This is a recipe for Flan that I have used for years. The hardest part is making the caramel sauce.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Caramelize 1/2 cup of granulated sugar and pour into custard dish.

Into the blender pour 1 can condensed milk, 1 can water, 4 eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Blend and pour into caramel dish.

Set filled dish into a water bath (coming at least half way up the dish)

Bake for one hour. Allow to cool completely then refrigerate. Turn into serving dish deep enough for sauce to surround the custard. The lady who first made it for me surrounded the custard with pineapple, strawberries and kiwi.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.

For years I made fudge the old fashioned way, sometimes with great success and sometimes not. Then reluctantly I tried the Eagle Brand recipe, and was shocked at how good it was! I resisted because I didn't consider it "real" fudge, now I wouldn't make it any other way!

My mother has a picture of me and my Aunt, each of us with a can of sweetened condensed milk and a spoon.

I second the Key Lime Pie and Caramel Sauce. Also:

Magic Bars Recipe - Baking.Food.com - 33597


Coconut Macaroons (these are very good):

Thanks for that flan recipe licia.....I can't wait to try it.

About that condensed milk fudge....

I've also done it with white chocolate chips with chopped dried cranberries. (Very pretty for Christmas)

I've added a teaspoon of instant coffee granules when melting the choc. chips and milk. Delicious Mocha Fudge.

I've made it with butterscotch chips and chopped pecans. Outstanding.

The beauty of this recipe is it's never failed me!!
