In this Classic Flan Recipe, the caramelized sugar melts during baking, forming an amber-colored caramel sauce. The sauce flows down the sides when unmolded, to surround the flan in a pool. Be sure to use a deep enough platter or plate to contain the sauce.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 to 50 minutes

1/2 cup sugar, caramelized
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk

To caramelize sugar:

(Caution: Caramelized sugar is very hot; take care not to touch it.) Place sugar in small heavy saucepan. Heat over medium heat, watching carefully, until sugar is melted and turns deep golden brown. Immediately remove from heat and pour into 9-inch flan dish or pie plate. Holding dish with potholders, quickly tilt dish to coat bottom completely and evenly. Syrup will harden quickly.
