Flan (Caramel Custard)

  3. Place cups in 9-inch square pan on oven rack. Pour very hot water into pan to within 1/2 inch of tops of cups.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F until knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes.
  5. Immediately remove from water.
  6. Unmold and serve warm, or refrigerate and unmold at serving time.

Yields 4 servings.
