INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 3
    tablespoons sugar
  • 3
    ounces almonds, blanched
  • 1 13
    cups condensed milk
  • 34
    cup cream
  • 3
    eggs, whole
  • 3
    egg yolks

DIRECTIONS

  • Measure 3 tbsp sugar into an 8 inch layer cake pan. Place over heat and stir constantly until the sugar melts and turns a dark caramel color. Let it cool until the caramel hardens.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • Put 3 ounces of blanched almonds in a blender. Blend on high speed for 3 seconds. Leave the nuts in the blender container.
  • Add 1 1/3 cups condensed milk, 3/4 cup cream, 3 whole eggs and 3 egg yolks. Stir to mix, then blend on high speed for 8 to 10 seconds.
  • Empty into the caramelized pan, set pan in a larger pan containing about 1/2 inch hot water, and bake for 45 minutes, or until set at 325 degrees.
  • Cool and place in the refrigerator. Do not remove from the pan until the following day.
  • Invert the flan onto a chilled platter -- it should slip out easily.
