|Take the sugar and caramelize it in a small sauce pan. Do not let the sugar burn. It should be a golden caramel color. Pour this caramel into an 8" round dish. Make sure to coat the bottom and the sides of the pan.
Place all other ingredients in a blender and mix till it has a smooth consistency. Pour into the pan filled with caramel. Place pan in "baño de Maria". Bano de maria is a larger pan that has an been filled with an inch of water. This will help cook the flan. Place the larger pan with flan pan in it in the oven at 350 degrees. (25-30 minutes)
You can check the flan by poking it center with a knife. If the knife comes out clean then the flan is done.
