  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest


  • In a clear, microwave-safe bowl, combine water and sugar. Stir well under sugar is completely dissolved. 
  • Microwave on high for about 4 to 5 minutes or until color changes to honey-gold. Immediately pour into the ramekins or llaneras.

  • Add lime zest and stir.

  • Pour into prepared ramekins. Cover ramekins with foil and arrange in a wide, oven-safe dish with about 1-inch of water (water bath). 
  • Bake in a 375 F oven for about 40 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of custard comes out clean. 
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool and refrigerate to set. To serve, turn flan over on a serving plate, ending with caramel on top.
