1 tsp. water (optional)

5 egg yolks
1 can (12 oz.) evaporated milk
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:
EQUIPMENT: Small saucepan, 1 qt. round casserole dish with lid, and 1 baking pan that the casserole dish will fit into. CARAMEL: Melt the sugar in a small saucepan until golden/golden brown (a small amount of water can be added to bring to desired consistency). Pour the caramel into the bottom of the casserole dish. CUSTARD: As you prepare the custard, the caramel will cool. In a separate bowl, beat the 1 whole egg and 5 egg yolks together. Add the evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk to the eggs and mix together. Add the vanilla extract. Pour the custard mixture into the casserole dish over the hardened caramel. Put on the lid. Put your covered casserole dish into the baking pan and fill with hot water to about half-way up the sides. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Turn off the oven and let set for another 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and the water-bath and let cool. PLATING: Run a butter-knife around the outside edge of the flan. Place a plate large enough to handle the caramel over the flan and invert. Chill the flan for at least an hour before serving.
