Almond Flan With Summer Fruits
1 cup sugar
¼ cup water
1 cup heavy whipping cream
One 14-ounce can condensed milk
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ teaspoon almond extract
1. Combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil, but don’t stir. Wash down side of pan with brushfuls of water if needed. Allow to boil gently to reach a medium caramel color. Then swirl pan to combine, and pour into a serving dish. Tip so caramel coasts sides about an inch or so. Allow to cool completely.
2. Combine remaining ingredients in a blender. Pour atop cooled caramel and cook in a water bath for 1 and ¼ hours. Allow to cool for several hours.
3. If you dare, invert the flan for presentation, otherwise, scoop spoonfuls of flan atop berries and mint.
