Recipe for our fave T-DAY dessert: Leche Flan
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 6 people
10 pieces of eggs
1 can condensed milk (14 oz)
1 cup fresh milk or evaporated milk
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Using all the eggs, separate the yolk from the egg white (only egg yolks will be used).
Place the egg yolks in a big bowl, then beat them using a fork or an egg beater.
Add the condensed milk and mix thoroughly.
Pour-in the fresh milk and Vanilla. Mix well
Put the mold (llanera) on top of the stove and heat using low fire.
Put the granulated sugar on the mold and mix thoroughly until the solid sugar turns into liquid (caramel), having a light brown color. Note: I find it more convenient to use individual Round Pans in making Leche flan.
Spread the caramel (liquid sugar) evenly on the flat side of the mold
Wait for 5 minutes, then pour the egg yolk and milk mixture on the mold
Cover the top of the mold using an Aluminum foil
Steam the mold with egg and milk mixture for 30 to 35 minutes.
After steaming, let the temperature cool down, then refrigerate
