Easy Flan Recipe for Kids

This is Max's favorite flan recipe. He has tried several, but everyone in the family prefers this one. Sometimes French flan is served in a pie crust, but that is unnecessary with this recipe. The flour in the batter settles to the bottom of the flan as it is cooking and forms a crust all by itself.
