Ingredients

1 cup sugar
3 eggs
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
12 ounces evaporated milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
caramel sauce (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


Melt sugar in a saucepan over medium low heat until it’s liquefied and golden in color. Pour this syrup into a nine inch round glass baking dish, making sure it evenly coats the bottom and up onto the sides.


In a large bowl beat the eggs, condensed milk, evaporated milk and vanilla until smooth.


Pour mixture into the baking dish and cover. If you do not have a cover for your baking dish use aluminum foil.


Bake for 1 hour and then remove from the heat and let stand to cool completely. After it’s cooled a bit you may want to move it to the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process.


When you’re ready to serve carefully flip it upside down onto a serving platter. Pour caramel sauce as much as desired, refrigerate for another 5 minutes, and then serve.

Notes

I've always had a sweet spot for sweets. This year, my Mexican roommate taught me how to make flan that she learned from her mom. This is an excellent dessert recipe and a delicious excuse to have something sweet for

Cinco de Mayo.
