Caramelize sugar; pour into pie dish and swirl onto sides and all over bottom. It will harden very quickly, so spread it fast.
Mix all other ingredients together in food processor; do not over whip or mix.
Add liquid to dish and place over hot water bath.
Bake at 350 degrees on middle rack for 60 minutes.
Remove from oven and water bath; allow to cool then refrigerate.
Invert to serve. Bueno.
~I made flan for the first time and it was wonderful! A very rich refreshing dessert.
Madagascar Vanilla (purchase at Chefs Catalog) Of all the vanilla's I've used this is my favorite. Once you've tried it you won't go back!
