Maple Almond Flan (South Beach Diet Phase 1)

“From most recent book. Haven't tried A traditional Spanish dessert, flan is a creamy custard baked with a sugar based caramel, which creates a toasty tasting sweet sauce. In this version, sugar free maple syrup is drizzled on top to create a similar effect. The maple taste is the perfect complement to toasted silvered almonds.”

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 275. Spread almonds on baking sheet and toast, stirring once, until lightly golden brown, 8-10 minutes. Transfer almonds to a cutting board to cool. Roughly chop and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine evaporated milk and fat free milk wand heat over medium-low heat until scalded but not boiling. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together egg substitute, sugar substitute and almond and vanilla extracts. Whisk in 1/2 cup of heated milk mixture, then whisk in remaining milk mixture.
  4. Divide flan into 4 6 ounce custard cups. Place cups in a baking pan and add enough hot water to come halfway up the cups. Bake until flan sets, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven, cool in pan, then chill in refrigerator 4 hours or overnight.
  5. Half an hour before serving, remove flans from refrigerator. Just before serving, run a knife along edge of cups, and invert flans onto individual plates. Drizzle each with 1 T syrup and sprinkle evenly with almonds.
