The flan was quite tasty, but it took FOREVER to cook! The batter was kind of like the color of a mind flayer's butt--very pale mauve. I popped it into the oven at 5:00, hoping I could take it out at 6:20 to run to visit some friends, but it was still wiggly and un-set at 6:50. Argh!
I took it out and tried to flip it out of its pan, it kind of shattered in a custardy way, so it really wasn't very pretty. Unfortunate...I guess I used a big pan with too much drop-distance. Bleah. But it tasted okay, custardly with an unusual tart note, and a BIG flan hardly ever looks good...except to the rare flan afficionado.
It really is a terribly mucoidal dessert.
Since it's dark in the computer room and I can't see what I'm eating, I'm going to now finish off the custard. Flantastic! :)
