Fig And Port Flan

Serves: 12
Total Calories: 137


1 (8-ounce) jar fig spread or preserves, preferably Adriatic Fig Spread
4 cups milk, any fat content
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons port wine
4 extra-large eggs, or 1 cup egg substitute


Heat the oven to 350°F. Spread the fig spread over the bottom of a 10-inch shallow baking dish. Place in the oven for 5 to 8 minutes while you prepare the custard for the flan.

Combine the milk and sugar in a microwave-safe bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave at full power for 4 minutes. Remove from the microwave and whisk in the extracts, wine, and eggs. Remove the prepared pan from the oven and ladle the custard into the pan place in a larger pan and add enough water to the larger pan to come at least 1 inch up the side of the flan pan. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

Remove the baking dish from the pan of water and let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until chilled before serving. To serve, run a knife around the edge of the custard, cover with a platter, and invert. As soon as you hear the flan drop into place, remove the pan. Serve cut into wedges.
