Orange Flan

This amazingly creamy nondairy flan has two stealth ingredients: almond milk and orange-flower water. The former adds richness but no strong almond flavor, which allows the orange juice and zest to shine. A smidgen of the latter boosts the fragrance of the fruit, but most importantly, it slips in something a little exotic that makes this dessert an absolute knockout.
