    In a heavy bottomed pot, heat one cup of sugar until melted and amber in color. Pour melted sugar into a flan mold (silicone mold). Then add the blended ingredients. Place flan mold into a large pan of boiling water (baño de María). The water should reach ¾ of the way up the pan. Turn down the heat to low and let the pan simmer in the boiling water for about 40 minutes covered.
