Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Sugar
2 cups Light cream or half-and-half
½ teaspoon Vanilla extract
6 larges Eggs
¼ cup Fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon Finely grated orange peel
\N pinch Of salt
\N can Mandarin orange sections, drained, or fresh raspberries
\N \N For garnish
1 each Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a small, heavy skillet over

medium heat, cook ½ cup of the sugar, stirring frequently after it begins to bubble, until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Be careful that it does not burn. Remove from the heat, divide the syrup among 6 to 8 custard cups (depending upon their size), or pour into a 2-quart ovenproof mold, and swirl to coat the bottom. 2. In a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine the cream, the remaining sugar, and vanilla, heat until bubbles begin to form around the sides, and remove from the heat. In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, orange juice, peel, and salt, and whisk until smooth and light. Add the cream mixture and mix well. 3. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into the caramelized custard cups or mold, place in a large pan, and fill the outer pan with lukewarm water two thirds the height of the cups or mold. 4. Bake 1 hour for a large mold or slightly less for custard cups, or until a cake tester inserted in the flan comes out clean, then remove from the water bath, cool to room temperature, cover, and refrigerate. 5. To unmold, run a knife along the edge of the mold and invert it onto a serving platter. Spoon the caramel over the flan and serve at once, garnished with the oranges.
