The first time I made flan it came out perfect but couldn't find my recipe.This flan came out awful,boiling when I pulled it out of the oven. I have not found my oven too high for other dishes.Needless to say Not a good tasting flan. Next time I will try the water bath ( and lower temp) recipes I have been reading about.Very disappointed.

Flan is my all time favorite dessert and it took me years of hits and misses before I found the best way to prepare flan. Until I hit my stride it was more of a misses than a hits. 1- I use 6 whole eggs instead of only 3. A friend from the Philipines uses 12 yolks. By using 6 the Flan is more sturdy/solid. 2- After so many burns trying to transfer the caramel or getting the caramel uneven in the pan, I now use a teflon coated cooking pan (aprox 1.5 to 2qt or for larger I use a 3qt). I make the caramel in the pan itself, let it cool and then pour the mix into the pan. 3- Rather than baking I make my Flan in a Bain-au-Marie (waterbad) on the stovetop. No matter what size pan I use, I always make sure that the sides are higher than 2". I cover the pan with aluminium foil, make a couple of slits for ventilation. Making the Flan in the water-bad speeds up the cooking time and also prevents the caramel to burn or get any darker. No matter how good the Flan is, burn caramel will spoi
