Orange Flan (Pudim de Laranja)

Flans are one of the best aspects of Portuguese dessert making. Pudim de Laranja, or Orange Flan is one of my favorite variations on Portuguese flans. The wonderful smooth texture of the flan really complements the orange citrus flavor well, and it is definitely one of my favorites. This flan is perfect for those with a sweet tooth like myself and is quite easy to make. Try it out and tell us what you think!
