How to cook
Caramelize 2-3 tbsp. of sugar and distribute the caramel in 2 or 3 refractory flan molds.
Beat the eggs with 2 tbsp. of sugar without using a mixer, so that they do not become fluffy.
Grate half of the orange peel on a fine grater for citrus and add it to the eggs.
Pour the milk and stir.
Pour the mixture into cups and place it in a baking pan with water, so that the level reaches the middle of the molds.
Leave it to cool and during this time peel strips of the remaining half of the orange. It is important to peel only the orange part, so that they do not add a bitter taste afterwards. Pour a little water and boil for 8 minutes.
Discard the remaining water, if it has not evaporated. Pour a little more to cover the crusts by one finger. Add the remaining sugar and cook for another 8 minutes or until the syrup thickens.
To serve the delicious dessert, go along the edges of the molds with a knife and turn them over onto a plate. Drizzle each flan with a little of the thick orange syrup and garnish them with the caramelized crusts.
Enjoy! The orange flan with custard is great!
