Creamy Caramel Flan

I did a search for "Mexican recipes dessert" and this Creamy Caramel Flan was one that got pretty good reviews.

To start, you have to turn the sugar into a delicious caramel. This is the sugar after FOREVER and it is not quite melted yet.

The caramelized sugar glazes the bottom of a pan followed by all the creamy ingredients. The pan is placed on a towel in a boiling hot water bath...carefully placed into the oven.

After the flan is cooled and set in the fridge, the next day you have a creamy Mexican dessert. The sugar turns into a runny sauce after being cooked and cooled.

See, its really runny. Anyways, it was okay. I didn't love it...especially the second time :( BUT B like it. I am glad I tried it.
