Custards, in general, date back to ancient roman times when Romans began keeping chickens and had an excess number of eggs after first raising chickens. There are many variations to flan, but instead of one that has too much egg, this recipe incorporates almonds for a creamy texture.

Suggested Wine Pairing: Ceja Sonoma Coast Syrah


For the flan

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 (12 oz) can of evaporated milk
  • 2 (10 oz) cans of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 Cup slivered blanched almonds
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 Cups sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons water

For the raspberry salsa

  • 1 Cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 Tablespoons water
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar

A Basic Flan Recipe

A Basic Flan Recipe

1 cup sugar
3 eggs
4 large egg yolks
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, melt sugar until liquefied and golden in color. Carefully pour hot syrup into a 9″ round glass baking dish, turning the dish to evenly coat the bottom and sides. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat eggs. Beat in condensed milk, evaporated milk and vanilla until smooth. Pour egg mixture into baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil.
Bake in preheated oven 60 minutes. Let cool completely. To serve, carefully invert on serving plate with edges when completely cool.

About the Recipe

When you hear the words “Mexican food” you might conjure up images of becoming a fire-breathing dragon. This slaw is far from that. Rather than spicy with heat, it’s simply spiced with a dressing of classic Mexican flavors.

Lime juice. Garlic. Cumin. Oregano. Coriander. And just a slight dash of hot sauce. Because I just couldn’t help myself and had to add just a dash of heat, but certainly not the whole enchilada.

Rather than mincing the garlic, I’ve totally been into the using a garlic press like my mom always used to do. This one has been a solid helper in my kitchen.

A slither of honey sweetens the dressing that’s then poured over the crunchy slaw with slivers of red onion and freshly chopped cilantro leaves. Then you simply toss and let it sit. If cilantro is not your thing, you can always give good old flat leaf parsley a go or leave it out all together.

Heat oven to Mark 6/200°C. Grease a 20cm loose-based fluted tin. Unroll the pastry onto a rolling pin, then unroll over the tin. Press the pastry into the tin (it should hang over the edge slightly). Chill in the fridge for 20 mins.

Line the pastry case with baking paper and fill with baking beans. Bake blind for 10-15 mins, remove the baking beans, then return to the oven for 3-4 mins. Remove from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to Mark 4/180°C.

Using an electric whisk, beat together the butter and sugar until pale. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until combined. Fold in the almonds, flour and almond extract, and beat for 1 min. Gently fold in the raspberries.

Spoon the filling into the pastry case, put on a baking tray and bake for 20-25 mins until golden. Leave to cool in the tin and dust with icing sugar to serve.

Others will see how you vote!

Cyclone Anaya's hosted my Special Education class this morning for a field trip. David and the staff planned every detail for us and did such a wonderful job. It truly made our day. Everything was ready for the students when we arrived. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. I was beyond impressed!
(Sidenote--The food is absolutely delicious! They gave us chips and salsa, tacos and guacamole, and the flan for dessert. Amazing!)

Went there on Sunday. About 5:00 PM the place had few customers being in new nice location merryfiled town center they should be busy that what was my first indication that something is wrong . The hostess set us down and here comes the waiter asking us for drinks never introduce him self he pointed some dishes in the menus barely speaking English he said everything is good . We ordered a chicken tacos was cheesy the camarones fajitas ,the shrimp was over cooked being placed in a very hot metal plate it was pretty much fried May wife got salmon insalata it was ok , for desert we had the three choices simpler , flan chocolate cackle and cheesecake it was horrible , the service is not the greatest the layout of the dining room is nice other than that noting else was pleasant .
I probably never comeback again .

The Good: Frozen margaritas with raspberry liqueur, the "swirly", Soft Shell crab tacos.

The Bad: Braised Tacos, Flan , Cyclone Margarita. everyone else's plate.

The shiny blue lights were attractive, and we were dying to try this place out. The first time we tried, it was flooded with patrons, so we decided to come back at a better time when it wasn't so packed.

We finally came back, and were sadly disappointed. I really wanted to like this place. Where do I begin?

