What are overbaked home versions? I was implying any type of flan or 'pudding' - technically this is not flan but a variation of it that is a common bengali recipe - my mom's is simple and not as heavy (I like all types) -

5 or 6 eggs
sugar (I think it was about 6 large tablespoons, but probably more)
1 can of evaporated milk

bake, love it!! I can eat more of this since it's not really heavy like flan
