Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C, or gas mark 4).

To make the syrup: Combine the Splenda, molasses, and water, stirring until the lumps are gone.

Spray a glass pie plate with nonstick cooking spray and pour the mixture into it, spreading it over the bottom.

Microwave for 2 minutes on medium power.

(You could substitute the sugar-free syrup of your choice for this syrup; just use 2 to 3 tablespoons [30 to 45 ml].

) To make the custard: Whisk together well the heavy cream, half-and-half, eggs, vanilla, nutmeg, salt, and Splenda and pour the mixture over the syrup in the pie plate.

Place the pie plate carefully in a large, flat baking dish and pour water around it, not quite up to the rim of the pie plate.

Put the baking pan with the pie plate in its water bath in the oven.

Bake for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool and cut the flan into wedges.

Traditionally, each piece is served inverted on a plate with the syrup on top.