The Chips and salsa were blah. Cold chips, an unnatural red sauce, no semblance of tomato. Like they mixed a tabasco with a salsa. it was blah.

The frozen margaritas were tasty, perfect even. high marks for that.

The soft shell crab tacos were truly inspired, the jicama, the ripe avocado, the sauce on the side. it was divine--the beans and rice that came along were just ok and barely warm. The taco tortillas were chewy and overcooked.

The braised tacos were the driest tacos I have ever had. No accompanying sauce, it was so dry--jerky like--I had to ask for a side of barbeque sauce or SOMETHING to break up the dry. It needed a sauce. I didn't eat more than half of it.

So that means I had room for desert then right? Bring on the flan !

high marks for presentation, real fresh whipped cream and delicious blackberries along side: The most overcooked piece of flan I have ever had. It was denser than cheese cake and that is a big NO NO in the flan world. The air bubbles were everywhere, the flavors were right--the technique was not. Use a water bath next time. It lacked all creaminess. Booo.

I'd rather go to Uncle Julios. Sorry Cyclone.

Had I read the reviews I would not have come here. We intended to go to Matchbox, but the one-hour wait turned us off. Our wait was about 30 minutes. It was a bit more noisy than I would like. The service was very good even though it was crowded. The hostesses appeared to have a good system of getting customers seated.

I am not a fan of tex-mex. I did not have a margarita either. Drank reasonably price Coronas, $5.50 each.

Guacamole was good, but I thought the serving size was small for the $8 price.

I had the Enchilada Florentine, which was excellent every bit worth the $23 price. Next time I will get the Lobster Enchiladas. My BF had the Jumbo Crab Nachos good, but IMHO not worth the $22 price. The portion size was just too small for $22. BF's daughter had the Chicken Enchiladas. She loved them. I had Flan she had Chocolate Cake. Both were great. The manager walked by asked us how everything was. He notice her Coke was empty he went to the bar and refilled it for her himself.

We had a great dinner. We will definitely go back. We have always been faithful El Tio patrons. Really glad we tried this place.

Wow, glad I finally tried this new restaurant for lunch in the mosaic district. Our waiter Alejandro was very helpful and pleasant . They have great options for lunch but I chose the fish tacos on the regular menu, they were delicious ! The others in my party had chosen the lunch specials and couldn't say enough about the quality of the chicken they used and the overall quality of the food. We decided to order dessert and was not disappointed in the flan . sooo good! Our waiter Alejandro told us that the chocolate cake is also amazing, so we will be back ..

It makes me sad that this place is rated so poorly. I just had dinner there with my friend and we had a fantastic meal. Shortly after we sat down, we got chips and salsa. The salsa was pretty spicy, which is fine because I did not want to fill up on chips. My friend commented that she would have liked the chips salted, but it didn't make a difference to me. Our server mumbled a bit. I am not even certain whether he had an accent or not and if he did, it might have been British? *shrug*

We ordered the soft-shell crab tacos and the lobster tacos. Neither seem to be your typical Mexican fare, but it was nice to have something a little different. The lobster tacos were overladen with red cabbage slaw, so your lost some of the lobster flavor. The soft-shell crab tacos were outstanding though - they are battered and fried to perfection.

For dessert we had tres leches cake and flan . Neither were anything to write home about.

What I enjoyed most about Cyclone Anaya's was the portion sizes. My entree was satisfying and it left just enough room for dessert. I will be back!

Took the family for a lunch here today. The place was sort of empty at around 11:45am. When we got there and seated, it took the waiter 10-15 min to show up for us to order drinks. Once the orders were in and drinks served we were able to enjoyed the nice decorated interior before our food arrived, it's a little over done to my taste for a texmex restaurant (too fancy?). May be the management reviewed the write ups here and improved their service, our waiter was very attentive and brings out new drinks (iced tea and water) whenever any one of our glass is half empty without asking. The food (fish tacos, soft shell crab tacos, flan , etc.) were nicely prepared and tasty. Price is OK for an up scale place in a town center environment. Lunch for 4 adults with appetizer plus desert cost $58 plus tax and tips. Portions are good so you won't walk away still hungry. Since this is a lunch so we didn't try any alcoholic drinks but they do have two bars (one at the entrance and another upstairs). Dinning room is not very big and rest room is clean and nicely done with a TV at eye level above urinal :-) We will return for more for sure and hope they will keep up the good food and service next time.

