When you have the liquid caramel ready, without letting it harden, pour it into the mold that you have prepared, let it cool down and reserve it to continue with the following steps.
Beat the eggs with the sugar, Add ground almonds and beat for 1 minute at minimum speed if you beat it in a mixer, if you do it by hand you must beat for 3 minutes or until the mixture is homogeneous.

Carefully pour the mixture that you have reserved on the container where you have the liquid caramel, put the flan in the oven tray where you put the water and bake the almond flan for 45 minutes at 180 ºC. If you need to cover the top of the flan because it is browning a lot, do it with aluminum foil.
