The stages of preparation of the ultra gourmet flan signed Chritophe Michalak and Eric Kayser:

  6. Pour half of the liquid preparation into the mixing bowl and mix this new preparation with a whisk. Pour the latter mixture into the remaining mixture in the saucepan. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly. After boiling, continue to stir for a minute, the saucepan, again, on the induction hob.
