  • 1
    Heat oven to 350ºF. Heat 3/4 cup sugar and the water to boiling in heavy 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly. Boil, without stirring, until syrup is deep golden brown.
  • 2
    Place quiche dish, 9x1 1/2 or 10x1 1/4 inches, in hot water until warm (to prevent dish from cracking when pouring hot syrup into it); dry completely. Pour syrup into dish; immediately rotate dish until syrup covers bottom.
  • 3
    Beat remaining ingredients except half-and-half and whipping cream in large bowl until well blended. Beat in half-and-half and whipping cream. Pour over syrup. Place dish in shallow roasting pan on oven rack. Pour very hot water into pan until 1 inch deep. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  • 4
    Remove dish from water; cool 15 minutes. Refrigerate about 3 hours or until chilled. Loosen side of flan from dish with knife; unmold. Store covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

  • A tart pan with a removable bottom, while many times used to make a quiche, can't be used for making flan because the flan mixture is thin enough to leak out the bottom of the pan.
  • Quiche dishes are shallow, round and usually glazed ceramic dishes. If you find flan becomes one of your dessert specialties, you'll want to look for a flan dish. It looks much like a quiche dish but has a smooth instead of a fluted side.
