  1. Place sugar and water in a very clean saucepan. Cook over medium high heat until the sugar begins to brown. Watch constantly but do not stir.
  2. Remove from heat and divide among 4 oven safe custard cups. Set aside.
  3. For the flan: Combine all ingredients except the cherries and whisk together well.
  4. Divide the flan mix among the 4 cups. Equally divide the chopped cherries among the 4 cups. Place the custard cups in a large roasting pan and fill pan with hot water until it reaches the middle of the cups.
  5. Bake at 250 degrees F for 3 hours until middle of custard is just set. It will firm up as it cools.
  6. Remove cups from water bath and chill until completely set.
  7. To serve: Run a knife around the outside edge of each flan. Invert onto a dessert plate, and shake gently until flan releases from the cup. Serve immediately.
