Steps to follow:

In a saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons sugar and make caramel. Once you have caramel pour it in to the microwavable mould that you will use to make the flan. Put some of the milk in a glass with vanilla and put it in the microwave for a couple of minutes, so that the vanilla releases its aroma.


In a bowl, beat the eggs, add the sugar and the milk (including vanilla). Mix well and pour the mixture into the mould where you put the caramel before. Put the mould with the mixture in the microwave and turn it on at a power of 700W-800W for 6 minutes.

What setting on the microwave oven is 700W-800W? low? medium? high?
OneHowTo Editor
High should work, but keep an eye on it. Even though they should be standardized, not all microwaves work as well as others even if they say they are the same wattage.
What is the size of the mould, please?
OneHowTo Editor
It depends on the depth, but a 8" pan should work, no worries if it is a little bigger or smaller, just ensure to check on it.
