After taking the flan out of the oven shake it lightly to see if it's ready; if it jiggles slightly, it means it's ready, if it's too stiff, it's overdone. If it's still too runny, put it back in the oven and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes. You may also test it by inserting a knife into the custard. If the knife comes out clean it means the custard is ready.
