A-1 cup sugar
B- 5 eggs
1 can (13 oz) evaporated milk, undiluted
1 tsp vanilla extract
11/4 cups sugar

Pre heat oven to 350
Caramalize a round 8x3-inch aluminum pan without the tube, by melting 1 cup sugar, slowly, in the pan to a light gold. Swirl the pan to coat bottom and sides with caramel. Set on wire rack.
In a saucepan, break eggs, without beating, just enough to mix egg yolks and whites. Add rest of ingredients and mix. Strain
Pour strained mixture into the caramelized pan. Set pan in a large shallow baking pan containing about 1-inch of hot water and bake about 1 hour, or until set and golden. Remove pan from water bath.
Allow to cool on wire rack. Cover, and set in refrigerator. When ready to serve, turn custard onto a platter.

Personal Notes:
Caramelizing the sugar is the tricky part. It's also what makes the flan taste delicioso!! Be patient--you don't want to burn the sugar.
