Leche Flan is a delicious and popular Filipino caramel custard dessert present during special occassions like birthdays and fiestas.
12 egg yolks
1 300-ml can sweetened condensed filled milk
1 370-ml can evaporated filled milk
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup sugar
Sugar and water
To the bowl of yolks, add the condensed milk, evaporated milk, and vanilla, in that order. Pour in each ingredient slowly and mix gently until the mixture is smooth. Set aside. Prepare the sugar syrup (see below for recipe).
Pour syrup in molds then pour the egg mixture. Cover each mold with aluminum foil. Cook in the steamer for 45 minutes or until done. To know if the flan is cooked, dip a toothpick into it. If no flan particles stick to the toothpick, it’s cooked and ready.
When cooked, refrigerate the flan. Serve cold.
