Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
step 2
Into a small frying pan, add Granulated Sugar (1/3 cup), Water (2 Tbsp), and the juice from Lemon (1). Cook over medium heat for 6-7 minutes without stirring.
step 3
Once the mixture reaches an auburn color, remove from the heat and evenly divide between 4 individual flan ramekins, then set aside.
step 4
Add Blanched Slivered Almonds (3/4 cup) to a food processor and pulse between 60-90 seconds or until the almonds turn into a powder. Set aside.
step 5
Crack Organic Eggs (4) into a large bowl. Whisk them well, then slowly pour in Granulated Sugar (1/3 cup) while you continue to whisk. Add the processed almonds and whisk together until well combined.
step 6
Into a pitcher, add Whole Milk (1 3/4 cups) and Vanilla Extract (as needed). Mix together, then slowly pour the milk into the egg mixture while whisking.
step 7
Transfer the entire mixture back into the pitcher and evenly divide between the 4 individual flan ramekins.
step 8
Add the ramekins to a casserole dish and fill the casserole halfway with water. Bake for exactly 45 minutes.
step 9
Remove from the oven and transfer the ramekins to a wire rack to cool for 30 minutes.
step 10
Cover each ramekin with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
step 11
When you are ready to serve the flans, remove them from the fridge, gently run a paring knife around the outer edges, place a plate on top, and flip. Shake the ramekin to release the flan.
step 12
Garnish with blanched almonds. Serve and enjoy!
