    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 1 cup almonds, blanched
    • 8 egg yolks
    • 1 cup fresh orange juice
    • 2 oranges, zest of (grated)
    • orange section (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small, heavy saucepan, melt 1/2 cup of the sugar with the water over high heat. Cook, without stirring, until mixture is a caramel color and is fragrant. Do not let it get too dark or it will taste bitter.
    2. 2
      Very carefully pour the caramel into the bottom of a 1 qt flan mold or 6 caramel cups. Swirl quickly to coat the bottoms and sides.
    3. 3
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    4. 4
      Place almonds into a food processor with 1/4 cup of the remaining sugar and process until finely ground. Set aside.
    5. 5
      In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and remaining sugar. Add the orange juice, zest almonds and mix well.
    6. 6
      Pour the mixture in to your prepared baking mold or cups and place into a larger baking pan. Add hot water to the pan to reach halfway up the sides of the mold or cups. Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil.
    7. 7
      Bake until a knife inserted into the center emerges clean, 35-40 minutes for the custard cups and 1 hour for the mold. Remove from the oven, then remove from the baking pan. Let cool a bit then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled.
    8. 8
      To serve, run a thin knife around each flan and invert onto individual plates or one large plate. Spoon the caramel that flows onto the plates over the top. Garnish with orange segments.
