Spoiler alert: This recipe is gluten free and also dairy free!
I like unique recipes that are full of flavor, so for today I decided to share with you this beautiful Orange-Almond Flan. Flan is a versatile dessert that can be made in many different ways by adding different ingredients to the base of milk, eggs and sugar. One of my favorite recipes of flan is Flan with Cream Cheese, but I also love the flan with a hint of coffee in it.
This recipe does not have any dairy, which is a little bit unusual for a flan recipe. The orange juice and the almonds are a perfect combination.
Also, by adding the almond flour to the mixture, some magic happens in the oven during baking. The composition separates into these three beautiful layers of goodness.
When flipped upside down, the same way as you would do with any flan, you end up with a base of a thin almond cake, flan in the middle and gooey, delicious caramel syrup on top.
It is a superb dessert, very elegant to serve for a special meal and also very easy to put together. If you prefer, the flan can be made in ramekins instead, for individual portions.
No matter how you make it, if you love flan, then you should add this recipe to your collection. It’s a must!
