Hi, tnx for tying my cake..... you dont have to bake the flan first.... you have to set aside that first and then when your batter is done and is ready to bake it then pour that batter to the flan, just pour it slowly at the top of the flan and put the pan with flan and batter to the preheated big pan with water in the oven. make sure that the water is hot already before you put your batter so that it will not flop, and the flan at the bottom is cooked perfectly. bake for 35 mins. or until done. let it cool before you invert the cake.

Hi Bella,

Hmmm.....I have other recipe's that i use measurements but in my cooking recipe's only not in baking. I always use the grams in my baking recipe's because its accurate measurements. Sorry.... But you know this is so simple to use than measurements..
