For caramel coating– ½ cup sugar (white, granulated)– 1 tablespoon of water, may not be used, see notesFor the coffee flan– 2 egg (large), or 3 medium– 1⅓ cup condensed milk– 1⅓ cup evaporated milk– ½ cup sugar (white, granulated)– ¼ cup Kahlúa Pumpkin Spice– 2 teaspoons instant coffee– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix sugar and water and cook in a heavy saucepan over low heat until thick dark caramel forms. Make sure it does not burn! You may need to stir it gently with a spatula to prevent it from burning on the hot spots.Pour carefully into a 5-cup baking pan and spread all over. Cool to room temperature, by then the caramel should have hardened.
In the blender vase, combine eggs, condensed milk, evaporated milk, sugar, Kahlúa, instant coffee, and vanilla extract. Blend the mixture.Pour carefully into the baking pan, trying not to disturb the caramel layer.
Remove from the oven and the water bath and cool to room temperature.Chill in the fridge. Loosen the edges of the flan with a toothpick.To unmold, place a serving plate on top of the mold (a deep-enough plate to retain the syrup) and invert. Serve still chilled.