Two stars is on the generous side - 1.5 is closer.

We had the single worse server I have had in more years than I can remember. I just wanted to say to him: are you SURE this is the work you should be doing? He was both weird and clueless. All I kept thinking of was the Great American Restaurant (Sweetwater, etc) chain, and how they train such great staff. Take note, Cyclone Ayana management.

So the truly important part: the food. Started with the salsa, which was tasty, and had a nice zing to it - but the chips were too thick and not very tasty.

We shared a tiny order of three small scoops of guacamole. It was really flavorless. How can you mess up guacamole??

My main course was fish tacos - the fish was a tad too "fishy". Other than that, it was just so basic. What's the point if you don't add something special to it, like a really tasty sauce? Nothing I couldn't have thrown together from the grocery store in 5 minutes.

Dessert: The flan had some odd topping, not normal caramel and it was overcooked, with little bubbles indicating it had been cooked beyond the perfect creamy consistency for flan .

I like to think things will get better. but frankly, everything just seemed so careless.

And did I mention how painfully slow the clueless server was?

Too bad - we were looking forward to some quality Mexican food I suspect the owners are just not engaged enough or there just is a different standard in Texas.

Read some of the above ratings and can not understand. This place must have had a bad opening week, but they seem to have it together now.

Came in just after 5pm when I was finished work with my wife. Was quickly sat. Ambience was amazing, perfect for me to relax after such a long day. Sat next to the kitchen and got to watch the food come out. Almost immediately after we were sat we were given chips and salsa! The salsa was perfectly spiced, not chunky but not runny. Chips, amazing, clearly home made.

I ordered the blueberry coconut mojito (less then 130 calories) and it was fantastic. The perfect sweetness and I could feel the alcohol! For an appetizer we ordered a half portion of the spinach quesadilla. It was flavored perfectly and the cheese was melted beautifully. Guacamole complimentary and perfectly seasoned. Possibly a new chef from previous reviews. For entrees I ordered the Juanito's Superior with steak, Mexican rice and refried beans. The Mexican rice was a little bland but everything else had amazing flavors. The steak in my taco al carbon was cooked and seasoned perfectly. Nothing comes on the taco, but it is served with guac and pico. Cheese enchilada had a ton of cheese, not too much onion and just the right amount of sauce. My wife ordered the Pollo Jalisco. It comes with refried beans, grilled veggies, sliced avocado and Mexican rice however she subbed it with cilantro rice. The vegetables were yellow squash and zucchini and they were perfect. The cilantro rice was much better then the Mexican rice. The chipotle chardonnay cream sauce on the chicken was delicious. Hot, but didn't burn. I ate a lot off her plate. We ordered dessert, I got the tres leches and she ordered flan . Both were delicious. Plated beautifully! Neither were too heavy making me feel guilty after I am finished like most desserts. Only $5 each.

Like I said perhaps they had a tough opening week, but the food I had was terrific. We will definitely be returning, and I can not wait until they are open for lunch.

Almond recipes

Almonds, native to the Middle East historically, are not only an incredibly useful ingredient to cook with, but they are packed with vitamins and minerals too. They come in a few different forms - either whole, blanched or ground - and work well in both sweet and savoury recipes. You’ve certainly got to admire a nut that can top Anna Hansen’s richly flavoured lamb shank and polenta recipe, while at the same time forming the base of Graham Hornigold’s cherry blossom macaron!

As well as being a key ingredient in frangipane - found in a variety of desserts, such as James MacKenzie’s quirky pistachio and raspberry Bakewell tart - ground almonds are increasingly being used in baking as a fantastic gluten-free alternative to flour. Peter Gordon’s boiled orange cake, served up with a creamy, dairy-free coconut custard, uses coconut, almonds and orange to create a cake that anyone, food tolerance or not, is bound to go nuts for.
