Mexican flan (custard)

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
8 \N Eggs
⅔ cup Sugar
¼ teaspoon Salt
26 ounces Evaporated milk, undiluted
2 teaspoons Vanilla

Traditionally this is made with a layer of caramelized sugar on the bottom of the pan: heat white sugar in a heavy pan until it melts and turns light brown, then quickly and carefully pour it into the baking pan and tilt the pan so it runs all over the bottom.

Beat eggs, mix in sugar and salt, then milk and vanilla. Pour into a glass baking dish and set the dish in a pan of hot water in the oven at 350 degrees. Bake uncovered for 1 hour or until solid. I think it comes out better if you don't stir it while it's cooking.
