  1. Heat 1 cup of sugar (dry) in a saucepan over medium heat. Do not stir until you start to see the sugar melting and bubbling. When the sugar is completely melted and golden brown, pour it into a 9 inch glass or ceramic pie plate and tilt to coat.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the milk, remaining sugar, vanilla and eggs until well blended. Pour into the pie plate.
  3. Cook in the microwave at 50% power for 7 minutes, then cook at 100% power for 8 minutes. A knife inserted into the center of the flan should come out clean when it is done. If it is not done after the 8 minutes, cook at one minute intervals, checking each time. Cool and refrigerate before serving.
  4. To serve, warm the bottom of the pie plate over a pan of simmering water to loosen the caramelized sugar. Place a serving plate on top of the dish, and invert so that the flan is on the serving dish and the caramelized coating is on top.

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 ...

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. ...
