How to make it

  • In a medium, heavy-bottom saucepan, combine the sugar with the orange juice and one-fourth cup water.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Continue to cook until the sugar caramelizes and turns an amber color, then remove from the heat and immediately pour into a 13-by-9-inch glass baking dish and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Heat the oven to 300 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, then whisk in the condensed, evaporated and regular milks.
  • Whisk in the amaretto and vanilla, and then pour the flan base into
  • the baking dish.
  • Place the dish inside a large roasting pan (the roasting
  • pan must be big enough so that there is a 1-inch clearance on all sides) and fill it with enough hot water so that it comes halfway up the side of the glass baking dish.
  • Place the pan in the oven and cook 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until a knife inserted near the center of the flan comes out clean.
  • Remove the flan from the water bath and allow to cool, then place in the refrigerator, loosely covered, to chill until cold, preferably overnight.
  • Invert onto a platter and serve immediately
  • Garnish with cranberries, pecans and whipped cream OR
  • Serve with an optional strawberry sauce or any fruit topping
