At first weld caramel. Kindle 130 grams of sugar on fire, having added 5 tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. When sugar turns into liquid, pour it into the molds so that it coveres the bottom. Then mix 3 eggs with 70 grams of sugar, freshly squeezed juice of 1 orange and 115 ml. of milk. Pour the received mix into the molds on top of the caramel. Warm up the oven to 170 degrees. Put molds in the container with water so that the water bath reaches the middle of the molds. Bake about 40 minutes until flan becomes firm at the edges. Keep the dessert in the refrigerator a couple of hours before serving. Turn molds upside down right on a plate – flan must slip out easily. The dessert is ready.
