Ric Orlando's Gluten Free Holiday Dessert Recipe... FLAN!

It's Holiday time! And you need to bring something to the table that is impressive, but simple to make and easy to ack and transfer.  Once this is cold, wrap the dish in foil, and pack a serving platter, a little take out container of whipped cream and diced mangos and you are set.  When you do the "flip" from the pie tin to the serving platter, you AND your dish will get attention! A good, simple flan is a perfect dessert after an holiday pig out! This is an easy,delish recipe that utilizes evaporated milk. Why? Traditionally canned milk was the milk of choice in the island where refrigeration and proper packaging storing was not reliable and when you taste this flan, it will be very apparent that this THE milk to use. 
1 cup cane sugar / split ¼ cup water 2 cups evaporated milk 4 large (local cage free) eggs plus one yolk 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Pinch of salt 1 9 inch pie tin ( glass or ceramic is best) Preheat oven to 350°F.
