Leche Flan Recipe


Leche Flan is one of the favorite Filipino desserts which is very popular during special occasion or gatherings especially Christmas and birthdays.


Ingredients:

10 egg yolks
1 big can of evaporated milk
1 big can of condensed milk
1 cup of white sugar
¾ cup of water
1 tsp of vanilla extract


Directions:

  • In a saucepan, mix the sugar and water. Boil until sugar is melted and caramelized.
  • Pour the caramelized sugar into aluminum moulds which can be of any shape like round, oval, or square. Spread the caramel into the moulds.
  • Mix well the evaporated milk, condensed milk, egg yolks, and vanilla. It’s better if you mix them with a blender for smoothness.
  • Slowly pour the mixture on top of the caramel on the moulds. Fill about 1 to 1-1/4 inch thick.
  • Cover the moulds with aluminum foil.
  • Cook by steaming for about 20 minutes or by baking it for about 45 minutes. Make sure you pre-heat oven to about 370 degrees before baking. Leche Flan is cooked when you insert a knife or toothpick - it comes out clean.
  • Let it cool and refrigerate.


To serve:
Loosen the Leche Flan by running a thin knife around the edges of the mould. Cover with a platter then quickly turn upside down to show the golden brown caramel on top.
