Summerhill Goat Milk Flan

A creamy goat milk custard. Vanilla, caramel, cardamom, and orange zest flavors come together for this delicious dessert. It’s tough to stop after the first bite!

Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cup sugar, divided

  • 4 large eggs

  • 3 cups Summerhill Goat Milk

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon orange zest

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Step 2

Using a medium sized saucepan with a heavy bottom, heat 1 cup of sugar over medium heat until it begins to melt. Stir constantly until the sugar has totally melted into a light brown syrup, about 10 minutes of stirring.

Step 3

Divide the syrup evenly between six ramekins, quickly turning each ramekin to cover its bottom and part of the sides.

Step 4

In a medium-sized bowl, beat the eggs with the remaining ¾ cup sugar.

Step 5

Using a medium- sized saucepan, heat the milk until just simmering, when steam begins to rise from the pan. Slowly pour into the egg- mixture, stirring as you pour.

Step 6

Add the vanilla, orange zest, and cardamom. Mix well.

Step 7

Pour the custard into the caramel-lined ramekins. Place the ramekins in a large baking dish. Use a large measuring cup to fill the baking dish with an inch of hot water.

Step 8

Place the large baking dish in the preheated oven and bake 45 minutes, until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the middle of a flan.

Step 9

Allow the flans to cool on a rack. Serve warm or chilled. To serve, run a sharp knife around the sides of each ramekin and invert onto dessert plates. Enjoy!
