with recipe! I really wanted to thank "eka01" for her tips!!!
