How to Make Leche Flan?

Leche Flan is a Filipino dessert made from milk and eggs. It is somewhat similar to Creme Brulee, only that the sugar topping is not crunchy. Instead it is caramelized sugar syrup. Someone requested for me to make this so I am writing this. This is the recipe I follow and you can make revisions to it as you see fit. You would need a steamer, a strainer and elongated baking pans (llanera). Make sure that you baking pan would fit inside your steamer.

Leche Flan Ingredients

1/4 k                        refined white sugar
1 can(big)                condensed milk
1 can(big)                evaporated milk
7 pcs                       egg yolk
1 pc                         whole egg

Making Leche Flan

1. Put sugar on the baking pan and caramelize sugar over low heat. Do not burn the sugar too much as it would become bitter. Let it cool  so it would harden.

2. Take 7 pcs. of eggs and separate the egg yolk from the egg white. You will use only the egg yolks.

3. Add the whole egg to the egg yolks.

4. Add the Condensed milk and the Evaporated milk to the egg yolks. Mix carefully. Do not over mix as it would make the mixture too bubbly and could ruin the texture of the Flan.

5. Boil some water on the steamer. Once the water is already boiling, pour one cup of the mixture into the baking pan with the hardened caramelized sugar and put it in the steamer. Cook for 15-20 minutes over medium fire.

6. Once it is cooked, let it cool down and turn it over to your serving plate and refrigerate. It is best served cold.
